What number is a good score?

 

How does this break down in scores?

 

 



Starting Score: FAKOs EQ 537 TU 497 EX 517
Current Score 7/11/13: FICOs EQ 650 TU 659 EX 655
Goal Score: 675 Who am I kidding? Goal Score: 750+ :smileyhappy:

I have never seen an official chart from FICO.  But, if you search the internet, they will be all over the place.

I can't answer that, but I can tell you that 641 and 653 came up as "Not Good", while 690 and 698 fall into the "Good" category.  

 

I have a 723 alert currently from Score Watch, but it doesn't tell me if that's considered "Good" or "Very Good."

Re: What number is a good score?

My EX score had been 663 and it listed as good but after two inquiries it dropped to 655 and it now listed as not good so I'm thinking that 660 is the mark for good. What's the highest FICO? 850? So maybe 660-720 is good, 720-780 very good, above 780 great?? Something like that.

This might be pretty close. One of my scores is 724 and it's "good" and one is 725 and it's "very good"
