My balance for my car is 11k- I am considering pay half off now to increase my score
On my credit report my car loan is 11k, and 2 cards all paid on time. My score is 600- I would love for it to increase aleast 50 points. I have been saving to pay off my car which I have had for 2yrs. I would like to pay half now and the other half later. Do you know if I pay half now- it can increase my score? Or will my score remind the same?
