Lender Simulator?

Has anybody used one and they worked to bring your scores up? I applied for a 0 down payment program yesterday and my lender said my fico was close to approval for the program. He told me he would run a simulator to see what to do to get my scores up. Every time I did the simulator here I never got the expected results. So I was just wondering if anybody got expected results from a lender.

Well, I'm in the process of doing the same thing so I'll let you know how it works.  From what I am told though it is very accurate.  Like within a few points accurate.  What they have access to is much more sophisticated (and propritery).

Re: Lender Simulator?

It is called a credit simulator. A computer program that uses the data in your credit report to compare possible effects on credit scores for various scenarios. For example, the operator can input payment data for selected tradelines and the program will responded with a "predicted" outcome. It is best used to determine the most effective use of available funds. Essentially the program is being asked questions like "What impact on the scores will paying down a tradeline by $100 have?"

Re: Lender Simulator?

Same as @Onrails I recently had the lender do a score simulation and will let you know if I make it to the estimated pt increase. My understanding from a few others before purchasing was that it is very accurate. Will keep you posted.


Starting Score: EFX 545, XPN 561, TU 539
Current Score: 4/3/14: 660 EFX (MyFico), 635 XPN , 680 TU

Re: Lender Simulator?

I keep hearing that it's very accurate - I believe this is an example of one and what it can do:

Re: Lender Simulator?

In my experience they are very close to spot on in most cases

Good Luck

Just thought I'd update this thread.  My lender repulled my scores yesterday and the predicted increase by the simulator was exactly right to the point.  So in my experience they are very accurate!  Smiley Happy

 

Middle score went from 678 to 735!  Smiley Very Happy
