Best Answer

Your payment history makes up 35 percent of your 3 digit fico score. Your debt to income ratio makes up 30 percent of your fico score. 15 percent is based on length of credit history. 10 percent is based on new credit and the other 10 percent is based on the types of credit used.

What is one's average credit score in purchasing a house?

There is no average credit score for people purchasing a house. Since the credit score is not the only criteria being evaluated,a person with an excelellent credit score, say above 700, but with inadequate income would not qualify for a loan. Since there are so many factors at play, determining an average is nearly impossible.

How can you get a zero as your credit score?

Typically, if you see a "zero" or nothing as a credit score it is due to the consumer having no credit or not having any positive credit that would contribute to the scoring system. A consumer can have nothing but negative credit on their report and this would not generate a score. A score is normally generated when the consumer has had a loan and/or credit card history.

Is 215 a good score?

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.

If you transfer all your credit card balances into one account would that affect your credit score negatively?

You had a judgment deleted from your credit report due to a misunderstanding with the credit bureau how many points will your credit score increase?

It depends on other factors of your credit report--but I have seen personally a FICO score increase 140 points once a judgment has been removed. Here are the scoring factors and their weights on a FICO scores: Payment History 35%, Amount of Credit Owing 30%, Length of Credit History 15%, New Credit 10%, and Type of credit in use 10%. Because these factors are considered, it depends. I would say from 50-150.
