Declined with a 737 score ?!?
Tags: bad credit score, credit decline, credit repair
I read an interesting article on Yahoo this week that told the story of a car buyer who was turned down…WITH A 737 SCORE!!! The reason? A thin credit file. (Read the full article here: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/first-person-737-credit-rating-still-turned-down-233100307.html)
Remember: Even though may think you have a great score, make note that in a world where banks are “playing it tight” your borrower must show an ability to repay. The best way to show the ability to repay is to show a pattern of positive payment on other credit lines. Remember to always pay your bills on time (especially during the borrowing process).
Also, it is important to know the importance of a healthy mix of credit. Having a car, student loan, a few revolving accounts and an installment loan shows a well-rounded borrower (say, when compared to someone with only 13 student loans…even if they have a 737 score!)
