Re: Will I see much of jump? **update**

Just an update since my last post:


I paid my cc down to $163.00 ($1000.00 limit) previous month balance was $642.00.  My TU score went from 561 to 593.... just wish I could get out of the 500's!!  I am trying so hard to get to 620 so that I will qualify for a FHA loan!  EQ, hasn't shown any change yet (572)..


If I pay down my unsecured loan ($2400.00) would that help any??  Most of all I want to say thanks to all who reply or even read my post!!
