 With so much information out there about how to improve credit, we’re here to set the record straight.

Age of credit (15 percent) — How long your accounts have been open.

Inquiries (10 percent) — The number of credit-based checks you did in a 12-month period.

Types of credit (10 percent) — Lenders will look to see if you have experience with a diversity of loans.

Now that you know how this is Calculated you can better work on your credit!
