Freaking Out HELP!!!

I've been poking around the forums for a while and I keep coming across stuff about how even though something falls of your CR doesn't mean a lender can't see it. I'm freaking out about this because the hubby and I really want to buy a house and we have busted out rear ends trying to pay stuff off and improve our scores. I know there is unpaid stuff that has fallen off our reports. We were huge fans of the ostrich method for quite a while. You know stick your head in the sand and ignore it till it goes away. I have no clue what could be lurking and now I'm paranoid that when we do go try to buy a house this stuff will come back to haunt us. What should I do?

I was told in this fourum that the mortgage will see all unpaid debt even if it falls of the report, they see everything, your best pick as I was advised is to pay them off if you want to get mortgage.

It's very rate that they look at that, usually if you're wanting a loan more than $150,000 (this is what I've read on here) my husband and I have been speaking with a lender and told them he has two things falling off this year (one fell off tonight) and they didn't say anything about it being an issue (this is for a USDA loan)

I don't know how much of this is fact.  I think if you are requesting a jumbo loan they can.  I can't imagine someone really going back umpteen million years to dig into your past.  The past 7 years is a very large snapshot of someones credibility.  In fact, some lenders look past collections that are on your report if they are more than a few years old.

It is rare, only some lenders do it and its only on a loan of 150,000 or more.  If thats a requirement you can always look for another lender that wont require it.
