The scores were pulled on the same date, but the difference in score is 27 points.
The Credit Karma site uses a “Vantage 3.0” scoring model, the Equifax site uses an “Equifax Credit Score™”.
If you are applying for a mortgage or auto loan, most banks in the U.S. use a “FICO” score to approve your loan. The credit scores on Credit Karma and Equifax.com are not a FICO score. The only site on the internet that will sell you a “Mortgage FICO score” or an “Auto loan FICO score” is http://www.myfico.com .
