your FICO Score so you can fix it and get better loans.

Are you getting the best rate when it comes time to secure financing for your new home or condo? While simply being able to get financing requires a good FICO score, your credit score being lower than optimal will carry additional cost in interest rates. The Equifax Finance Blog explains in the article, “Are You Receiving the Best Interest Rates on Your Loans?
