Does anyone have any experience with how much of an improvement I might see after having 5 very recent Medical Bills deleted from my reports?

I had 5 deleted off of my TU report which gave me 12 point increase. The status on them at the time they were removed was iibk though.

When the 1st CA hits your CR, you take a decent hit. Any subsequent CA's hurt, but hurt less. If these are the only 5 CA's on your CR, then you should see a nice bump once they get pulled off. YMMV as always.

It would depend on what else is on your CR. Do you have any other baddies? What type of positive TLs do you have.

Thank you everyone for your comments!
Sadly I have several baddies on my report that I am trying to figure out what is what and how to take care of them. There are two additional medical bills, plus three credit cards (some of which I know shouldn't be there), but the biggest and ugliest are my defaulted SL's that show up on my report 4 x as US of ED and once as the OC, I am currently in a rehab program for this though and should complete the 9 month process in June.
I'm really hoping to get to where I can purchase my first home via FHA by mid summer, does anyone know if this is possible after the rehab program and cleaning up what I can on my report?

Is it possible? Well, before I came here, my credit was in absolute shambles, I couldn't get a pack of gum on credit. But after reading, posting, asking, begging, etc., and most of all, learning. I've figured out how to do everything opposite of how I was before. Yes, it is possible, with some work, you will get a new house.

Thanks Shogun! I'll keep reading/learning and do what I can!
