The first thing I would do is get with a mortgage lender to see if you can get pre-approved for a loan.
If you need any help with finding a mortgage lender I have a few you can call. Just let me know!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give me call.

You have plenty of time to get your score up however different lenders have different minimum scores -- anywhere from 600 to 640. Cathy Hodge at Coldwell Banker Mortgage requires a minimum of 600. And, depending on your income & if you are a first time homebuyer, you may qualify for City of Columbus Down Payment Assistance which is a grant of $5000.

Cathy's number is (706)596-2050. If you need further assistance in planning to buy a home I would be happy to help.

Best of luck, Margot @ KPDK

Best thing to do is to call a local lender that will help you get your credit score up. A good one will get you focused on those itmes to remove from your credit report that will have the most effect. With 6 months ahead of you, you have time to get your score up. I recommend Alesia Parker with Silverton Mortgage. She can be reached at 706.507.4564.

Please let me know if I can help in any other way.
