Do you know what your credit score is? While this number isn’t something you typically share with your friends over dinner, it’s important to be aware of it.
My husband and I are in the process of buying a new house and the interest rate for our mortgage was dependent on our credit scores. If you have a high credit score, you’ll get a low interest rate. Thankfully, we were able to get a good rate.
With rates going up, it’s important for your score to be as high as possible. A recent FTC study showed that 20% of Americans have errors on their credit report that are costing them money. Make sure you’re not one of them!
