A FICO score between 620 and 650 is considered fair to good credit.
But keep in mind, this range of credit scores does not guarantee you will qualify for a mortgage.
With an FHA mortgage, however, a FICO score of 600 or higher is enough to qualify for the 3.5% down payment loan.

What credit score do you need to qualify for a home loan?

FHA Loan – 580+ credit score (500-579 score is possible but unlikely) VA Loan – 620+ credit score (some lenders require 580) USDA Loan – 640+ credit score.
Can I get a home loan with a 640 credit score?
If your score is below 620 to 640: An FHA (Federal Housing Administration) home loan is your best option because most lenders won’t approve a conventional loan for borrowers with a credit score below 640.
