Time to move on is now. Rentals are in high demand, so I'm guessing that agent has been inundated with inquiries, or it has been rented. It's too bad they don't have the courtesy to at least give you a call back. I suggest you contact local property management companies. ... more

If you are listing your home yourself try to use real estate sites where the property is listed. Follow the guidelines. Sometimes there is a need for a license number. At that time you need a license number or take help of real estate agent. But make sure the information of property provided by you is accurate. ... more

If there is a garnishment, that means there is a judgement. In most cases the judgement would have to be satisfied in order to get financing. However, more information is needed in order to address your specific scenario. See a licensed loan officer in your area. ... more

Good afternoon Tania,

Most Lenders today require a Score of at least 640. It is unlikely you could be approved for a mortgage loan with a Score of 593.

First, settle any outstanding debt. If you owe money on collection accounts, charge-offs and/or judgments, make payment arrangements and get these accounts paid promptly.

Next, begin rebuilding your credit. If you have current accounts with good payment histories, or even some previous late-payment-blemishes, make sure you continue to pay those accounts on time. If you do not have any existing credit accounts then you'll need to establish several in order to create a viable credit history.

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 buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.

James Deskins answered:
I disagree with Charles. The first mortgage holder does not automatically release you from the debt. In some cases banks have gone after sellers for the balance of the loan on the first mortgage. Normally they will release you but there is no guarantee. Check with your lender and get everything in writing. ... more

Sounds like you have plenty of fond memories. You may have sold the house but the home will be with you forever.
