We were preapproved!

I know it's a small step... But I never even thought we would get this far in less than a year! Our scores went from 566 and 559 in December to 642 and 634.. I'm ecstatic..... Now to house hunt for a builder spec home that's been sitting for awhile! Thanks MyFico fam... I'll be back soon with more questions I'm sure.

Starting Score: 620

Re: We were preapproved!

Congratulations.  I'm in the same boat, kind of.  I'm currently hoping to get my score up to get preapproved for a home as well.  Your success makes me hope the beginning of the end is right around the corner.

Starting: EQ 590 (LP 8/12) TU 589 (LP 8/12) EX 612 (LP 8/12)
Current: EQ 650(LP 9/12/12) TU 667 (LP 9/12/12) EX 676 (LP 9/12/12)
Goal: 620 (for VA Mortgage)
Goal Reached. Pre-qualified for VA loan, 9/12/12

My Jeep is like my wife. Cleans up nice, but a lot more fun when she's dirty.
