What You Can Do to Improve Your Credit Score

Credit scores, along with your overall income and debt, are big factors in determining whether you’ll qualify for a loan and what your loan terms will be. So, keep your credit score high by doing the following:

Check for and correct any errors in your credit report. Mistakes happen, and you could be paying for someone else’s poor financial management.

Pay down credit card bills. If possible, pay off the entire balance every month. Transferring credit card debt from one card to another could lower your score.

Don’t charge your credit cards to the maximum limit.

Wait 12 months after credit difficulties to apply for a mortgage. You’re penalized less for problems after a year.

Don’t order items for your new home on credit — such as appliances and furniture — until after the loan is approved. The amounts will add to your debt.

Don’t open new credit card accounts before applying for a mortgage. Too much available credit can lower your score.

Shop for mortgage rates all at once. Too many credit applications can lower your score, but multiple inquiries from the same type of lender are counted as one inquiry if submitted over a short period of time.

Avoid finance companies. Even if you pay the loan on time, the interest is high and it will probably be considered a sign of poor credit management.

Hi trippleattitude, Take some time to hire a realtor. Interview a couple to see who will best fit you and your family. Your realtor will be your guide on this journey and this luxury is paid by the seller. They will know the intimate details of the neighborhoods and keep you on top of the market. Good luck! ... more

asirois answered:

The first question is what type of home could you be approved to buy, and you could determine this by obtaining a pre-qualification through a VA lender. As a direct VA lender, I would be happy to help you out with this.

Right now in San Diego you can purchase a home for less than you can rent a home for in most areas. There are closing costs to consider, but those can mostly be covered through closing cost credits.

In 4 years you have the option of selling your home, or renting it out to cover the mortgage if the housing market has not appreciated enough to cover the cost of sale and mortgage payoff.

If you 'd like to discuss this further, you can call me at 858-229-5399, or check out our web site listed below.

seek the advice of a credit repair professional. That's what I would do. You might have to pay them a fee but if it helps get that monkey off your back it's worth it. Hope this helps.

See link for helpful information When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Shanna Rogers answered:
Hi Jacedionne,

Get pre-approved for your loan (unless you're paying all cash) - so you know what properties you should look at for purchase. And, hire a Realtor to assist you - unless you know all the Real Estate laws in your state. The seller usually pays all the commission - for both the listing agent and the selling agent (buyer's agent).

Vicki Moore answered:
Hi Yesenia - The loans are different. There are specific lending institutions that loan on them.

Mobile homes depreciate like a car as opposed to a traditional property that goes up in value. Many of the parks charge very high rental rates. They also have an application in which you have to apply.

The upside is that you may be paying less than renting and you have a chance to pay it off. Although the park may raise its rates, your loan payments are likely to stay the same.

I hope that info is helpful.

Best wishes

no they can not. Homes listed here must be listed with a Realtor which reduces the amount of possible scams by non-agent listings that are not real, many FSBO listings are not real or they are so old and never been removed from other sites. ... more

Let me understand have "bad" credit, and you are in the middle of, or had, a foreclosure and still have unpaid tax liens ?

No, you can't buy another house at this time, nor should you, until you clean up the mess you're already in.
Your focus should be on dealing iwth your issues, not looking to get further in debt.

Best wishes..........
