Re: Question about paying off/closing installment loan

If you have the ability, pay it off early. On top of saving interest, it will look very good on your credit report being paid off several months in advance. It may not increase your score tht much, ymmv. Congrats, quite a milestone!

Starting scores 01/02/2012 EQ 707(Fico) TU 733(Fico) EXP 735 (FAKO)
Updated scores 06/01/2014 EQ 797(Fico) TU 768(Fico) EXP 769 (Fico), EQ 849 (Next Gen 5/27/14 Penfed)


Remember the Three P's: Pay early in Full, Pay on Time, Patience
