Re: At a stall in my rebuild

With all the cards listed below. Who is it thats reporting this statement. The reason codes dont always match the real deal. You home is paid for. Do you have any installments loans open presently?

Re: At a stall in my rebuild

I've been seeing the "lack of real estate loan" excuse a lot more lately.  Granted, I don't have your profile or your scores and I have a lot of other factors but I'm like "huh?  Not everyone a) chooses to own property or b) owns property but no loan on it.  

 

It doesn't seem fair but like everything in Fico-land -- nothing is really fair. 

 

To OP -- either there is something else pulling you down (which it doesn't look like) OR having a mortgage will become the new gold standard required to achieve even the highest tier of credit.  Short of going out and buying a house (which is stupid -- it isn't like that makes financial sense -- you may either have to declare victory and move on or work the back office numbers HARD)

 

To FireMedic -- I have seen that reason by Synchrony and Chase (Chase was for applying for a savings account -- not even a credit product!)

 

I realize I'm not one to be doling out credit experience so my input is worth what you paid for it (which is zero).  Good luck!

Re: At a stall in my rebuild

You dont need an SSL with an open auto loan. What are the other reasons on the decline letter where this showed up, its never a primary or real reason.

Re: At a stall in my rebuild

Lol I got that as a denial reason from Kohl’s 😂 I have a closed, PIF mortgage in my past too. Apparently if one is not still paying for a house, one has enough spare cash that a Kohl’s CLI is unnecessary...
