Is a credit score of 671 good?
671 is a good score thru the eyes of a mortgage lender. Anything over 620 will get you a conventional rate or the street rate you hear offered on the radio or tv. There are a number of different credit scores. Since you did not indicate what credit score you are referring to I am assuming you are referencing your FICO score. You have 3 FICO scores, 1 for each of the major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union). The score measures the likihood you will repay your debt. You can help increase your score by paying on time and reducing your debt. The score is also used by lenders for loan decisions and interest rate assignment. The FICO score ranges from 300 to 850. The minimum FICO score lenders like to see is 723. The national average is about 678.
If you are talking about credit score, understand that I am not a credit expert, but since a credit score of 620 is bad, 215 would be a terrible credit score. If this is for a test like the SAT, this is also horrible. The average score of the SAT is about 500, and even that isn't that good of a score.
A credit report basically contains information about your credit history, whereas Credit score is a number which is generated on the basis of your credit report. Score totally depends upon one's credit record, if history is good, credit score will be high. I always check my credit score free at Freecreditscore.com.
