Impact of paying off HELOC?
I'm on the verge of paying off a HELOC that they won't let me borrow against anymore (due to drop in home equity during the recession). What will happen to my credit scores when this account is paid off and closed? The account represents a significant portion of my "available credit" (even though it isn't available).

P.S. It would be great if things like this were available on the credit score estimator tool.
