You might find yourself wondering what the difference between a hard and soft credit check is. Our finance team has pulled information together to show you what each does and how they can impact your credit score. Check out some information below!

What is a Hard Pull on Your Credit Score?

A hard credit check, or pull, occurs when a lender reviews your credit report as part of the decision-making process. With this type of inquiry, you'll find the check appears on your credit report, and it can also influence your credit score. Typically, you'll find that these occur most often when taking a look at mortgages, auto loans, or credit cards, but they do need your permission to do so. They are usually tied to an actual credit application, which is why they can affect your credit scores.

What is a Soft Pull on Your Credit Score?

A soft credit check, or pull, occurs when you check your credit report or give permission to review your credit report. These often occur when businesses pre-approve you for offers. The largest benefit to a soft pull is that they don't affect your credit score because they aren't considered to be a factor in credit-scoring models. Potential lenders won't be able to see them, either, which is why our dealership prefers to use soft pulls during the pre-approval process.

Why Do We Use Soft Pulls Over Hard Pulls?

With a soft pull, we won't have any kind of negative impact on your credit score. If you were to work with a dealership that only had hard pulls, this could potentially damage your chances to get a mortgage approved for a new house. A soft pull won't have the same impact, and you'll be safe knowing that you can get pre-approved without the same impact!
