How Your Credit Score Affects Your Mortgage Rate

To begin with, you'll need to know what your current credit score is. You should compare that against the average Kentucky consumer credit score which is 675. And the national average credit score is 677. Your credit score impacts what your home mortgage rate will be. Historically home mortgage rates have varied from 5% to over 13%. Lenders create their home mortgage rates by using the Federal Discount Interest Rate and then increase it by using an internal formula to create their own home mortgage rate. When you apply for a home mortgage, your home mortgage rate will be determined by a whole host of factors-- your credit score being very important.

Kentucky Mortgage State Laws:


Only Judicial foreclosure is practiced in Kentucky.

In cases of property abandonment, the lender is entitled to the property immediately after the borrower defaults.

In normal default cases, the court will determine how much the borrower still owes, and a short time period in which the borrower may pay it and maintain the property.

If the borrower fails to pay, the process of selling the property begins. The property is appraised and a sale date is set.

If the property sells for less than two thirds of its appraisal price, the borrower has one year to buy the property for its foreclosure price, plus interest.

Foreclosure processes usually take six months
