    Mid 6's..

    It really depends on what you have done, NOt your age.. What is on your credit, How you've paid and when you've paid..

    Your score at 20 will not be a "mature" score... You haven't had any real time to show payment or account history...

    I'd do some of the suggested things to help your score, but just keep in the back of your mind that a few more years will get you into a better idea of where you stand in the face of a bank.

    Takes 3 months of some kind of installment, or revolving loan so that credit bureaus can determine a score..

    Depending on what you're trying to finance the scoring model may be different, as well as the requirements.

    A score especially when dealing with a mortgage is only a portion of what is looked at. They look at length of credit and what type of tradelines you have had and what the limits are. They also look at your payment history and even require that you have so many open tradelines of so much value.

    For example, if you are 20 years old with 1 credit card with a $500 limit. You have paid it ontime for the last 6 months but that is all you have to your name. A credit check might give you a mid 700 score. If you were 25 years old, had a slightly lower score, but you have several tradelines and credit cards with high limits, low balances, that are always paid on time, the bank would be more likely to lend to you than the guy with no credit depth but a high score. The score is not everything.

    This of course is how mortgage processes are looked at. If you are looking for a car loan, they pretty much go on credit score alone, so you might be ok with the first situation. HTH

    well im 20, but i dont think my score is going to be average for a 20 year old. I have had 2 car loans in my name, a house and 2 credit cards, all of which have never had a late payment and the cards have never seen a min. balance payment. Although one card has a high amount on it (about 60%). my score is like 650. It was higher before I put a house on it . I would consider this a real score though.

    Not always true...car dealers do manual reviews just like mortgage lenders do...they look at more than just your score...the more positive tradelines you have, the more likely you are to get approved...your debt-to-income ratio matters, too...you could have a perfect payment history, but if your DTI is too high, lenders may not want to lend to you, or they will charge you a higher rate.

    741 should get you the best rates, provided your ratios are okay.

    741 at 20 is a fake score. Mine was like that too. Get a real loan or somthing and i bet that score drops ATLEAST 100 points. Im working back up from almost 600 now im high 6's with a mtg and 2 car loans in my name. If your looking to buy a car I would for sure give it a try though because they do seem to base it 95% off your number score. Just know that when you get it your score will most likely fall quite a bit.

    No need for any big loans yet, but maybe sometime soon I will take out a small personal loan to get myself a better DD.

    not true I had a 755 at 23 after I sold my house. Having 40k in the bank after the sale helped a lot but after getting a new mortgage my credit score went back down to 640's.

    having 40k in your bank does not effect your credit score.

    selling a house will bump your credit up a little bit though. And a new one will reduce your score. Your same situation happend with me.
