Re: Ficos in low 6's

I would suggest applying for a capital one platinum, and a kays card. They are easy to get and will help get your scores up. Thats one part of the equation. I think you will have difficulty getting approved with an unpaid charge off that high. I think you need to get that squared away one way or the other.

Re: Ficos in low 6's

Walmart is another easy one. Our TU Fico on here was 590- I took a chance and apped at Walmart.com. The same week I got a lender TU Fico of 619. So for us, TU 04 was more favorable than TU 98. Furthermore, after opening the walmart card and being approved for a 600CL, the TU Fico reported by walmart (you get this for free with their card on your Estatement) is now 634. So we got a nice bump from opening that card. EQ also jumped up 7 points from getting the Walmart card. Also, have you checked with other lenders? Some only require 580 if you are going FHA (3.5% down payment). 


Starting Score: EQ 416 TU 498 EX 468 Lender Fico's July 2012
Current Score: EQ 548 (Myfico) TU 655 (Walmart) CK 672 EX?? CS 642
Goal Score: For now: 640s

Re: Ficos in low 6's

Does anyone know what FHA scoring method is used?  Would that be more favorable?  I still have a little time .

 

I got denied from Walmart but I had 3 more collections on my credit report than I do now.  The inquiries are killing me I have 9.  Two months ago I applied for everything I thought I could get qualified for.


I DID get a phone from Verizon with no money down though, that was the first in a long time.

 

Does walmart use Transunions score or a fico?



Starting Score:
August Equifax 558 TU 600 EX 570
Current Score: Equifax FICO 642 TU FICO662 EX 651 (credit.com) 06/21/2013
Goal Score: 720 All Across
