Forget using credit repair services and take a few simple steps on your own and, with patience, see the difference.
True credit repair is simple, but often not quick. Credit repair may take anywhere from 3 to 6 months before you can actually see your credit score rising, but nevertheless rise it will.
If you are thinking of buying a home, get your credit report beforehand, review it, and then work on improving it. You will be eligible for lower interest rates and a lower down payment.
2. Reduce the balance on your other accounts where they are no more than 30% of your credit limit.
3. Continue using just three of your accounts, but continue paying down the balance each month so that it will not exceed 30% of your credit limit. Activity on these accounts is important. Don't let these accounts become inactive.
4. Avoid opening any retail store accounts where you are tempted to get 10% off your purchase price.
5. Forget any collection accounts that are over two years old. These accounts have very little impact on your credit score. Leave them alone.
