Avg age lower by 3 years. How many points lost?

I dropped my average from 9 years to 6 years. I hadn't been monitoring my scores at the time. Can anyone guestimate my score before the drop assuming all other factors were the same. Thanks.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

My score last year right after the average age drop was 700 with new accounts over 2 months. I know now that 30 points was for inqs and 10 points for new accounts. So probably my score before was 740 but a 740 3 years older would be I don't know. :smileyhappy: Thanks for guessing.

A change in average-age from 9 to 6 years shouldn't be that bad. Even with an average-age of 6 years, you are still boderline FICO score high achiever with this one criteria. I would guess, and this is only a guess, less than a 15 point drop in scores.

It's getting hard for me to gain points. 3-4 points even is a lot to me these days. To me 15 points is a huge number. lol. :smileyhappy:
