Credit scores range from 300 to 850. Generally, a 680 credit score or above is considered a good credit score, while any score above 750 is considered excellent. But what is generally considered an average credit score? Answering this question may be difficult. Every expert, credit bureau, and loan officer has a different opinion as to where the threshold between good credit and poor credit is. Your score may be considered bad by one loan agency, but acceptable by another. Higher is better however, and increases the likelihood of approval and getting better interest rates and conditions.
