FICO VS Vantage Scores

By: Daniel Rosen April 06, 2021

I get this question all the time,  “Which credit score model is the best one?” 

Or “Why can scores be so different based on which monitoring you use?”

And so often, clients check their CreditKarma or CreditSesame or any of the free credit monitoring scores and notice their score either went down or is different from the score you told them.

So why is that?

 


 

No Two Scoring Models are the Same

How is it that credit scores can vary depending on the monitoring you used?

The short answer is, it’s because there are different scoring models. 

Some are modeled for various credit card lending decisions, some are for mortgage lending decisions, some are for automotive lenders, and on and on. 

Most of the free credit score monitoring use their own scoring models. This means they use their own criteria to determine the score. 

Then there are the big ones like FICO, which has  28 different scoring models!

The other big one is Vantage, which has 4 different models. Each one is used for a specific purpose.

As if that wasn’t enough, many of the largest lenders in the country have their very own internal scoring model!

Which is exactly why  scores can be so different from one place to the next.

There’s NO “Best” Scoring Model

So how do you know which score to choose? 

There isn’t just one that’s best. The important thing is you STICK with whichever you choose that way you can accurately track changes. 

Think of credit monitoring as a gauge. Keeping your eye on that gauge gives you and your clients a general idea of how they're doing and the results you’re getting them. 

When negative items are removed, or debt is paid down - the gauge goes up and you know progress has been made. 

On the flip side, when negative items are added, or debt goes up - the gauge goes down and you know there is a problem. 

You or your client may have your own preference as to which credit monitoring they prefer, but whatever it is, you need to stick with it and not jump around!

All your hard work, all your pressure, and persistence, all your expertise on behalf of your credit repair client, it all boils down to one simple number, the credit score. But there is one big problem. There are a ton of different scoring models. And it's really confusing. Which one is the best? Which one should I use? What's considered a good credit score? Well, today, I'm going to clear this up once and for all! So stick around! 

 

So the big question is this. How can we take our passion for helping people with their credit, and turn it into a successful business without taking loans without spending a fortune by bootstrapping it from nothing, so we can help the most people and still become highly profitable? That is the question, and this podcast will give you the answer. My name is Daniel Rosen, and welcome to Credit Repair Business Secrets.

 

Okay, before I dive in, if you want me to hold you by the hand, as you launch your very own credit repair business, go to creditherochallenge.com. Okay, let's get into this! Now, how many times has a client called you because they checked their Credit Karma, or their Credit Sesame, or any of the other free credit tracker scores, and then they complain that their score either went down or is different from what you told them? It happens all the time, right? But why? Well, the short answer is, it's because they have different scoring models! In Most of the free credit score trackers, they use their own scoring models, which means they use their own criteria to determine your score. And then you look at the big ones like FICO, for example. Right now, FICO has 28 different scoring models. That's 28 different scores! Some are modeled for various credit card lending decisions, some are for mortgage lending decisions, some are for automotive lenders, and on, and on, and on, and on. Now, the other big one is a Vantage, which has four different scoring models. And they're each used for a specific purpose. And then many of the largest lenders in the country, they have their own internal scoring model. So that's a major reason why scores can be so different from one place to the next. So which score is the best? None of them! There isn't one that's best. The important thing is that you stick with whichever one you choose. And that way you can accurately track the changes. Think of credit monitoring as a gauge. Keeping your eye on that gauge, it gives you and your clients a general idea of how they're doing and the results that you're getting them. When negative items are removed, or debt is paid down, the gauge goes up, and you know progress has been made. And when negative items are added or debt goes up, the gauge goes down. And then you know there's a problem. So just using one source of truth, to monitor the credit, that is the most important thing you can do. Because if you're just looking at one place, that one place becomes the baseline. You or your client, you may have your own preference as to which credit monitoring you prefer. But whatever it is, you need to just stick with it and not jump around. With Credit Repair Cloud, you can actually choose from many different options. And all of them offer the three bureau reports that come directly from the credit bureaus and all three scores.
