The Magic of 24

24…that is the average number of points scores increased in 2013 as a result of a rescore. Think about it…how many more loans could have been closed with an extra 24 points? Rescores had an average success rate of 91% in 2013 with 60% of those rescores being accomplished simply by the borrower paying down a balance or two on credit cards.

As most have heard by now there may be some changes coming that will make the possibility of rescoring even more important. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has introduced a plan to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that implement certain changes to the loan-level price adjustments (LLPA) If these changes are implemented borrowers are going to need a minimum of at least a 740 credit score to incur the least amount of damage. While currently, a 680, 700 or 720 can result in better pricing that will no longer be the case if this plan is implemented.
