Age is big predictor of net housing wealth. The report found that those over 60 hold 52% of all home equity. Those under 50 hold only 23%. Meanwhile, owners under 40 owned 17% of all owner-occupied housing units but had only 6% of accessible housing wealth.
Remember, a good credit score can help you secure an affordable mortgage, so it’s a smart idea to see where you stand before you start filling out applications. If your credit is looking a little lackluster, you may be able to improve your score ahead of time by disputing errors on your credit reports, paying down high credit card balances and limiting new credit inquiries until your standing rebounds.
