  1. Hi, I'm a newbie but I did a little cleanup of my credit 2 years ago using the online disputes, now forward 2 years at the end of last month saw a house that I loved so decided to try to buy it, checked my credit score on my equifax online account and it's at 604 so I'm afraid I might not qualify for a conventional loan, one of the big problems is that I had a high credit card debt ratio with my 5 credit cards (also some settlements and a short sale), about 95% utilization, so immediately called my credit card companies and found out what day they report my new balance to the credit bureaus, so paid off as much as I could and for 2 of my credit cards I was able to increase my credit limit so I lowered my credit utilization to around 20%. now according to a person from Capital One once they report to the credit bureaus it takes them 3-5 business days to update their information, so for example Capital One reported yesterday, so at the earliest I plan on having my mortgage broker pull my credit 12/18 (5 days after), seems to good to be true that when they pull my report it will show my new lower balance, is this possible? or am I delusional and it takes much longer (1-2 months to see results)? I also got desperate and contacted Lexington Law and they're supposed to send some dispute letters. Thanks!
