Know Your Credit Score for Mortgage Approval
As promised, here is the continuation of my series "4 Things That Could Stop You From Getting Approved for a Mortgage"
The first thing that could stop you from getting approved for a mortgage is not knowing your credit score.
Many people use Credit Karma to track their credit score but most people don't understand that Credit Karma is not your true credit score.
When lenders are looking to approve you for a mortgage, they are looking at your FICO score. Credit Karma does not give you your FICO score.
If you really want to know your credit score is, my suggestion is to log into myfico.com and sign up for a subscription. That will guide you and let you know what your credit score really is.
