771 Credit Score – HOW HIGH OF A CREDIT SCORE IS ENOUGH?? How to Pad Your Score Against Diff Lender Scoring Models


771 Credit Score – Highest Rated?

Many Consumers wonder why there are such big differences in scores when Lenders run their credit. For many Lenders, the excellent score range begins at 760 and above. So how confident should a Consumer with a #CreditScore of 771 from Credit Karma, Experian, or some other free credit provider feel knowing there’s a likely chance a Lender will generate a score below 760 when they run the Consumer’s credit using their own proprietary scoring model?

Getting to 800 is considered a safe benchmark but takes time. The road to 700 is much easier than to 800 because it’s not a linear timeline due to the complex credit algorithms that crunch Consumer data.

Here’s a quick checklist in getting well above 800 and staying there:

1. Apply for lots of cards (Revolving Accounts) and use them every month for low transactions
2. Have at least one loan (Installment Account) reporting

Time is the most important factor in getting above 800 and staying there. It will likely take at least several years of making payments and having those Lenders report those payments and low balances. More payments pads the #PaymentHistory factor of a credit score, which contributes the most. I’m not suggesting overspending but simply implying that by breaking up transactions for items you would buy anyways into smaller ones across all your cards, you will benefit with an increased credit score over time. The low monthly transaction credit strategy across many cards is a tried and true method many credit gurus and specialists practice.

    Hey there, I found you have a deep understanding about credit score. I am real estate agent and have a group 10k who like to know more about you and your content. Would it be cool to chat?

    My strategy is to continue to use my 13 credit cards responsibly in 2021 and not apply for any new personal cards until 1/2022 but I will apply for at least one business credit card because I want to get into chase family. I still have 5 months to meet the Amex platinum and BCP spend. Thanks again for the tip about the dormant credit card usage. I really enjoy your videos!!😄

    #LongGame. 684 on both bureaus in Canada and 2 of 3 charge offs dropping from my file by next May, so I'm on my way. 5 credit cards including Cobalt and two installment loans as well. Just need higher limits over time and for hard inquiries to drop off.

    Also on the myFICO app it shows that it's possible to be a Fico high flyer (785)with one missed payment, if it's more than for years old . As I said as of right now my late payment is 3years and 10 months . Also what do you think about secure loans?

    I have the my Fico credit monitoring app and I'm 666 Equifax 697 Trans union and 706 Experian but on credit karma I'm 762 on Transunion and 762 on Eqifax . I know the vantage 3.0 scoring model is different from Fico it's just frustrating. All my utilization is at 2 percent I have 7 credit cards with 55,000 available credit. And I am an authorized user on 3 other cards limits 22,000, 12,500 ,10,000 I have no auto loan and no personal loans on my profile. I have a late payment that was 3 years and 11 months ago ( I know that doesn't effect vantage ) what do I do to improve??????
