banker says closing accts good for score?
I am in the process of refinancing my house. One of the stipulations of the lender is that I pay off and CLOSE all accounts including several credit cards and an auto loan. My score is 697 according CreditKarma (645 according to banker). I am not sure if this is good advise. But wanted to pull some extra cash out of home to do some repairs that are necessary and yes, pay off some debt... but close everything??????
