Is 620 a good credit score to buy a car?
According to FICO, consumers having scores in the 700-850 range are considered near-prime or prime borrowers. That means they’ll garner the lowest interest rates and most-favorable loan terms. Borrowers who fall below the 620 mark are often considered “subprime.” That means they’ll pay more to finance a car.
Can you get a loan with 620 credit score?
Most mortgage lenders will provide prime level loan rates with credit scores as low as 620. Some will go as low as 600, and a few as low as 580. Generally speaking, your best mortgage bet with fair credit is an FHA mortgage. Get a cosigner who has good or excellent credit.
