Thanks to everyone here who gave me advice.

In the spring time I was working on building up my credit to get the best possible interest rate on a new home My wife and I are going to buy. On April 15th my TransUnion score was 672 my TransUnion score has increased to 692 as of 9/25!!! I achieved this only by reducing my credit balances to below 10%. I still have alot more work to do as I would like to be over 700 at the time I start the mortgage on my home. Thanks for the tips everyone. 


Starting Score: 673
Current Score: , FICO TU 692 9/2011

Congrats on the increased score! I'm hoping to be in the upper 600s by the end of the year (and 720 by April of next year). 

 

Keep up the good work. Smiley Happy
