As you pay the loan down over time, your utilization on that account will continue to improve over the period of the loan.It's also worth noting that installment utilization only includes non-mortgage accounts.I guess its just scored on a lesser scale right?If by "lesser scale" you mean it's not as important as revolving utilization, then yes.I mean, its not the biggest part of the scoring, correct?
