I need help learning what will raise my credit.
I cleared out almost $14,000 of debt recently in order to be approved for a home mortgage. Currently my credit card utilization is only at $1,389 out of a total $35,000 limit (total). I don't understand how my credit score isn't higher. What can I do to raise it?
