Your Credit Score and Real Estate

TransUnion exec talks credit scores and real estate

NEW YORK – Jan. 29, 2018 – It may be winter now, but the spring house-hunting season is just ahead. John Danaher, president of consumer interactive at credit bureau TransUnion, says that makes this the perfect time for home-seekers who want the best terms and rates on a mortgage to take control of their credit.

TransUnion is one of the three major credit bureaus, which keep track of and provide consumer credit reports. Your credit report and score are integral to securing the best terms for a mortgage.

Question: Why think about real estate now?

Answer: Typically the home-buying season starts to heat up in the springtime. That is when people start looking around in earnest. So what we recommend is doing some work upfront to make that process go as smoothly as possible. That involves checking and knowing what your credit standing is and doing work to be preapproved for a loan so you’re ready when you find the house you want. It helps you set a budget and know how much house you can afford
