Does the financing prequalification affect my credit score?

When you submit a loan request, our lending partners do a “soft pull” on the credit file. This will not affect your credit score. If you choose to move forward and apply directly with one of our lending partners, that lender will conduct a hard pull which typically has a small effect on credit score, just like applying for any loan would.
