The most widely used credit score system is the FICO score, the credit score created by Fair Isaac Corporation.  The base FICO scores have a 300-850 score range.   The higher the score will typically get you the better interest rate.

What typically influences your credit score is credit card debt and the limit.  For example if you credit card has a 10k limit and your balance is 9,900.00, this can affect your credit score.

Other influences that affect credit scores is how many times time your credit has been pulled.  It is minimal however, but don’t have your credit pulled too many times during the loan process.   Others are how old your credit lines have been established, and liens, etc..  Bottom line, as long as you make your payments on time, your credit score should be relatively healthy.
