Your credit history is the summary of the money you owe (credit cards, loans, etc.), how long you’ve owed it, and whether or not you make payments on time. Your credit score is based on all the facts in your credit history. It’s listed as a 3-digit number that tells lenders whether you have an excellent, good, fair, or poor credit rating.

PRE-QUALIFYING

Find out how much you qualify to borrow by getting pre-qualified. When sellers know you're pre-qualified, they look at you as a serious buyer. It’s a great negotiating tool, especially if you find yourself bidding against other buyers.
