I would not recommend closing any of your CC accounts that you pay off. You'll most likely get dinged for lowering your overall utilization with any accounts closed.

Then I'd close those two accounts and leave the other two open. Take the $2000 (out of your $10K) and stick that in the bank. When you apply for credit they will ask about checking / savings accounts and balances anyway.You could use the $2K to help with a downpayment or for additional expenses after you get a home. Have you looked into any zero down homes or new homeowner programs?Good luck,FICOnater2007
