What’s your FICO score?

The Palm Beach Post - Residences - - Front Page -

Your FICO score is based on five fac­tors, weighted as fol­lows:

Your pay­ment his­tory: 35 per­cent of your score. Amount of debt you owe: 30 per­cent of your score. Length of your credit his­tory (gen­er­ally, longer is bet­ter): 15 per­cent of your score.

Amount of new credit you re­quest (too many re­quests for credit, es­pe­cially in a rel­a­tively short pe­riod of time, is a neg­a­tive): 10 per­cent of your score.

Types of credit you use: 10 per­cent of your score.
