Hi all...just discovered this forum, although used this site for months.
Using the FICO simulator, it suggested paying down $797. of my current credit cards(That is may total balance), that would have the biggest positive increase on my score....
would you suggest using my Home Equity loan to pay this & obtain a zero balance or just pay it of in the next 2-3 months? I'm looking for the quickest increase....

Is your HELOC reporting as revolving or installment? Payment down revolving debt will have the greatest impact on your scores.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO.
