Hi, I have been working hard at repairing my credit from some late payments on credit cards. I also want to buy a house next year. I have never checked out my credit report and want to check to see what my score is. However, I want to compare the score now and compare it to a year from now when I am ready to buy a house. If I pull my report now and then a little under a year from now does checking it twice in a year go against my score?? Is there a way to check it but avoid any negative marks?? Thanks.
