5 Keys To Unlocking A Better Credit Score

AAA

A credit score is the key to understanding how creditworthiness is evaluated by lending institutions, as a good credit score can unlock the vault to help obtain financing.

Your payment history, loans outstanding and a general indebtedness are statistically evaluated by the credit bureaus. The big three of the industry are: Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. Based upon a compilation of that data, your profile is assigned a number between 300 and 850, with 300 being the least credit worthy and 850 being the most credit worthy.
