Why has my credit score plummeted after selling our house and paying off a credit card?
We recently sold our home and paid off a credit card which I thought would actually improve our score. Instead our score had dropped by more than 50pts. In the last 45 days. What am I missing? And how do I get it back to at least where it was so I can buy another home?
Any help would be great!
