We have often mentioned that all-important debt to available credit ratio and how important it is for a high credit score. Here is a visual to help you see just what effect it can have on your credit score.

? 0-30%: Optimal borrower (however, we recommend going no higher than 15-20% just to have a cushion)
? 30-50%-Low risk.
? 50-70% -Moderate risk
? 70-100%- Extreme risk
