Best way to go about handling accounts in collections?
Im hoping to buy a house with the near future(about 5 years). My 2 open credit accounts are current and have 0 balances. My problem is i have 4 credit accounts that have been written off and sold to collection agencies. They are scheduled to come off the report in 2020. If my goal is to buy a house, should i pay off these accounts or let them slide off?
