Can I get a FICO score in less than 6 months?
I have no credit history or FICO score and according to their website you need an account that is at least 6 months old to get one. Anyone know a way around this? RentalKharma claims to allow you to report 2 years of rental history to one of the credit bureaus, I forget which. Will that count? Or piggybacking on a parents credit card? I think they did away with the point boost but the history will still count right? Any input or suggestions will be helpful or how did you get a loan in less them 6 months starting with no credit score. Thanks
