Mortgage Hard Inquries and its impact

Hi all,

i have applied for mortgage twice, by the same lender. Had to cancel the first application for mortgage 20 days prior to closing due to its location. Anyways.. i applied for mortgage again on a new construction loan on a different lot.

These would be treated as four inquires on your credit report. If the inquires were within a 30 day period they wouldf be treated as one inquiry by FICO.  This unique to Auto, Mortages and Student loans there maybe one catagory I am missing.

The credit inquiry in August won't hurt you until you app for something else after the mortgage is closed on.
