Older the better.

Re: Length of Credit History

MyFICO flags any credit history length less than 1 year as a factor that is hurting your score. After my history aged to 1 year, the red flag went away and my scores all went up about 10 points each.

Starting Score: EQ 773, TU 766
Current Score (2/25/2017): EX 813, EQ 823, TU 818
Goal Score: 800
