It depends on why you were disqualified. If it was because your income debt ratios were off, the effect will be immediate, If it was because it impacted your credit scores it may take a while for that to heal because of how the credit scoring algorithms work at the credit scoring agencies. That is particularly true if the score was impacted by late pays. In the meantime do not close credit card accounts. Just pay them down or off. The longer an account is open helps your score.

There are some great lenders out there that will work with you in advance of being ready to purchase. They'll pull your credit and set up a game plan to help clean up your credit and give you a time table of when you can expect to be ready. If you aren't already working with one give me a call and I'll be happy to refer you to a few that could help!

That's a question that you should speak to a lender directly about. There are a lot of factors that are a part of your credit score/ history. A lender could help you through this process. If you are working with a realtor now ask them who they recommend. If not you can give me a call or email me. We can out together a plan and contact a lender. I hope this helps.
