Credit Scores are created by a mathematical formula that reviews a person’s outstanding credit, credit history, and past payments. Credit scores can range between 300 to 850 and are used to help lenders determine how likely you are to make your proposed payments on time. The higher the score, the less likely people are to default on their loan.

When it comes to applying for a mortgage, your credit score is the main factor in determining everything from your interest rate, to your monthly payments, and the terms of your loan.
