Mortgage Banker, Mr. Jason M. Ruedy, also known as The Home Loan Arranger, redacts a statement made in a press release issued on February 24, 2015 regarding whether a person's credit score will absolutely not be affected by shopping around for a mortgage.

In the press release Mortgage Banker, Mr. Jason M. Ruedy, Affirms "Your Credit Score Will Not Take a Hit as a Result of Shopping for a Mortgage", Mr. Ruedy states that "it will not damage a person's credit score to shop around for the best possible mortgage - even if multiple credit checks are necessary."

As referenced in Mr. Ruedy's February 24, 2015 press release, according to an article published on NYTimes.com on January 30, 2015 entitled Mortgage Shopping and Credit Scores, "Borrowers need not avoid shopping around for the best mortgage deal out of fear that allowing multiple lenders to “pull,” or check, their credit will chip away at their score. The notion that a flurry of credit inquiries from mortgage lenders will lower a borrower’s score is a common misconception, experts say. The truth is that five inquiries are likely to have no more impact than one, provided they are made within a compressed period of time."

"I realized after my February 24, 2015 press release was issued that the words "will not damage a person's credit score" were too definitive. In reality, if a person seeks multiple inquiries - all within a period of 45 days - the inquiries should be considered as one inquiry by the credit reporting agencies. But if multiple inquiries are made over a period of time lasting longer than 45 days, there is a possibility that the extended period of shopping could have an impact on a person's score, albeit probably minimal." - Jason M. Ruedy,

Mr. Ruedy reiterates that credit checks completed by mortgage companies should not be seen as the same as credit checks from credit card companies - and the inquiries should not have the same potential for a negative impact on a person's credit score.

"I still believe that worrying about a credit check by a mortgage company is not a reason to not consider purchasing a home or financing. I just want to clarify that mortgage-related credit checks should be the least risky to your credit score when all inquiries are completed within a 45-day timeframe. - Jason M. Ruedy, The Home Loan Arranger

According to Mr. Ruedy, the best course of action is to seek the advice of a trusted mortgage banker or mortgage broker if you have questions or concerns about how mortgage shopping may affect your credit score.
