    Get a gas card for gas, for instance a BP credit card, and only get gas with it each month and pay the balance each month- thats what I do

    You might br able to qualify, barely on that credit score, if you have enough income, and a down payment saved. What price range house are you looking at, what’s your income, and how long have you had that much income; and how much do you have saved for a down payment and closing costs? Does your spouse have income also? If so, how much, and what is your spouse’s credit score?

    If you think you might qualify, ask a bank to prequalify you and tell you how much of a mortgage you might be able to get.

    Why is your score 620? Do you have bad credit or are you young and have limited credit history?
    You may be able to qualify for an FHA mortgage with a score of 620, but, more goes into a mortgage qualification than your score. You are going to need a down payment, how long you have been on your job counts and your debt/income ratios.

    Probably the bank would require your spouse to be added on the mortgage loan since your score is so low. You probably could get a loan, it would be higher interest. Moreover, I’d take steps to make your credit better such as opening up a credit card, paying off delinquent debts, etc.

    You need a good score which us 660/749 to get a good rate. It will probably take another 12 month of activity to get to 660

    A 620 credit score is enough to qualify for some loan programs. Specifically I’m thinking of FHA and USDA. Only some lenders will lend down to a 620 so I would suggest speaking with a Mortgage Broker who works with a number of different wholesale lenders. The reason your score is at 620 will also be a consideration, but that score alone will not rule you out. Good luck!
