Qualifying for a home after bankruptcy

Dear Experian,

When lenders see bankruptcy on your credit report does it turn them away from lending to you? What is the best way for me to rebuild my credit? I have started by getting two credit cards and have never been late with a payment, but what else can I do? I would like to purchase a house soon, but I’m afraid to try.


Paid collection accounts not removed from credit report immediately

Dear Experian,

If I pay the bills that were sent to collection will they come off? How do you get them off? I’m trying to get a home in the next few months and my credit score is low.
