As long as you are not late, once you pay back your credit cards, score goes WAY UP right after you pay off your CCs!!! But if you intend to buy a house right away with out paying off debt from the sale of your house, I would discuss this with your mortgage broker. Low credit scores alone will not kill a mortgage opp. Being late, missing payments, this will effect it.
