I have only 1 cc, it's maxed. If I pay it off in the next 30 days. How much can my score jump?
I have a score of 660. Presently I have only 1 credit card which I owe $1600, which my limit is $1700.
My in-laws are offering me the $1600 to pay off the credit card. We're trying to purchase a home and was told to get the score as close to 700 as quickly as possible. Therefore, if we pay off this credit card in full. How much can we expect the credit score to jump?
