Will increasing my credit score by over 150 points help?
I was able to increase my credit score over the time of a few months by using a service called RentReporters. Overall my score went from 642 to 800!

My home will have a 500k mortgage.

Without further ado here is how RentReporters works and how it helped me:

RentReporters will report your rental history to the credit bureaus which in turn increases your credit score. I have been renting the past 5 years and they verified with my landlord that I made on time payments for the last 5 years. They then were able to add it to my credit report as an entry. I did not have to put much effort at all! Hopefully this will decrease my mortgage rate and save me lots of money.

Your Credit Scores Should Be Free. And Now They Are.
