Average Age of Accounts Score Improvement
I have a low score for average age of accounts. Another part of the same section says 'average age of open accounts'. I have plenty of old accounts. If I have a couple of accounts that were opened in the past 12 months that I don't use or need anymore, would it help if I closed them ? That should push up the average age of open accounts if open accounts is truly the metric ?
thanks for your help with this
