800 Club!

Your Equifax FICO® score:804

On April 10, 2012

 

I've been hovering in the high 700's forever it seems.  Just got this from score watch today! :smileyhappy:  It jumped from 795 to 804 after I let one credit card report a balance (other than my AMEX charge card, which doesn't account for utilization).  I'm also thinking I may have had a boost because my mortgage balance went under 50% of the original loan amount, which I've heard (although I don't know for sure) is something that FICO likes to see.  I'm hoping TU and EX will follow later this week when PSECU and Walmart report.

 

Here are the stats I have that may be of interest:

 

Oldest Account: 26.2 years

Average Age of Accounts: 11 years

Utilization 1%

1 CC account reporting <1%

No lates, collections. public records

TU FICO - TU08 - 850 - 6/17/14

Congratulations as well!

 

I just received my Amex Gold and they've backdated  to 1983.  Puts my AAoA from about 7 years to over 11 and hopefully will boost my mid 700 scores a bit.

 

Hope to join you soon.

Re: 800 Club!

Awesome!

 

Always nice to see someone breaking 800.  It really is the line of demarcation from "excellent" to the "best" credit rating.

Re: 800 Club!

Thanks, guys! 

 

The interesting thing about the move upward seems to have something to do with my mortgage going under 50% of the original amount.  That's the only thing that really changed in my reports.  So, I did a little reading here and elsewhere, and I've discovered that the 50% mark on mortgages and installment loans seems to be a threshold for FICO scoring in some way.  I never knew this before.  This would explain a 10 point rise in my score that I can't explain any other way, but I'll take it! :smileyvery-happy:
