    • New debt temporarily decreases a score.
    • Balances should be kept below 50% at all times to maintain a score.
    • Balances should be kept below 30% of the limit for 3-6 months prior to applying for a home loan.
    • Debt should NOT be consolidated, it should be distributed evenly over all credit card accounts.

    • Hard vs. soft Inquiries.
    • 14-day window for pulling reports.
    • Inquiries affect a score for one year.
    • Inquiries can cost between 2 and 30 points, depending on the current score.
    • Pre-approved card offers are NOT really pre-approved.
  • 14. BORROWERS NEED TO WORK ON OPTIMIZING THEIR CREDIT TODAY!
