A Quick Guide to Your Equifax Credit Report & Equifax Credit Score

Your credit score is important when you’re in the market for a mortgage or other type of loan.  Factors relating to how much credit you have, how much of your credit limits are utilized and how you manage and make payments all contribute to the determination of your credit score.    Most creditors and lenders take all these into consideration when deciding whether or not you are a worthy credit risk.  Keeping all debts paid on time and utilizing a maximum of 75% of your credit limits will provide you with a high credit score and prove you are a good risk for credit and loans.

Watch this quick video to learn the basics on what goes into a credit report, how credit reports relate to credit scores, and how lenders may use them to make financial decisions about you.
