Re: Will paying down installment loans raise my credit score?

Shogan, care to venture a guess on how much it will raise my score? Currently my revolving credit is "over drafted" by 1,980.00 dollars.

Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+

THAT IS WHAT I WANT TO HEAR! I think by getting myself added to some high limit low balance credit cards I can easily get myself to the 620 to qualify for a home loan I need in 30-60days!
