When you take out a mortgage, what does that do to your credit?
Credit reporting agencies are known to use a short-term ding on your credit score, followed by a significant boost once they see a consistent pattern of regular on-time payments. A mortgage loan can temporarily lower your credit score until you can prove you are capable of handling a large sum of debt.
On average it takes about 5 months to get your credit score back on-track. It is recommended to focus on making consistent on-time payments and keeping other debt responsibilities to a minimum. Remember, not all debt is bad debt and eventually your mortgage will manifest into good debt.

Continued Mortgage Trends
According to Freddie Mac, mortgage rates continue to fall but they still remain above 5% fueling an ongoing problem for buyers trying to break into the market.
In a recent article from CNN they reported on numbers from Freddie Mac showing that at the end of May 2021, a buyer who put 20% down on a $375,500 home, financed the rest with a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage with an average interest rate of 2.95% would have a $1,258 monthly mortgage payment that included principal and interest.
Today, if a homeowner bought the house at the same price with an average rate of 5.10% they would pay $1,631 a month in principal and interest. That is $373 more each month and $134,140 more in cumulative interest payments over the life of the loan , according to numbers from Freddie Mac.
