SO CONFUSED: A 30 point drop for removing this dispute comment??
[ Edited ]

Hi everyone...this is my first post. I have a bit of a dilemma. My wife and I are trying to qualify for a home loan. My scores were 710, 706 and 700 with Equifax being the mid score at 706. The underwriter came back and questioned one old credit card that I had disputed (shown below). I honestly didn’t even realize it was still listed as open on Equifax. It is closed on Experian and TransUnion. Anyhow, I contacted Equifax and had the dispute removed. My credit score dropped 29 points instantly…any idea why? Would letting them know it is closed help?
