A credit score is a numeral representation of your predicted credit habits such as the ability to pay your bills and loans back on time. Based on your credit score, lenders can estimate how creditworthy you are. Typically, a good score falls between 670 and 739 while a great score falls between 740 and 800. Anything above 800 is stellar! Therefore, providing your lender with your credit score is an important indicator of your credit behavior.
