Friday’s Factors and Events
Even a representative at FICO — the scoring model most lenders use to check applicants’ creditworthiness — says that having a credit score in the top 2% of the U.S. population won’t further benefit you, so there’s no need to stress.
“The reality is that, from the standpoint of qualifying for credit, it doesn’t matter whether you have a perfect 850 or a score just below that,” Ethan Dornhelm, VP of FICO scores and predictive analytics, tells CNBC Select. “To lenders, a consumer with a score in the 800s is a sparkling applicant.”
