How much does my score go up if I pay most of my loans off?
I applied for a mortgage and was approved. When we found ahome they checked our credit again and it dropped 60pts! The only change was our credit cards were close to max (christmas). I paid off both of them today. How much will it bring up my score if they check it again on Feb. 8th?
