Almost all the effects of a hard pull are remedied after 6 months, and the complete effect of it is gone by the year mark. However, hard inquiries will stay on your report for 2 years; just their effect on score will drop off after one year. All the best!

It's going to vary from person to person depending on the file and also how many you have.  The thinner the file the bigger the impact.  The more IN'q the bigger the impact, to an extent.  As mentioned above after six months it's minimal and after a year it has no impact.
