Buying or Refinancing a Home?
Whether you're purchasing your first home, or refinancing your fifth, you're going to want the lowest interest rate possible. Your FICO® Scores can have a significant impact on the interest rate you're able to get, and ultimately how much your payments will be.
It's important to access and understand your FICO® Scores early in the process, so you can learn where you stand—and your chances of getting a better rate. A lower interest rate can help you save thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage.
Review All Three Credit Reports and FICO® Scores Before Applying for a Mortgage
Did you know that in most mortgage loan application reviews, lenders pull FICO Scores from Experian, TransUnion and Equifax? Even minor discrepancies in your credit reports can impact your scores negatively—and potentially the mortgage loan interest rate you might qualify for. That's why it's important to access and review your reports and FICO Scores from all three credit bureaus. All our credit report products include the FICO Scores most commonly used in mortgage, auto and credit card lending decisions.
