I don't have a mortgage and don't plan on having one. Since a mortgage figures into the FICO score, does not having one mean that there is a limit as to how high my score can go by not having a mortgage?

My son has an 825 with car loans only, no credit cards or mortage.

My son was 26 years old when I viewed this event. These were lender pulled reports. Ironically, all three reports had the exact same number.

On the experian score simulator, if I remove my mortgage, I lose 17 points.
So really not sure since there are people out there with no mortgage but with very high fico's (above 800)

I would like to thank all of you for your input, it gives me hope that I can reach my goal.
