Re: Plan of attack for financing

How many credit cards do you have that you are paying as agreed? Any auto and/or student loans?

My builder's lender (UAMC) required a 660.

Re: Plan of attack for financing

If you had no other baddies, I think it would be a go. But since you have something from 2007 still holding you down, id say its a big maybe.

 

Any idea why your TU is sooo high but the other 2 are so low.

Re: Plan of attack for financing

I thought that was weird too that my TU is so high. EQ is the only one with a collection left so I get why it is lower. EQ has the most inquiries from a year ago, apt apps and utilities app all pulled EQ or EX so maybe it's inquiries. By March those fall off score.

Re: Plan of attack for financing

Highly unlikely its the INQs, I have a crap ton and my scores are pretty good. Maybe it is the last collection.

 

Will be cool to see what your EQ score does when it comes off.

But did you have any other baddies on your report.

Re: Plan of attack for financing

Bring down UTIL first.

Debt will play a big part in approval once your scores reach their minimum requirement.
Good Luck
May all your dreams and wishes become a reality!
