If you don't have credit, you **can't** have a score, since they are solely based on your use of your credit. The bureaus return a report saying "no credit information on file".

as far as your credit score goes, than answer is a resounding YES, that is a great credit score. Of course there are other factors such as your income, your work history, what kind of credit you currently have, what type of financing are you looking for, etc.

There is not an average expected credit score to receive a mortgage loan. You may have a low credit score, and an high income and still be able to qualify. Loans are not just based on credit score.
