Yes, but not to the severity you must be thinking. Inquiries from banks viewing your credit score and report will lower your score by a few points, and excessive inquiries will hurt your chances of any lines of credit. Just don't apply for too many loans or credit lines (2 max a year) within 5 years of your expected application.

Depends on credit score prior to foreclosure. If your score was higher before foreclosure, it might drop 200 points or so. If it was lower before foreclosure, it might drop closer to 100 points. It varies significantly.

first it depends what kind of charge off it is. and your credit score is all up to which credit company your checking your credit on .. there is no real answer to that question.

In short, not likely. Almost no mortgage company will give you a loan without checking your credit score. Your best bet is to focus on improving your credit score. They are many ways to do this, some methods that can be done in fairly short period of time.

3 reports are pulled and your score is the middle number of the 3.

1. If you dont have credit, get 2 credit cards. 2. Make SMALL purchases on your credit card. 3. Pay off your credit COMPLETELY each month. 4. Wait 12-24 months. 5. If you have a credit card, but have a high balance, pay it down as much as possible. your credit score can jump 50-100 points if you payoff your credit cards. 6. If you are applying for a mortgage and have bad credit, many times the large national lenders such as Wells Fargo or Chase can better help you raise your creddit score. They can tell you that you need to payoff this, this , and this to get your credit score to jump 50 points. Good luck! Henry

points don't matter, you will have "repossession" on your record which will turn a creditor away.
