Equifax Score from MyFico

I pulled today's score from myfico and it's still under 700 which seems a bit odd to me.

 

Experian 725 (myfico)

Transunion 746 (myfico)

Equifax 689 (myfico)

 

No baddies on any of the reports. 

7K balance on 1 card and no balances on 9 other credit cards

Total credit line 36K total used is 7K

1 paid mortgage account

1 current mortgage account

2 auto loans

4 paid $0 dollar balance auto loans

 

 

Fico simulator says in 6 months I'll be at 709   :smileysad:

Fico simulator says if I pay off 3K more on my card I'll be at 719 ?

 

Why is equifax ding'ing me so hard?

Re: Equifax Score from MyFico

What is the CL on the $7K card?  How close is it to being maxed out?

 

The scores available here vary widely in age -- TU 98, EQ 04, EX 08.  They won't necessarily match each other.

It's 7500 so it's close to max out.

I don't know if EQ 04 is more harsh with maxed out cards than the others.

 

But you're definitely taking a hit with 93% utilization on that card.

+1, at a swag that's a difference of 15ish points in your case I suspect.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 679, EQ 8 708, TU 711, EX 702* (07/14/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Re: Equifax Score from MyFico

So is it that equifax is treating that one card harder then the other two CRA's?

Re: Equifax Score from MyFico

You have a maxed out card, and this is a negative for scoring purposes, and different scoring models will weight this differently.

 

I don't know the exact details of how EQ 04 works compared to the others, but I would expect variations of this sort.
