    Mortgages are long-term loans that can immensely benefit your credit score. It improves the length of your credit history which makes up 15% of your FICO® Score. The only time a mortgage may hurt your credit score is when you open a new mortgage account and if you fail to make on-time payments.

    Since mortgages are often a decades-long commitment, on-time payments contribute significantly to the 35% payment history factor of your FICO score. It also helps bring variety to the types of credit accounts you manage, which make up 10% of the FICO score.

    The number of points by which your credit score is raised depends on other factors as well.
