  • Excuse me, how did you get such a good credit score? And what is a credit score?
  • Well there are 3 CRA's, Equifax, Experian, and Transunion. Credit reports are created by the CRA. You can get one free credit report from each once a year. Each report may vary but they all contain roughly the same score usually between 300 and 850. Each report also contains info like your SSN Credit acct., and personal info.
  • To build your score, pay your bills on time all the time! Any late bill will affect your score for 7 years! Maintain reasonable amounts of available credit. Apply for credit sparingly and have a mix of different credit accounts. Lastly, don't have too many of one type of account!
  • Thank you so much! Now I can work on my score and make it better so I can get my loan!
  • You're very welcome! It was nice to help someone who needs it.
