Re: credit score 567 need 700 by 9/2020

As far as your collections go you could try pay for delete or goodwill deletions. I'm not too familiar with this myself but there is a subsection of this forum called rebuilding, the people there could probably help on how to go about the pay for delete and goodwill deletions I just mentioned. Here is a link to an article from credit.com on the subject also.

You also mentioned you're applying for a mortgage in 12/2020. Like the rebuilding forum there is a mortgage forum, you can go there to ask the best way to do it. One method I have read about is the AZEO method, here is a link to explain it.

If you just pay them off (rather than get them to remove them from your credit reports), you're not going to see much (if any) benefit to your score. The reason is that the derogatory mark is still on your credit, and that is the main thing.

 

There's another issue. If you start paying (or do anything else related to those debts), you reset the clock on the collection. So if they're old and nearing the poing where they'll fall of your report, you may not want to do anything, and you probably don't want to start making payments.

We would need to know a couple of things to even take an educated guess (and even then, it would be tough). How old your collections are, and what your credit limits are on your current cards (which will tell us how much of your credit you're using).

 

Another question: Are those your FICO morgage scores, or your FICO 8 scores? (The FICO 8 is the one most people talk able, while each CB has a score that's specific to morgages, which may be a fair amount different from your FICO 8).

Hi @credit69, your duplicate threads have been removed and/or merged.  Please avoid cross-posting in the future; it's confusing to follow and is against the guidelines here.
