Does an additional paid TL give immediate impact to ones FICO or not?RobI refinanced in Feb 2007 i got about a 10 point boost, cause it showed as just another paid off installment. But the second installment i got a month later I paid that off myself, so it was 2 paid installment loans over the course of 2 months, so actually it was more of a 20 point boost went from 685 to like 705 but my scores have improved pretty well since then. So look for a boost but nothing like a boost resulting from lowering your UTIL 1-9% on revolving accounts, as im sure you've heard that millions of times already.
