Congrats on the new home Yay

UTL is a little high if you can pay it down to 10% I think you should be good for both before home reports on CR

pay them down and let your score go up.  your mortgage probably won't report for 2-6 months either.  

Scores by lender CLI requests 4/15/14: EQ 760 / TU 755 / EX

Scores by lender 4/25/11: EQ 705 / EX 743 / TU 735

To expand on this a litte; if someone doesn't have much (call it less than 2 tradelines) installment history on their credit report, a mortgage may provide a boost to one's FICO even though it's a new account based on the mix-of-credit function.

 

In my case, where I have a personal loan, and two auto loan tradelines, one won't get that benefit; at best in my case it'll be neutral to my score (I have plenty of installment loans on file now, and my AAoA is so short it's irrelevant); however, I'll take a hit for the inquiries at that point with my own theoretical mortgage.

 

 

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 700, TU 04 731, EX 98 725 (05/24/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)
