score or no score change

Paid-off my personal loan as well as my motorcycle loan, and can not recall how that MAY or may NOT affect my score.

should i take out another personal loan to show FICO a mix of credit, or do the closed TLs do that regardless?

Re: score or no score change

Current paid off loans look good. Give it some time. What other items may be holding you back?

I don't think you need another installment.  Do you have any other installment loans?  Mortgage?  Car loan?

No.  Now I'll just show 4 total installment loans.  1 through a Florida CU that turned intot he repo in 08, and 3 local CU installment loans - now paid-in-full.
