2. Debt- The amount of debt you have impacts your credit score more than many consumers realize, your mortgage and auto loans are include in this factor but your credit card debt is really the most important.  The balances you carry versus your available credit, is your revolving utilization rate. This is 30% of your credit score.  

3.  Age- Older you get more points you will score in the category.  Never close old establish credit cards. This will shorten the length of your credit history and in turn cost  mix is 3-5 revolving accounts (credit cards) and 1-2 installment account (auto mortgage) This is 10% of the factor of your credit score.
