The Difference Between Hard and Soft Inquiries
Hard Inquiries and Their Impact
Hard inquiries have a relatively small impact on your credit score. They usually only cause a drop of a few points. However, having multiple hard inquiries in a short period can signal to potential lenders that you are seeking credit aggressively, which could make you appear to be a higher risk.
Soft Inquiries and Why They Matter
Soft inquiries, on the other hand, provide a snapshot of your credit history without impacting your credit score. They are not visible to other lenders, so they won’t negatively affect your ability to obtain credit in the future. Soft inquiries can also help you monitor your credit health and stay informed about any potential changes in your credit report.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
Regardless of the outcome of your application with MicroBilt, the hard inquiry will stay on your credit report for up to 2 years. Every time you initiate an inquiry, it can be documented by one or more of the three primary credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.
Addressing Unauthorized Inquiries on Your Credit Report
If you come across a credit inquiry on your report that seems unfamiliar, or if you’re certain you did not initiate the inquiry, address it promptly. Reach out to MicroBilt directly for more information. You will find the name of the creditor associated with this inquiry in the “Hard Inquiries” section of your consumer credit report.
