How many points does your credit score go up from buying a house?

As long as you make all of your payments as agreed and are never late financing a home is one of the best things people can do for their credit. Your score goes up after 6-months and continues to go up the longer you make your payments. It shows stability and responsibility. Only if you do not make your loan payments fully and on time will the score not improve. If you make the loan payments and avoid taking out any other loans or new lines of credit for a while, it could actually significantly improve your credit score. It will take several months to a year to do so, but the longer you handle a sizable loan like that responsibly, the more good it will do your credit score.

If your credit score went from 740 to 630 after two 30 day late credit card payments how long will it take for your score to recover?

Credit scores are calculated based on ALL the information reported. Derogatory items, including older collection accounts being updated, legal items being filed and late payments, affect your score in the "history" portion. History accounts for 35% of the score. Your late payments will appear on your credit report for 7 years. Their impact is significant in the first 12 months and decreases from then on, but they will continue to impact your score for quite some time. As a general rule of thumb, a 30-day late will drop your credit score by about 50 points. This might seem like a big hit, but it halves after 12 months, then does the same after 24 months. Therefore, after 3 years, the 30-day late payment will still result in a 6-point dip in your credit report.

What is the impact of a foreclosure on your credit score?

Foreclosure and FICO The total impact of a foreclosure on ones credit report is estimated to be between 200-300 points. The foreclosure itself accounts for 125 -175 points and the late payments that led up to the foreclosure account for the remaining point deductions. Ironically, the higher your score was to start with the more points will generally be deducted. After several years (2-3) your credit score will have rebounded substantially as long as other payments are maintained. You can expect anywhere from a 50-100 points penalty remaining on the report at this point.

How do you build your credit after bankruptcy?

There a 2 very strong ways to improve credit after bankruptcy. A secured credit card is the main choice. Secured is when you send the credit company money and in turn they send you card with a credit line of the deposit (Capital One) is the most used and recognized. After good payment history these company will return your deposit and increase your credit limit. This takes about 12-18 months to go from secured to non-secured credit. The other is "bad credit" car loans. These companies will finance everyone regardless of credit but they report prompt and good payment (as well as bad) to the credit files. After the first six months your credit score will increase by 25 points and after a year 50 points and after 2 years 100 points and after 3 years 150 points. The lowest score after bankruptcy you start at is 425 so in 3 years your credit score goes from 425 to 575 which is the minimum base from conventional loans. However after 5 years with no "blips" on payments your credit score will be $675-700 which is good credit and securing conventional loans becomes much easier. There is no guarantee of getting loan despite all this but financial banks always look favourable of people who take responsibility and change their financial patterns for the better
