Inquiry Question

I know they say that when shopping a loan the inquiries in the given timeframe are counted as a single inquiry for scoring purposes.  My question is since the CRA's only report the total number of inquiries, is there a way to validate how they are being counted for scoring?

I believe you would look to the type (coding) of inquiry (credit card, finance, auto, mortgage).

"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."

gdale has it right. While I know of no way to VERIFY that your scoring is being adjusted properly, if all those loan inquiries are coded properly as mortgage, auto, etc. then you can ASSUME you're being scored correctly.

Re: Inquiry Question

Thanks!  Of cours I have 7 inquiries from buying a car and they are split between, Finance (3), Credit Union(2), Auto (1) and Credit Card (1).  So not horrible, but definitely not counting as 1.  Not sure it's worth the effort of contact them to try getting them changed.
