TU approved my request for EE on 4 collections/chargeoffs that were set to fall off in the next 2-4 months. Bumped TU score 18 points.

 

Pulled some numbers as a big part of my goal is getting my middle mortgage score above 640 by June for a USDA application.

TU 682 (3/7/15)

EX 656 (2/24/15)

EQ 635 (3/6/15)

 

Very happy - this means I will be able to meet my mortgage score goal. 


Congratulations on your new scores!  Looks like you are where you need to be for your new home.  Keep us informed.  Love to hear success stories.  Good luck!

My first time participating in this, really excited to see if it helps. Recently medically seperated from the military and while I was in I took some terrible loans out that I could not afford and had them fall into collections, but just the other day got ahold of Experian and found out another peoples credit was being reported onto mine as well. I am also disputing a couple of the things. The good news is, that in just 3 days my score went from a 430, to a 486 (still terrible I know) Just opened a secured credit card as well, so heres hoping to being able to get on the right track. Thanks!

Re: March Check In Thread

With two days left in March and a new 15K Venture approval under my belt...I have reached 30% of my goal with my EQ FICO reporting at 704!!!  TU isn't far behind at 698 and EX is still straggling along at 684.

 

Hopefully by May I will have hit 100% of my 700 across the board goal and can update to reach 750.
