LightStream only approves good-to-excellent credit profiles.
Our process looks beyond an individual's FICO® score to closely examine their entire credit profile. We require a good-to-excellent FICO score as a qualifier to be reviewed. However, a high FICO score does not necessarily mean applicants will be approved.
Given the unique nature of each individual's credit profile, we believe there is no single definition for "good credit".
We find that individuals with good credit usually share the following characteristics:
Finally, it should be noted again that each individual profile is different and that we make our credit decision based on the specific reporting of the individual’s current profile.
Ultimately, our determination of good credit is based on whether we conclude that there is a high likelihood our loan will be repaid in a complete, timely manner.
Note for co-applicants: We equally review each party on the application as each individual is equally responsible for the loan.
