Need a little more information.

 

How many CC's do you have?

Do you have any baddies?

If only that baddie could go away....

 

Just show a $10 balance on that CC. Anything between 1 and 9% is optimal, but not sure if that is going to give you a boost big enough.

You can have your lender do a rapid rescore... Pay down your CC balance to 0 or $2.00, have the lender do a rapid rescore...

 

Also, do send a few GW letters to Cap1. I had success with them removing a CO from 2006/7-ish... Do a search and find the emails to the exec's at Cap1, that usually gets a quick response...

 

Also, do you need above 640 for a rate or do you need it for your mortgage in general? Most lenders only require a 620...

Starting Score: 06/2010- EQ 464
01/2012-EQ 512
April Score: EQ 679 4/12TU- 677 EX- 699 (FAKO)
Current Score: 05/2012-EQ 691 4/12TU- 706 EX- 720(FAKO)
Goal Score: 700 by 05/2012- MADE IT!!!!
