Need better score for mortgage
Several months ago, I closed out an older credit card and within a few weeks a loan was also paid off. Otherwise I have good credit. No late payments, delinquencies, etc. Credit cards are next to zero balance as well. I want to do a mortgage, but the short time it is showing for length and history of credit is bringing my score down. Any suggestions?
