FICO Scoring Changes May Help More Qualify for Mortgages

By Alice Proski August 28, 2014

  FICO recently told lenders their high credit score “cutoffs” were stricter than necessary, and urged lenders to consider lowering minimum score requirements.   The changes include reducing the toll that overdue medical bills can take on credit scores, as well as removing other past penalties from consumers who have paid off debts that had been assigned to collection agencies.

Scottsdale Homes for Sale

Much ado has been made of the real estate market in Arizona over the last decade. From good times and “McMansions” to a terrible rock-bottom scenario after the real estate bubble disaster, it has been a long ride.   Coming mostly from Alberta and British Columbia, residents from the “Oil capital of North America” fled the cold (as well as housing prices nearly double, per square foot, the prices down here) to escape the winter and relax in the Valley of the Sun. “Ultimately, end of story, it’s sun and warmth. That’s all there is to it,” said Rick Metcalf, founder of CANAM Realty Group. “If you have cash, you are 50 to 60 years old and you want a […]
