First time Home Buyer giving stats

I'm not sure if this will help anyone or anything but I did my preapproval this past Wed (February 13th and was approved for the asking amount I wanted of 250k) with Mortgage Numbers EX.711, TU 685, and EQ 719 and when the guy told me he saw my report and they used the middle score of 711 I was like RIGHT ON THE MONEY!     I was so happy how accurate MyFico is and this is NOT what CreditKarma or CreditSesame says my score reports so if you are looking around I would recommend definitely using the middle score of the Mortgage Options to base if you want to go ahead and shoot the shot or hold off a little I couldn't be happier and I'm so glad I waited for it to reflect over 700 too!    Ty and hopefully this helps!?

Thank you for sharing, I typically always pick the lowest score if I'm talking to a lender lol. I will keep this in mind when the time comes Smiley Happy

That's a good mentality to have though just to be safe that way if it is higher then perfect!

*update* It's 4/2/19 and I asked my mortgage person if by chance I could go a bit higher so I am at 270k at 4% (that % might be harder to nail though since it does fluctuate :/)   middle mortgage score of 715 Smiley Very Happy     Our first couple of inspections are tomorrow and if all goes well by the end of this month I'll be a home owner!     *fingers crossed* and I'll still keep posting to hopefully help
