Refinance and balance transfer hurt my score?
I recently refinanced my home to eliminate a home equity line that was maxed out and also transferred my credit card to a new card that has 0% interest. It seems because of this my score has dropped from 775 to 748. Now I am no longer in the excellent rating. I thought that these would be positive steps for my overall credit. What happened here?
