Open several lines of credit -- for example a VISA credit card, a department store card, a gas card, and use them and pay them off. Buy a car using credit, and be good about making your payments on time. If you have a hard time even opening one of these types of lines of credit your can do a "Secured" line of credit.

I can see that you have received a number of answers to your questions already, but I thought I should post something anyway. I have actually lived in England myself for about 6 years (I did my A Levels and University degree there) and have only moved to Connecticut about 3 years ago.

I think that it comes down to your residency status, i.e. are you and your husband here on a temporary visa or do you have a Green Card, as well as to how you are going to finance your home purchase, i.e. how much down payment will you have, will the loan be financed by a local or a foreign bank (a bank that is not located in the U.S), do you have a credit history in this country, etc.

I would also advise you to get in touch with an attorney to make sure that you’re not overlooking something that will slow up the process once you’ve found a suitable house.

If there is anything that I can help you with or if you have any other questions, please send me an email any time --- ---, or give me a call on my cell phone --- 203 465 8066.

Kind regards,

Hint: we're not buying because we KNOW prices have a lot further to go. $950K median listing price for Fairfield? When median income is $140K? We call that a B U B B L E. ... more
