    • Fair Credit: 650-699
    • Poor Credit: 600-649
  • Try to get your credit card balances below 40% of the limit.
  • It’s best to have at least 3 open and active accounts listed on your credit report.

2) If you’re renting, pay by check.

  • Have documented proof of your last 12 months of payments if often required by the lender

3) Obtain proof of employment for the last 2 years.

  • W-2’s and tax returns
  • Paystubs covering 30 days
