If your buyer doesn’t have a credit score, they may still be able to qualify for a mortgage by demonstrating alternative sources of creditworthiness. Requirements may vary depending on the lender and the type of mortgage they’re seeking, but some common ways to verify creditworthiness without a credit score include:

  • Proof of steady income and employment history
  • Evidence of financial stability, such as a large savings account or other assets
  • Three utility bills, cell phone, car insurance, or rent, with proof the buyer pays on time.

We qualify buyers as if they have a 660 credit score when they don’t have a credit score, and they do the above.

It usually takes about six months of credit for buyers to get a credit score. You can add someone to your credit card as an authorized user, which will sometimes reduce the timeframe to get a credit score. That borrower doesn’t need to know the credit card number or have access to the card. You can also add someone to a credit card to increase their credit score. One thing that is important to note is that a credit card with a high balance proportionate to the limit can adversely affect a credit score, so you need to be careful when adding someone to your credit card.
