Would a Dispute be faster?

I paid a collection last week that was on my credit for almost 4 years. It was for $900 and the agreement between myself and the collection agency, it will be completely deleted from my credit now that its paid. With that said, they told me they dont report until close to the end of the month so it may not come off until after July 1st.


With this said, I need to apply for a Mortgage like ASAP because I need to move out of my rental soon.


Would now doing a dispute make it delete faster than waiting on the collection agency??


Any advice?

Re: Would a Dispute be faster?

No one could advocate you dispute a valid credit account as it would be a credit repair violation. Its best to wait for them to do their thing. CRAs dont want these items deleted they want them marked as paid so no reason to tip them off that someone is doing PFDs.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."
