Mid score is 548, I am working with preferred lender of builder, everything already pulled and reviewed. Lender advisedly of what to do and with rapid restore believes util will bump my score where it needs to be. Lender recommended only signing contract for a new construction so I have a few months to accomplish this.
Contract has a financing clause so I get my money back if I don't get full financing approval.

Yes that is the last collection. I do have a late on an old walmart card that I am trying to goodwill- they agreed to delete one but left another (I am pleading for the other), I havent had any lates in a year. Last late before the wally was in early 2011.
Only C/O is from 2007.
