Does it really matter?
much does your credit score really cost you?
fluctuate. Below you will find example rates pulled off the MYFICO website.
Regardless of what rates are, these general rules typically apply. For the most
part, when you’re in the low 600 credit score range, you lower your interest
rate by a half point for every 20 point increase to your credit score ($75 a
month or $27,000 over the life of your loan (for a 250k loan)). Once you’re
above a 660, it’s about a quarter point per 20 score points ($37 a month) up to
mortgage loan on a 30 year fixed loan
this fun math out, the difference between a 639 and a 700 (which really isn’t
much) over the life of this loan is about $78,000 in interest. Then, add in all
your auto loans, credit cards and bank loans, who really blast you with higher
interest rates over that same 30 years, and this could easily equate to
$100,000 or more. Now you are looking at an additional 178K in interest over 30
years. Now look at this gem, you have a staggering $178,000 less to invest over
30 years...a massive opportunity lost (something nightmares are made of).
Conservatively, you could earn $325,000 with that money over that time frame.
Add that to the amount you paid in additional interest in the first place and
slightly lower credit scores over just 30 years could cost you HALF OF A
MILLION DOLLARS or even MORE. If you earn more than the average wage of 60K a
year, after tax, it would take you 10 years of work to make up the
difference... Isn’t it worth getting your credit scores up??
