Credit Info




face="Arial, Helvetica, adobe-helvetica, Arial Narrow">Did you know that
75% of all mortgage lenders use a three-digit credit score to determine your
loan eligibility This score is based on the information contained in your
credit report. And the interest rate you will be charged is based on your credit
score, so raising your credit score as little as 15 points could result in a
lower interest rate and thousands in savings. You can save anywhere from a few
hundred dollars in credit card interest charges, thousands of dollars on your
next car loan, and tens of thousands of dollars on a mortgage loan simply by
improving your

issued credit. Some lenders require a debt-to-income ratio that may be higher
or lower than those stated below. See bottom of this page to find out how to
calculate your debt-to-income ratio.
