Tim and I put new windows on the house last year, and went through the window company's financing company to get them put in. We then went and took out a home equity line of credit to pay off the financing with the window company because their promotion of 6months no interest was just about up and the interest rate was way high-it was a line of credit, but not against the home itself, kind of like a credit card. The original credit line with the window company is still open, and can be used, but we don't plan to. My question is, do we call and have them close it, or leave it open? I have heard it both ways. I hear if you close it on your own, it will increase your credit score or look good on paper if we request financing for something else. I also have heard it is not a good idea to close it because it makes you look like you don't have enough, or something. Which is it? I have the instinct to call and close it, but I am wary of it.
