Re: Rebucketed?! Aargh!

Being re-bucketed is scarier than being late.

Painful short-term, but beneficial long-term. When you've been scratching and clawing for every point, it's a killer to drop down like that, but you have a whole new ceiling now, and it's a higher one. Hang in there!

Re: Rebucketed?! Aargh!

[ Edited ]
'Aargh!' because my husband and I were planning to buy him a work truck & trailer this month- a score dip for any reason is really not what I needed right now... especially one that might dump us into a higher interest rate bracket. I'm figuring that my scores will be the main ones they look at, as I have both the higher and more documentable (i.e., salary/W-2 instead of 1099-contractor) income.

I know it's probably good long-term, but short-term it really stinks! He needs the truck, but now I'm wondering if it's going to happen- talking with the bank, they don't want to finance a 2001 Tahoe + box trailer for more than 36 months due to the age of the truck- and that's without pulling our credit yet...

Hmmm- I wonder if there are any places that would do "business" financing with better terms for an independent contractor?

That's true --the timing is definitely awful for you!
