Where will you be in four years?

The title asks the question. 

 

Got plans?

In terms of credit, or in general?

Re: Where will you be in four years?

I'll play.

 

In four years:

Hopefully married with at least one kid and trying for a second.

Have a mortgage in a school district that doesn't suck.

 

Creditwise:

720 FICO, may be a stretch as I still have some paid negatives that won't be gone by 2016.

Amex BCP

US Bank Cash+

Likely either Chase CSP or BOFA Travel Rewards Preferred

Some USAA card, primarly for limit and balance floating

May keep the Zync that long, if Amex lets me.  Removing balance from FICO '04 calc for the complete win.

Possibly some other card to round out my portfolio depending how often I still continue to eat out (betting kinda rarely).  

 

This all presumes that there is no changes in rewards in the industry (yeah right), but if I were four years ahead right now, that's what my target would be.

Re: Where will you be in four years?

My BK was discharged the beginning of '10, 9 months later, two credit cards, one of them secured, $700. total credit line. Jump ahead one year, 3 cards, about $1500. in available credit and a high interest auto loan. Now, 8 cards, total credit line getting close to $10k, still have the auto loan (needs to be refinanced). By this time next year, I'd like to have about $15k in available credit (maybe more), getting into prime cards and the auto loan refinanced. Four year from now, hopefully what happened to me when the economy took a dive is just a story that I tell while sitting around with buddies once in awhile. I doubt I'll be back where I was before unless I come up with another good business idea. But I hope to not have to wonder if I'll be approved for credit when I want/need it. Maybe even a new mortgage.

 

Time heals old wounds and credit as long as you take care of them!

Answer: not a freaking clue. The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. And leave us with naught but grief and pain instead of promised joy.

Re: Where will you be in four years?

I will be 25.

 

Goals:                                                                                                                 Progress:

Own at least 1 positive income investment home.                                    $9k for the down payment and closing costs.

Have at least a BA degree with no student loans.                                     Completed about 110 credits.

$50,000 in a diversified investment portfolio                                              $30,000 Mutual funds, P2P loans, precious metals

Get current car paid off then get a different car with my own cash.        Borrowed $15k from a relative and still owe them $3,900.

$250,000 in revolving credit limits with utilization between 1-4%.          Up to about $20,000 longs ways to go.

Good stable credit score near 800                                                               Fluctuates rapidly but settles between 720-730

Re: Where will you be in four years?

In general? I'll probably be doing the same thing I'm doing now, as I'm quite happy with where I'm at and how things are progressing.

 

Credit-wise? Who knows, products come and go so often these days. 4 years ago nobody had ever heard about the CSP. Now plenty of people want it, and I'm sure in 4 years time there will be something else that everyone wants.

Re: Where will you be in four years?

Making any big decisions like house purchases? Got any investment goals in mind?
