Credit score is good but not great, but should improve after paying off all of our CC debt with the proceeds from the sale of our current house (that's a separate question I had: how long between paying off all CC debt and seeing your FICO score rise?)

About 30 days. Since you don't know when each creditor reports to the bureaus, it may take longer for all of them to complete their reporting.
