Will I automatically get good interest rates if I have a good credit score?


A good credit score is only one factor lenders look at when deciding to lend you money. 

Just because you have a good credit score does not mean the lender will give you the lowest cost loan available.

Other things lenders consider are your credit report, debt, assets, income and savings. Also, rates vary among lenders. You should always shop around to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible, no matter what your credit score.
