Below is a guest column from Jay Robins, who is often referred to as “America’s #1 credit expert.” His opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect those of Foreclosure.com or its staff. He will lead an enlightening webinar later this evening called “How To Save $100,000 On Your Mortgage.” Read below to find out what it’s all about and to register for the educational session.

If you’re hoping to qualify for a trustworthy lender’s best-value mortgage in 2011 or 2012, you will need to work at improving your credit score, even if you always pay your bills on time. And if you’ve had a short sale, foreclosure or bankruptcy, you will need to work even harder.
But you can quickly build it up again if you know how to play the game like a professional.
