What Your Credit Score Really Means

Introduction to The Article

There are a lot of questions about the credit score, which is a bit of a mystery. Part of that mystery is made by the agencies that decide on the number. The formulas for figuring out the scores are kept secret, and the numbers aren’t easy to find, at least not without doing some work. People often want to know what a credit score is, who is in charge of it, what affects your score, and how it can affect your daily life. Plus, the economy is bad right now, which makes your credit score more important than ever. Let’s look at what a credit score is and how it affects you in more detail.

What Your Credit Score Really Means

A credit score is just a number that tries to rank how trustworthy you are as a borrower. When I was younger, if I needed a loan, I went to the bank. If I had a good reputation in the community or if the loan officer liked me, I could get a loan. Obviously, there is a flaw in that system. Anyone, no matter how trustworthy, can be a bad credit risk. So, the credit agencies came up with a way to try to treat everyone the same. They did this by figuring out how different things affected your ability to pay back the loan.

Is it really that important to have a good credit score?

After all, it’s just a number, right? Yes, but it’s a number that keeps coming up. Lenders are the most well-known example. They will look at your credit score to decide if you can get a loan and, if so, on what terms. But a lot more than just lenders look at your credit score. If you apply for a job, the company may look at your credit report before deciding whether or not to hire you. Credit scores help landlords decide who they will rent to. Before giving you a policy, insurance companies use them to figure out how risky you are.

Your credit score is important, no doubt about it. Now that you know more about it, you can take steps to keep your score the same or make it better.
