Paying off any debts is in general always good, but did the lender let you know why your application for a mortgage was denied? Was the amount of loan needed to buy the property you were interested in too
high? Or was your income too low, and or your current outstanding expenses, like hospital bill, credit cards etc. etc. too high compared to your current income. There could be many reasons, but you need
to sit with a good local lender and look at your credit score and your income, and your outstanding
obligations, and then the lender could give you some helpful advice...

Hi Ms. Keys,

Paying off bills and credit cards will boost your score. I can put you in touch with a lender that can give you a strategy to improve your credit.

Speak to your lender who denied you.

Usually paying off and/or correcting negative info on your credit report has a very positive effect on your scores.
