Credit Score Shangri-La
The 10 cities with the best credit scores in the nation.
For those who like to know exactly how they stack up against their neighbors, a new State of Credit study by the credit scoring experts at Experian is right up your alley. That’s because this year’s study – the sixth of its kind – ranks the top and bottom cities in the nation by credit score.
In general, the study reveals the average national consumer credit score in the U.S. has increased by three points in the last year and by five points since 2013. In other words, overall consumers in the U.S. are taking steps to build better credit and are showing significant credit stability in this post-recession era. Better credit scores typically result in more consumer confidence, increased borrowing and improvement in key financial markets, such as real estate.
