Re: wrong equifax score

Unless the scoring models used are the same, the scores cannot be compared.

 

There are many variations of FICO and FAKO algorithms floating around.

TU and EX Fico's here are outdated versions....EQ Fico from here is the only one "90% of lenders" use.

(EX08 - 654) --- (TU08 - 643) --- (EQ08 - 667) --- (EQ04 - 676)

EX score from here is not outdated.  It is the newest version, 08.

I'm sorry...so it's just that most lenders have decided not to use the new version yet?

Pretty much, yes.  Lenders decide which version/model benefits them the most.

 

And as far as mortgages changing what they use, I don't see them doing it.
