Your credit score is typically determined by six main factors: Payment History, Credit Card Use, Credit Age, Derogatory Marks, Hard Inquiries, and Total Accounts.
Payment History: The percentage of payments that have been submitted on time
Credit Card Use: The amount of credit you’re using compared to your total credit limit(s)
Credit Age: The average age of your open accounts
Derogatory Marks: Negative events that show up on your credit report (tax liens, bankruptcies, etc)
Hard Inquiries: The amount of times you’ve applied for credit
Total Accounts: The average age of your open accounts
