Saying you have a 700 credit score is not considered as good as it used to be, especially with new scoring modules for the mortgage indusrty. 


The below is a good rule of thumb


840 - 800 Best

799 - 760 Excellent

759 - 740 Very Good

739 - 720 Good

719 - 700 Above Average

699 - 640 Average

639 - 620 Below Average

619 - 600 Poor

599 - 550 Very Poor

549 - 500 Extremely Poor

499 - 350 Worst  


Online consumer FICO scores, though pulled through Equifax, Trans Union and Experian, are Not mortgage credit scores.


Every product has a different scoring module. Trying to finance a car would show different scores than a trying to finance a boat or applying to obtain a credit card, etc.


So attempting to shop for a mortgage using online credit scores could be a huge waste of time. This is why fully applying for a Mortgage and knowing your Mortgage Credit Scores is so important.
