Currently at 570 need to be at 660-680
Trying to buy a house. Still have $11000 worth of debt. If I only pay off half or so would the remaining effect me getting a house? Don't really know how to go about cleaning up my credit when most of it has been there for over 5 years.

Any old debt that you are going to pay, try to get a "pay for delete" agreement from them prior to payment, simply paying debt does not remove it from your reports. Do some serious research on credit before you proceed with anything, you could make a ton of costly mistakes if you do not know exactly what you are doing.
