Re: Dirt Bike Loan

Installment loans do not have a big impact on scores unless it is a mortgage.

It is possible you may lose points once its paid off. Your mix of credit will end which is part of the scoring process.

But some have noted a small increase. So YMMV depending on whats on your reports at that time.
Good Luck
May all your dreams and wishes become a reality!

Re: Dirt Bike Loan

Paying ahead of term usually gives you a small score boost. I can vouche for that.

Re: Dirt Bike Loan

So your saying by paying the full terms will give me a bigger score boost?

Re: Dirt Bike Loan

Pay it off early, save  yourself some money in interest.  The account will sit there for 10 years from the date it was paid off and add to your AAoA.
