Started in these forums with FICO 8 scores at 575 only 6 months ago. Had to get scores up for a Mortgage loan. Had 2 collections, 2 accounts closed with balances. Paid both closed accounts, removed 1 collection and brought score up 95 points!
Closed on the house Thursday. Mortgage filed on Friday and got the following approvals this weekend:
AMEX BCE: $500
Lowes: $300 (Called and CLI'd it immediately to $5000)
THANK YOU ALL FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!
Congratulations on getting your scores up and on your new home!
That's fantastic! Yay you!
