Scorewatch Update After Goodwill Letter

I sent a goodwill letter a few weeks ago and received the below uodate on my Scorewatch today. The status went from 120+ days past due to "bad debt; placed for collections".  The description now also states charge off.  Are the changes going to hurt my credit score?  I am hoping to get a mortgage in the next few weeks!

Seems like it should be the same as before.  I don't see any change that should hurt you.

July 2013 score: EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013

Actually, the new reporting is better.  The old one had the status as 120 days past due which would not be good.  The new status shows as a collection.

does that mean that a collection is preferable to a 90 or 120 day past due?

No, I'm saying that a collection can't report as current status of 120 past due, it has to report as a collection.  It can report as worst delinquency was 120 past due.

I've seen no impact to my score since the change was made.
