Credit repair takes some time before youíre able to get a loan
Q: My husband and I filed for bankruptcy and our home went into foreclosure about a year ago. We want to own another home some day and have been trying to straighten up our credit by making an effort to pay our bills on time. How long do you think this will take us? Will it be possible to obtain another mortgage with a foreclosure in our past? If we have a good down payment, would that be beneficial?
