what is the credit profile of someone with a 760 or higher?

It seems liked 760 is when a score goes from "very good" do "great" according to scorewatch and to most lenders.

Can someone tell me what the profile is like of someone with a 760 or better?
I know everyone's situation is different.

My highest Fico is currently 740 as of today

My Profile:
Total Accounts: 13
Open: 8
Closed: 5
Accounts w/ balances: 4 (2 CC's, 2 Install)
Oldest account: 8 years
Youngest account: 1 month
Total revolving Limit: $10,940 (500 CL from capital one not included)
Utilization: 99% available credit
Public records: 0
Inquiries: 0
Late Payments: (2)60 day late payments--one in 2005, one in 2003

In my case what's hurting me are those 2 lates and my newest open account.
FYI my score was 590 in February of this year

You think a 740 is bad? Once you surpass 720 it doesn't even matter anymore. As far as a lender is concerned, there's no real difference between a 720 and a 760 at that point. Smiley Happy

I didn't think your FICO could get that high with any derogatory information.
 
I sure hope I can join the 700 club someday.
Here we go again...

A 760+ FICO score looks just like yours with some exceptions.
=> Oldest account: 8 years. (many 760+ have the oldest at least 10 yrs)
=> Late Payments: (2)60 day. (mostly all 760+ have no negs)
also (Many 760+ scores have 1 credit limit over $10,k)

This doesn't mean you have to have the above but it helps.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Re: what is the credit profile of someone with a 760 or higher?

I had a lot of late payments and terrible utilization--the two biggest things I corrected were these things.

The two biggest reasons that my score went up so much--from 590 to 740 was because
I got a lot of negative info removed thru disputing and GoodWilling, and because I got
my utilization down to under 10% for the past 4 months (1%) this month. I also added nearly 10,000 of new credit--up until that time I only had two cards--orchard bank and capital one, both with $500 limits

This is what my credit report looked like with a 590:

total accounts: 10
open accounts: 5
closed accounts: 5
accounts w/ balances: 5
Total Revolving Credit line: $500
Utilization: USING OVER 95% AVAILABLE CREDIT
INQURIES: 6
PUBLIC RECORDS: 1 CHARGE OFF
LATE PAYMENTS (8) 30 DAY LATES, (4) 60 DAY LATES (3) 90 DAY LATES

So as you can see I have done some major cleaning
