Re: What is your post Chap 7 BK Fico?

[ Edited ]

I'm about 9 months post BK. Current score in my signature. My EQ was 587 according to Cap1 but I went on a mini app spree so it tanked a bit. I also didn't find this board until a few weeks ago, so I'd been running my cards close to the limit. I've paid them down to under 50% already. Heading towards under 10% by July.

 

BK Discharged 8/2010

First Premier $750CL opened Jan 2011

Firestone/CFNA $900CL opened Apr 2011

Starting Score: 596 EQ 5-22-11 / 554 TU 5-23-11
Current Score: 615 EQ 08-15-11 / 631 TU 09-27-11

Re: What is your post Chap 7 BK Fico?

Hi,

  Had to file for bk chp 7 in January 2011. Just got it discharged in May 2011. It was the hardest thing I had to do so far. Had perfect credit. Sad to see it in the 500's. As of June 12, 2011 Equifax is at a 611. I hope one day to be back in the 700's +.

  Could I ask what you have done to improve your score and what credit cards you have?

 

Thank you.

Re: What is your post Chap 7 BK Fico?

After filing my score dropped down to a low of 531, and then it's slowly been working it's way back up since.  Since then I've made sure to never miss a payment, and I always pay more then the minimum.  And the past few months I've made sure that my cards are PIF every month.

 

During my CH7, I re-affirmed my auto loan with Citizens Auto Finance, and paid that on-time every month until my loan was paid off in August 2009.

 

Since CH7 BK, I've gotten the following cards:

08/2008 - Capital One unsecured cc - $750 limit (currently $2,000 limit)

09/2008 - Target store card - $200 limit (still only $200 limit)

09/2008 - HSBC unsecured cc - $320 limit (closed back in Jan 2010 - interest & fee too high)

12/2008 - Hooters Card/Merrick bank - $500 limit (currently $1,400 limit)

02/2009 - another Capital One unsecured cc - $500 limit (currently $1,500 limit)

04/2011 - Kohls/Cap1 card - $300 limit

 

I recently also got a new car loan ($21k) at 4.9% through Subaru Finance/Chase. 


Starting Score: 686 EQ (8/9/12), 668 TU (WalMart 8/8/12), 685 EX (3/25/14)
Most Recent Score: 684 EQ (3/26/14), 688 TU (3/25/14), 685 EX (3/25/14)
Goal Score: 700+

Re: What is your post Chap 7 BK Fico?

Ch7 filed 10/2001

 

For me it was an immediate drop to 580, recovered over the next several years to around 680 where it held for 3-4 years...  this last year  it has been stuck at around 702 +/- 5 points.... We will see where this puts me after it falls off in a few months.

Interesting, is that your EQ that stays around 702? I filed roughly the same time and my EQ will not move above 704. Wonder if we are just similar profiles or what.
