Good morning everyone.
Just a general update and hopefully an inspiration to others on credit growth gardening.
If I can grow my score...anyone can!!!
As you can see by the scores below, I was a mess when I first found this website. But by reading and asking questions I began to understand how to up my scores and keep them there.
With hard work and information from this site, I have been able to 1)raise my scores....2) Actually have a Mortgage for 465,000 (VA loan)....3) New car loan (14,5000).....all within 2 years.
I got the below scores this morning.... and was very happy with the numbers :-).
I still have some old derog marks (lates) that will fall off completely in 11 months...(prob not pulling my score down at this point but at least I wont have to look at them EVER again :-).
So keep up the good hard work!!!!!!!!!! You can do it!!!!! And good luck.

650 is "a mess"?
Back in my credit dark days, I would have said the same about a 560 so it is all a mater of prospective. Never give up and every single person here can improve their score. I did so you can too. I promise that.
