Fix Your Credit, Buy A House

Many aspiring real estate investors or first-time homebuyers never get off the ground because of less-than-perfect (or straight up bad) credit.

Even if they do, stricter lending guidelines and policies thanks in large part to the mortgage meltdown five years ago make it hard to borrow money even with average credit. The good news is there many ways to improve your credit scores, some as simple as making a few phone calls.

In other words, there is simply no need to be held back by an imperfect credit report.

If you want to dive into distressed real estate investment and need financing to do it, we’re here to help you get there. Even if you have a short sale, foreclosure or bankruptcy on your report, there are things you can do now to prepare you to get back in the game.

The foreclosure crisis 2012 silver lining: Great real estate deals, investors paradise

The national mortgage crisis has certainly taken its toll on the United States economy.

From one coast to the other, the effects have been pervasive and far-reaching. People have lost their homes. Banks are now being held accountable for unfair foreclosures. Real estate investors, agents and brokers have been forced to change their tack or get lost in the shuffle.

But, it’s not all bad news.
