The bottom line
Lenders consider many factors in addition to your score when making credit decisions. However, most lenders would consider you to be a very low risk. You may qualify for a variety of loan and credit offers at some of the lowest rates available.
If you’re in the market for credit, this is what you might expect:
- You may be able to obtain high credit limits in your credit card.
- Many lenders may offer you their most attractive interest rates and offers.
- Many lenders may offer you special incentives and rewards that are geared to their most valuable customers.
It is important to understand that your credit score is not the only factor that lenders evaluate when making credit decisions. Different lenders set their own policies and tolerance for risk, and may consider other elements, such as your income, when analyzing your creditworthiness for a particular loan.
