What types of positive credit are mortgage lenders looking for?

My hubby and I are working on improving our credit to become homeowners. Once I was told you needed to have a good mix of credit on your report to show you are responsible in all areas. We have two car loans, several student loans, and various other items.

We don’t have any credit cards, don’t really have a need for them. But everything I hear says you should have some revolving credit to show responsibility. I don’t want to get a credit card just for the sake of having one unless absolutely necessary.

Anyone with mortgage approval know anything about this?
