Provide your credit report to a local lender and they usually have a program that they can use to show what your credit will do when you address the various issues on your report.

You really need to have someone take a look at your credit report and advise you on the specifics. A good mortgage lender can usually recommend what to concentrate on that will have the biggest impact.

You can also go to a site like freecreditreport.com, they have all kinds of information on how to improve your credit score and for a small fee you can monitor and watch your score as well..

If you need the name of a few good local mortgage lenders, send me an email and I will recommend someone who can help :)

Good Luck,

Yes. Pay you credit cards on time and pay them down. If you get to a point where they have no balance keep them open with $0 balance. Part of the score is the amount of credit limit to credt balance. It's best to have this under 50%.

You may take the advise from a mortgage banker.
