What is in A Credit Score?

A credit score is a 3- digit number between 300-850. A credit score is used by lenders to determine whether a person qualifies for a particular home loan, auto loan, credit line, credit card, loan, or other service. Property managers and sometimes employers use this score to evaluate their own risk in entering agreements with you for property or evaluating you for employment. They are specifically evaluating the likelihood that a person will make payments on time. Generally the higher the score the less risk a person represents. Scores 720 and above are usually considered a safe risk and receive loans with lower interest rates.

Do you have negative items affection your credit score like overdue payments, charge offs and collection accounts, high credit card limits or a large number of inquiries? Do you have mistakes and misinformation reporting on your credit reports?

If you have bad credit you can improve your credit. Federal Laws were enacted to help protect consumers from errors and mistakes that can be made through no fault of your own.
