New Credit Score Tailored for Lenders

By
Real Estate Agent with Boston Luxury Residential

The three major U.S. credit reporting agencies are offering a new FICO score for prescreening, originating, and servicing home loans that better predicts the likelihood of default.

The FICO 8 Mortgage Score from Fair Isaac Corp. uses the same 300-850 scoring range but more effectively flags accounts 90 days or more past due, which corrals more risky borrowers into the lower levels.

The new product also includes additional codes that help lenders understand and explain the ratings to applicants.
