It means that a creditor has requested to look at your credit file to determine how much risk you pose as a borrower. Hard inquiries show up on your credit report and can affect your credit score.
Skybound: It is a hard hit to apply through Skybound.
Climb: It is not a hard hit to apply through Climb. A hard hit will occur once the loan is funded though.
