Well, I can tell you from a personal point of view, depending on how much bad credit you have it may take you a while to get it good enough for aloan for a house. I had alot of bad credit and so did my husband. He chose to file bankrupt for his credit and I chose to clean mine the way I intended when the credit was given to me. i took one bill at a time and divided into reasonable payments. I paid them off one a t a time until each were done. It took me two years (applying my taxes to it too) and while I was doing this I also got a credit card, one with a yearly fee, but it helped to establish good credit again for me. I now have got rid of that card and have three others with out fees, I use in emergencies, or just to boost my credit score. We are now ready to buy a house and resently was approved for a loan of 180,000. Not as much as I would hope, but much better then two years ago when we could not even get a loan for 62,000. Good luck to you.
