Know Your FICO Score. Be Credit Score Smart.

Your FICO® Score is a number that summarizes your credit risk. McLean Mortgage and other lenders use it to make credit decisions, such as the interest rate you get when you apply for a loan. Your FICO® Score is calculated based on the scores reported from the 3 major credit reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion).

Using mathematical models, the FICO® score takes into account various factors in each of these five areas to determine credit risk: payment history, current level of indebtedness, types of credit used, length of credit history and, new credit. Lenders also look at other areas when making a credit decision including: your income, how long you have worked at your present job and the kind of credit you’re requesting. A person’s FICO® score will range between 300 and 850. In general, having a FICO® score above 650 indicates that the individual has a very good credit history, and will be able to get financing at a more favorable rate.
