How Sensitive are Creditors about Inqs and New Accounts over time?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how sensitive some creditors are about inquiries? New accounts? For instance, does Citi care about inqs or new accounts that are 6 months old? Cap 1? Amex? When do certain creditors stop caring, 6 months? 12 months, or do some of them hold it against us for the full 2 years?

 

I have gotten Cap 1 Ventures with a 15 inqs on Ex, 5 on Eq and 3 on TU and a lot of new accounts when they pulled the reports. Does that mean they don't care about inqs on 1 of the 3, or are they doing some kind of averaging since they pulled all 3?

For some creditors, ONE INQ has been cited as a reason for denial. (As in.. one too many.)

 

It varies by creditor, widely, from what I gather from here!

I've noticed that approvals start to slow down after 5 or 6 consecutive inquiries...auto-approvals stop..an underwriter has to look at your app etc. However, it seems like you can start getting approvals again after your accounts

age for 3 months..and I'm sure bumpage helps.

Inqs not much. Unless they are so recent as to indicate the possibility of a bunch of new accounts opened but not reporting yet.

 

New accounts, most places look at the last 12 months.

Thank you for the replies everyone. I was just trying to figure out how long I should wait before trying with Citi; guess I won't be applying for a long time since my last spree was last month.

...and by one's credit. X inquiries and/or Y accounts could be a concern for person 1 with creditor A but not with person 2. Don't just assume it's all about the creditor.
