Subject:  Do pre-approval credit checks affect FICO? Date:  10/16/2005  6:43 PM

I am looking to move in ~6-9mo and was thinking of getting pre-approved with a lender to see what I am approved for now. I would like to get pre-approved to get a better idea of what I can expect to get, however, since I am not looking to move for 6-9mo if I get another credit check (pre-approval process) again closer to when I move will this check I get now affect my credit? Obviously, I want to do all I can to keep my FICO score of 786 in good shape. Thanks for any thoughts!-Chris
