Will sale of home affect my credit score?

I will be selling my home and moving to a new town shortly.  Over the next 6-12 months, I will be renting while saving up enough for a down payment and rebuilding my credit so that my middle credit score (EX: 687) is over 700.  I was playing around with a score simulator on some website and it showed a loss of points if i no longer had a mortgage.  Can someone please confirm what, if any, impact paying off my mortgage will have on my credit score?

 

Thanks

Hello and welcome.

 

You might lose a few points because scoring likes to see a mix of credit but closed accounts are still factored into that mix and credit mix is only 10% of your total score anyway.

 

It's not something I would personally be concerned about.
