I'm moving soon, and was leaning towards purchasing a condo oppose to renting again. I have a credit score of 582 and need to get it pass a 620 to even be eligible to apply to most morgage loans. I want to apply for a secured credit card, but not sure which one to go with. I also want to be added to someonesaccount as an AU user, just don't have any one at the time. An other ways, or credit cards I may be able to appy to that can help increase my credit score in less than 4 mth??
Cap1 secured. Increase the deposit to 1K or more.
You may also want to app for a 2nd secured card, possibly with a credit union. FICO likes at least 2-3 CC's reporting for good point increases.

Yea that's gonna stop you cold right there.
FUNK-O-METER, why do you say that? are they bad or something?
They are not considered ethical to use here on the forum. They prefer that you do not mention them. In most cases, advice here on the "rebuilding your credit" forum can do the same thing Lexington Law can do and without costing you nearly as much money.

LL is okay. Just a matter of whether or not you want to get educated and have enough time/effort to do yourself. Or pay the XX a month and have them help.
