Need help with raising my score

Hello All,

 

I am new on here and i am struggling just to get my mid-score up to 640 I have done everything i have been asked to do from my credit repair company. I have even paid off a tax lien which was released and my score only went 2 points. I am getting a mortgage loan and I am so frustated.

 

Equifax is 645, transunion is 605 and experian is 584... I have paid all my 4 credit cards down to 6% this week. Hoping it will help. All I need is 35 points for the loan.

Please help!

Where was your CC utilization reporting when you last pulled your scores?

 

Do you have any other baddies reporting?

I'd focus on the baddies. You might see a few more points with the improved util.
