I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website.

Beware of anyone offering to "repair" your credit! The Federal Trade Commission issued a stern warning last year that such offers are scams. Find more from the FTC HERE.

The best way to get an objective opinion about neighborhood safety is to confer with the local police.
Police Departments keep crime statistics for each neighborhood.

Pull all the sale statistics for the same location, building and surrounding streets. Figure out how much properties are selling at a % discount from list price. Put together a CMA/Valuation.

Hire an exclusive buyers agent (do not work with the agent listing the property) to help you. They can walk you through the entire process and gather all the above information and tell you what it's worth.
