One thing to remember when buying a home. The lower your credit score the higher the rate. Your going to have this loan for a long time so get the best loan you can the first time.
If you attempt to qualify for a loan to purchase and don't qualify due to poor credit or your offered a loan with a high rate. We offer a credit restoration program that will remove any derogatory items including Foreclosure & bankruptcy. The process takes 30 to 45 days and you will have 700 plus fico scores.
I went through the program myself. My scores were in the low 600s, now my average score is 739. I started the procedure 1/6/2014 the process was completed Feb 20 2014.
Want proof I can show you my credit report before and after. Contact me at or 858-945-1047

There are many reasons why a score could be low. You just mentioned one of them. Lenders don't care about medical collections. But they do care about repossessions, foreclosures, bankruptcies, judgments and recent charge offs. Your credit is low because of negative items so in order to improve it you have to add positive ones, and it does not mean necessarily paying off old accounts. Give me a call or send me an email and I'll send you a report that I recently wrote called "Establishing or Restoring Credit" where I tell you about the secured credit card and many other things you can do. Sometimes you can do things that would increase your scores immediately and sometimes you might be able to buy in 6-12 months.
