I have contact info for a couple of credit repair people that are here in Alabama. I'd recommend talking to each and seeing what they recommend, what they can do. Usually (depending on your situation) they can get someone's credit scores up in 2-3 months. It will take work, doing what they tell you to and being diligent. It may also cost a little, but I've heard nothing but good things about them. If you'd like, get in touch and I will forward their information to you.

For an FHA mortgage, most lenders require a 640+ credit score for the last 2-3 years now. Prospect Mortgage is one of the few direct lenders to offer an FHA 580-639 FICO loan program. Credit profile is a major factor in a mortgage approval. Generally, there should be no late payments, new collections accounts/charge-offs/liens/judgments in the last 12 months. HUD does require that all open collection accounts must be paid in full if their cumulative balances exceed $1,000.

The answer is "Yes". There are some really good lenders out there and there are some really bad ones and I hope you find yourself in the hands of someone in the first group. Here's a short story for you. I sat down with a young couple a little while back who had been denied a loan by a major bank. Discouraged but not detoured, they decided to give it another chance and called me. Sure enough their credit report was a Train Wreck which had credit scores on the low 500's, and with good reason. So one by one we went over their collections, charge-off's, and judgments. I gave them a road map to follow and they left my office. Not excepting to ever hear from them again, I received a phone call six months later and they asked for an appointment to come back and see me. Much to my surprise they had somehow managed to accomplish everything I instructed them to do. As the couple sat down at my desk, the husband leaned towards me at said, "We did what you told us, now can you do what you said?" Well that answer to that question, was "Yes" just like I've told you earlier in this post. The real question is: Will 2011 be the year to open the closet take out the skeletons and bury the bones? If so you will become a homeowner, that's a promise. You can read an article I wrote on this very subject at my blog that should help and make things more clear.…

Take care,

Please be careful...don't pay anyone to help improve your credit score. Put yourself on a budget, pull your credit report and clean up anything that might be wrong or already taken care of. Close inactive accounts and pay off everything you can. Once you have paid off your debts and have some savings for down payment and an emergency fund, you will be in a much better place to start shopping for a house. Good luck!
