Hi guys!!! I have finally received written approval, I've been waiting for 6 looonngggg months, so I'm excited to get the ball rolling. My mortgage broker pulled scores and the middle score is 638, 2 whopping points shy of the required 640!!
I recently paid off my car loan, so the mortgage broker would like to do a rapid rescore. Do you think I will be able to get the 2 points?
Our closing date is on 9/4 :/

We did it with our loan, it took about 3 days to get the rapid rescore results back. I guess it all depends on what you need to do to get your credit up by two points. What they suggest was going to cost us $2,000.00 and what we did cost us nothing and brought our score up 40 points.

I raised my score from 585 to 641 in less than a month by paying off my CC's! So yes I think you're good.
