    After being divorced five years.now, and living in an apt. I decided to see if I can qualify for a home loan.on my own. Nothing expensive, but something where I can start a new life and feeling secure to know I own an assest. In 2010 I went to my bank to attempt to get pre-approved., When the bank lenderaccepted all required information it was then sent to the three Credit Bureaus.,Around 2 weeks later I receive a letter from CREDCo stating my loan was DENIED..Because EQUIFAX said I only had one acct. This I do not understand,If Bank Lender contacted all three credit agencies.. Why did just EQUIFAX just do an inquiry? What about Trans-Union and Experian? My credit score was "GOOD" for lenders.And I was going to put down a sibstantial down payment. I feel EQUIFAX is reponsible for me not getting pre-approved. Please Explain?

    Hi Toni, thanks for reading and commenting. You might want to take a look at the credit blog that was posted yesterday: Why Is the Credit Score My Lender Calculated Different from My Equifax Score?
    (http://credit.equifax.com/2011/01/why-is-credit-score-my-lender.html)

    Hope this helps answer some of your questions.
