Okay its been a good few months ,


on May 31st we put an offer in on our first house in 18yrs, we were preapproved through USDA, house was a short sale


on July 31 st banks-- two lenders ( lein holders)-- both accpeted our offer


August 14 th--started Mortgage Lenders underwriting


Sept 28th CLOSED on our house at 3.25 percent with Fico of 760!


We only had the one trade line of Capital one secured- never late less than 2 percent ulti rate for past 6 months.


Got into house and figured now was a good time to try to get two unsecured good trade lines going (keeping in mind not using them --keeping the less than 7 percent ulti in mind) 


Applied for two and got two


Chase Thankyou card for 1700

Citi card--4500


Not alot but lightyears away from where I started and it is thanks to everyone on this forum for all the helpful advice. Now I am just gonna sit and things for a year make the on time payment then have a look at getting that fico even higher :smileyhappy:


Thanks to Everyone you all have made a big difference in how I view credit and taught me alot :smileyhappy:
