How will it affect my credit score if I get a new personal loan to pay off my credit card debt?
I will be looking to buy a house in 6 months so I'm trying to improve my credit score. I know paying off credit card debt can improve my credit score, but what if I get a personal loan in order to pay off the credit card debt? Will my score go down because I'm adding another loan?
