How is a CREDIT SCORE determined?

Based on the information in your credit report, lenders calculate your credit score so they can assess the risk you pose to them before they decide whether they will give you credit. The higher your score, the less risk you pose to creditors.


What information does a CREDIT REPORT actually have about a person?

A credit report contains information on where a person works and lives, how they pay their bills, and whether they’ve been sued, arrested, or filed for bankruptcy. The Consumer Reporting Agencies gather this information and sell it to creditors, employers, insurers, and others for purposes of profiling each individual who has a Credit Report with their Credit Score. The most common type of Consumer Reporting Agency is the credit bureau.

What bases a CREDIT REPORT?

Your credit report is based on the bills and payments you have missed or been late paying, loans that you have paid off, plus your current amount of debt.


Credit reporting is a system lenders use to decide whether or not to give you credit or a loan and how much interest they can charge you for it.

Credit Score services that monitor your credit report

By monitoring daily or monthly activities is something unheard of by most people. It’s because staying in the dark is what the default option generally is. But if you want the light to shine, you might as well “just do it” and start monitoring your credit report so you know what is going on when you least expect that changes in your credit report will fluctuate your credit score in a fashion that is potentially cyclical every month. Now, what will you do to make it worthwhile your effort?


Fixing your credit report

If your car is mis-aligned, your car will drive wobbly and not take you where you need to go in a comfortable and smooth fashion. Just like a credit report. Having items listed that aren’t aligned with you need to be fixed so that the report can be aligned and tailored to reflect your actual status. If you actually have a mis-alignment, you can then know what your next step you need to take in order to get closer to alignment.
