We’ve all heard of them – the credit score myths that pop up just when you’re getting ready to apply for a home loan.
Here are the most common ones I hear from prospective buyers.
Myth: Checking your credit score will lower your score. You can check your own credit score as many times as you want without impacting your score as long as you are pulling it from a consumer website or directly from one of the 3 Bureaus.
Myth: I pay for everything with Cash, I have no debt, I have great credit. Absolutely False! This person probably has a N/A for a credit score and most lenders will automatically turn him/her down.
