Credit scores of 740 and above get the best interest rates for conventional loans. How do you get a score above 740? The number one way, of course, is to pay your bills on time. However, another way to get higher scores is to pay down the balances on your credit cards. If the balance is above 70% of the credit limit, that's the worst. If the balance is between 50% and 70% of the credit limit, that's better. If it's between 30% and 50%, that's even better, and if it's below 30%, that's the best.
