To qualify for a conventional mortgage you should have a 620 FICO credit score. This is the minimum credit score required. At a 740+ FICO credit score, you would have access to the best available interest rates on the market.

The best way to get a quote on your potential mortgage interest rate, is to speak with one of our licensed mortgage consultants. Once they have an understanding of your specific mortgage goals, they can provide you with a loan estimate that will include your best mortgage options. There are several key factors that affect your mortgage rate such as: your credit score, location of the property, loan to value, amount of your down payment, the term of your loan and the type of loan you require. A licensed mortgage consultant can help customize the best loan available that fits your specific needs.

It’s FREE to get a full pre-approval with TexasLending.com. We do not charge upfront fees or application fees to get pre-approved like some other lenders.

Equity, simply put, is the difference between the value of your home and the amount owed on the loan. An appraisal can determine the fair market value of your home, so that you can calculate the amount of equity you hold.

Improving your credit score can involve a number of variables that are unique to your personal credit history. These are a few basic steps to building stronger credit history and improving your score:
  • Utilize different types of credit
  • Make all payments on time
  • Pay down revolving credit lines to below 30% of the credit limit
  • Don’t close older credit accounts, even if you aren’t using them
  • Avoid co-signing on loan or lease agreements for other people if possible
  • Budget your spending so that you don’t over extend your credit

A licensed appraiser provides an assessment of the fair market value of the property and provides a detailed report to the mortgage company. Appraisals are required for all purchase loans and many refinance loan programs. Having a current appraisal protects both the borrower and lender in a real estate transaction by confirming the value of the property.

Escrow accounts are required on all government backed mortgages including FHA, USDA, and VA loans. Escrow accounts are not required for conventional mortgages that have more than 20% equity in the loan to value ratio. There are advantages to having an escrow account as a part of your mortgage. A large majority of Texas home owners keep the escrow account as a part of their mortgage structure, but a few choose to waive escrow.

Your mortgage payment is applied to paying back the principal balance of the loan, the interest, and the monthly contribution to the escrow account. Use our mortgage payment calculators to see your estimated monthly mortgage payment:
