WHICH WOULD INCREASE YOUR SCORE MORE??

Which of these would increase your score and look better to lenders pulling your report as well:

On report now:  1 Paid CO

                             5 Paid CA

 

Would getting the Paid CO deleted increase your score more or getting the 5 paid CA deleted?

 

On average by how much on each scenario??

Getting the 5 CA deleted would have the better impact.  It is hard to say how much.  There are too many factors in scoring to determine that.  But, the newer the collection the bigger impact on your score.

Its got to look better to lenders any way I believe/ I know if i was a lender I would look more favorable towards 1 CO paid than 5 CO Paid. 1 mistake VS 5..

Getting the most recent derogatory information removed would help the score

Re: WHICH WOULD INCREASE YOUR SCORE MORE??

I had over 14 collections and saw improvement only when the most recent was removed, and then when the last was removed. When I got my lates on an auto removed, I saw 53 points, the biggest jump ever. You will have to get all five removed, i think, to see anything, and it still won't be that great bc you still have the charge off. Good Luck.

Re: WHICH WOULD INCREASE YOUR SCORE MORE??

   I would say the answer to that depends a lot on the dates involved. Effects of things on your report vary a lot by date. 4 years is a big inflection point as is 6 months, or 2 years... As someone else said, the most recent things count the most.
