What was your AAOA before and what's it now?  Only time can restore AAOA loss but if you were low before which the Credit One account somewhat suggests, you didn't do really any significant damage, couple of months off the clock, no biggy even mid-term.

 

The inquiries will be gone in a year, ain't a big deal you'll be fine.

It shouldn't be too bad of a hit of your AAoA was already low. As Revelate stated within a few months you should start to bounce back, assuming everything else stays in check.

Don't expect quick fixes.  Your AAoA will only recover with time.  However, it's not just AAoA but having new accounts on your reports, inquiries, etc.  Why are you worried abotu your score?  If you just got a mortgage and a number of new accounts you won't be applying for new credit any time soon anyway.

I feel like two countering arguments can be made for those opening up new accounts with a young AAoA verses an old AAoA, and neither is really "right" or "wrong" de[ending on the individual perspective and/or what their goals and outlook are with respect to their profile.

@housejunkie, the only way to speed up getting a good credit score is to dispute negative information on your credit reports and/or ask for such negative info to be removed. If your score is low mainly because you started a bunch of new accounts, it will recover as those accounts age. After 2 years, your score will probably be better than it was when you started.

Nay nay, disputes of inaccurate information fine, but use other methods for addressing legit debts as typically they'll just come back on disputes and they will do strange things with one's score too.
