Different drops in credit score for co-signed loan
I am co-signing a mortgage loan. While we were shopping for the loan, we noticed that our credit scores decreased by different amounts (-3 for me, and -8 for my partner). I understand that there will be a couple of points dropped during the shopping process, but why would there be such a big difference in a decrease when the only hard inquiries either one of us have had in the past two years are for the exact same mortgage inquiries?
