FICO '08 POLICY

Is the general consensus about the new Fico '08 scoring system will help more Americans working to improve their credit, or help the mortgage industry?

I think it's designed to help reporting suscribers. Which we are not. Smiley Wink

Re: FICO '08 POLICY

my understanding is that those with thick credit histories and a good credit mix will see a score increase and those with thin credit histories with limited credit will receive fewer points.

Re: FICO '08 POLICY

When exactly will all these changes take place? Or have they already?

That is a mystery.  EX and TU possibly this year, EQ says after they and FI have finished sueing each other.

FICO 2008 will actually help those with thin files and those who have baddies that are old but still reporting. New buckets will be created for those with thin files and there will be even a greater emphasis on recent history, the last 24 months to be exact.

That's awesome. So, roughly, all of us that are on here should see a bump. Smiley Wink
 
Figuring that we are on here now should be getting cleaned up, by the time fico 08 goes in, we should all have at least a 6 mo clear history. (or longer)
 
That's actually really good news for me, since I've only had one late (in july) within the last 3-4 years.
