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

TU Fico 644/654
From EQ I finally got that Transouth CO/Paid gone it fell from my report finally and got the paid 48 gas bill gone too as well as one medical bill still one to go! Its the only neg thing on my EQ report.
EX and TU still reporting the two medical, at least they are paid in full so off to continue the good will letters, fingers crossed.
