Why is FICO Score Important?
Your FICO Score is incredibly important because it basically sets the tone for your financial profile in all walks of life for years. Because of having a FICO score hovering around 800 for years now, I’ve always been able to get the best mortgage rate for purchases and refis, I got the best new car loan rate when I bought my last car (I actually had the cash but took the loan at 0.9% and invested the same amount in a 4.5% CD and kept the difference!) and employers also check your credit score before hiring you.
Some institutions have their own credit scores but FICO is the “universal” one that virtually everyone uses as a constant. Many companies won’t use each others’ in assessing creditworthiness.
