What Factors Affect Your Credit Score

What Factors Affect Your Credit Score


I hope everyone has had a great week so far! Hang on...it's almost FRIDAY!!!

It's been a while since I've been on here but today I want to write about credit scores. I'm writing this in hope of helping someone out there understand what following factors affect your score. 

Credit scores range from 200-850, scores above 620 are considered desirable for obtaining a mortgage.

1. Your Payment History

Did you pay your credit card bills on time? Bankruptcy filing, liens, and collection activity also affect your history.

2. How Much You Owe and Where

If you owe a great deal of money over numerous accounts, it can indicate that you are overextended. However, spreading debt among several accounts can help you avoid approaching the maximum on any individual credit line.

3. The Length Of Your Credit History

In general, the longer an account has been open, the better.

4. How Much New Credit You Have

New credit-whether in the form of instalment plans or new credit cards-is considered more risky, even if you pay down the debt promptly.

5. The Types Of Credit You Use

Generally, it is more desirable to have more than one type of credit-such as installment loans, credit cards, and a mortgage.
