Your credit score plays an important role in your ability to advance and achieve your goals. But seriously - what is it? I can’t be the only one completely mesmerized by the #creditkarma score simulators. Credit Karma relays information about Equifax & Transunion reports and you can get Real-time updates on issues. Many credit cards will relay your FICO score but not give much info on your actual credit report.
When you break it down - there are different types of scores and each one is designed to show your potential in a different light. It’s important to keep an eye on short term (Vantage Score/Equifax/etc) and long term - FICO. Most lenders and landlords (about 90%!) use FICO score. The FICO range is 300-850.
