Loan terms and rates are determined by credit scores. Following is a guideline table for loan % to value on sub-prime conventional loans:
|Credit scores||Loan % to Value||Down payment required|
|600-620||100% loan to value||No down payment|
|560-580||90-95% loan to value||5-10% down payment|
|550-560||85-90% loan to value||10-15% down payment|
|535-550||80-85% loan to value||15-20% down payment|
|500-535||80% loan to value||20% down payment|
In addition to demand for increased down payments, a lower credit score dictates higher interest rates. Bad credit can cost you thousands of dollars over the life of a home mortgage loan. That is an unfortunate reality for the majority of American consumers.
