Re: How are your Inquiries looking?

I have 6 now. I think that's a lot, but I tend to think that all creditors eyes watch me for screw ups.

Re: How are your Inquiries looking?

I'm not sure why the OP elected to omit inquiries older than one year. Maybe he/she will share that reason. Even though it is popular belief that Inquiries have no bearing on your FICO score after a year, creditors can still see the inquiries and factor them into credit decisions. I think its smart to keep a handle on inquiries no matter how old they are.


On to the question..... Eq = 1, Ex = 0 Tu = 0   May burn another next summer on a BCE. Hopefully that will be an Ex pull.

Curious how others inquiries are looking.  Here are mine (I'm not including any inquiry that is more than a year old):


4 - TU, 7 EQ and 4 EX (total 15 inquiries)


Come March 2013 I'll be 4 TU, 6 EQ and 3 EX

Come June 2013 I'll be 2 TU, 4 EQ and 2 EX. (Target for refi) (total 8 inquiries)


Edit: Oh and I hate the fact that 3/15 inquiries or 20% of my total are all due to me acquiring a Cap1 secured card.

Re: How are your Inquiries looking?

I only have 1 EX and 2 EQ that are over a year and they will be off reports by March. They main reason is that by March, my earliest refi date, they will be gone. Given the small number of they and the fact they no longer hurt my score, I decided to not list them. I have a full grasp of what is on my reports.

Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)
Goal Score: 750
