My FICO score is currently 723 but I have not gotten my credit scores from the big 3 in quite awhile.

If this is the FICO where the highest is 850, it is a good score. You don't need to order any additional scores.

I would say that it's actually an 'okay' score. 720 and above used to be an 'excellent' score that would get you the best rates. Now to get the best rates, you usually need around 740 - 760. So I guess it depends on what you mean by a 'good' score. If it's the score that will get you the best rates, 723 probably isn't it. If it's the score that will get you approved for most credit, but may not get you the best rates, then 723 is probably a 'good' score.
