Credit score

A credit score is a number that reflects the credit history as outlined in an individual’s credit report (also see FICO score). A lender will use the credit score as part of the process of assigning interest rates and terms to the loans they make. A good credit score is around 720. The higher the credit score, the better the terms that a lender will offer. It is possible to raise a credit score over time and by appealing incorrect items that appear on the credit report. It is smart for consumers to monitor and track their credit reports to ensure that the information is correct and to make sure that disputed items have been removed.
