What Is 1 Percentage Point Among Friends?

A while back our partners at National Credit Care sent us some shocking information. We know that someone with a relatively high credit score is more likely to receive the most aggressive terms compared to someone who has relatively average credit. We see this almost every day. What we don’t see is the potential savings over time that a client could earn with a little more focus and attention to their credit score. Lets go over some fun math!

Sample Scores & Rates from MyFico.com on a 30 year fixed mortgage loan for $250,000

760-850       3.447%

700-759       3.669%

680-699       3.846%

660-679       4.060%

640-659       4.490%

620-639       5.036%

The Difference Could Be Worth Half Of A Million Dollars or More!

In this example, the difference between what a person with a 639 score pays in interest versus what a person with a 700 score pays in interest is $78,000 for this one loan. That is a lot of money all by itself, but now consider all the other loans that one typically pays for in a lifetime; auto loans, credit cards, bank loans, etc. That could easily be a difference of over $100,000 because of the higher rates associated with those loans. If you have $178,000 to invest over 30 years, you could conservatively earn more than $325,000 with that money over that time period. Add that to the amount you paid in additional interest and a slightly lower credit score over 30 years has cost you at least half of a million dollars!
