Re: Do you have to pay off old collection for mortgage?

Thank you all for contributing! Okay, I feel better about the CO, not great, but better knowing that if I do decide to do USDA, I can be approved. Now my last question is, I started 11/08/10 at my job. Do I have to wait at least exactly 24 months before I can apply for USDA loan? Meaning, I should not apply until after 11/08/12?


Starting Score: Walmart myfico 664 TU Lender Pull 690 EQ Lender Pull 669
Current Score: Walmart myfico 698 TU Equifax- 686 Experian- 692 Transunion- 700 Lender Pull 7/18/12
Goal Score: 720

My best guess would be you could apply prior, but probably not close prior...  It takes a while to find a home, so I would venture to say getting pre-approved in like, sept shouldn't be an issue... I am unsure as I went FHA Smiley Happy

Sure they do.  What makes you say otherwise?
