  1. Thanks for the info! I have a collection thats about $1500 from almost 7 years ago. In that case I have ZERO debt but when I paid of all my bills. My credit score drop significantly. Is that a bad thing?

  2. Hi there, I am purchasing a new build home and we are going to use FHA Loan. We are closing in December. Is there any probability of the loan falling off even after an initial pre-approval? Do we get our earnest deposit?
