Experian is now selling VanageScore. These

financial institution will use. Equifax is the
only credit bureau that sells the Fair Isaac score model. They
call their version "Beacon."
FICO scores range from 350 to 850. The average is around
700. 65% of your score is based
on your outstanding credit and how you pay your bills. If you
have no credit cards, loans,
mortgages or revolving accounts, you won't have a score. If you
only have collections or

We recommend that you

the TransUnion 4 months
later and the Equifax 4 months after that.
