Thanks

I'm not sure it's worth pursuing though to get the best rate, which is the main purpose of doing a refi except for a small cash out to pay some college loans.

Re: FICO scores used for mortgage - and where to obtain them

I checked my experian fico2 score last week and it was 620 but when I tried to get a home I was denied because my experian score is 533. The same score model was used so I don't understand. Is there a difference with the scores on myfico versus what lenders use?

Re: FICO scores used for mortgage - and where to obtain them

...more than 90% of mortgage lenders use the fico mortgage scores

 

...you say that you used the fico 2 which is the experian specific mortgage score ...did you buy a report in order to obtain that ...its not available unless you buy it ...and if you did, when exactly did you buy it?

 

...did your fico 8 scores drop by by a similar amount? 

 

...your 620 score indicates that you have existing negatives, it would be unusual for an additional negative to drop your score by ~80 points unless it was something like a tax lien or judgement ...either of those should have resulted in a concomittant drop in the fico 8 score

Re: FICO scores used for mortgage - and where to obtain them

To get the mortgage scores, is it cheaper to get the month service or to order the 3b report.

I assume both have the mortgage scores?

The monthly subscription only includes the full set of scores (including mortgage scores) quarterly (every three months).

 

The monitoring is FICO 8 only... you'd need to buy additional 3B reports to see updated mortgage scores more frequently.

 

Which is a real shame - a mortgage score monitoring service would be a great product...
