It will be important that you reestablish good credit to help offset the negative items you are working to resolve. You might have a hard time getting approved for new credit accounts until you have paid back the delinquent one. In this scenario, secured credit cards can work very well, ideally you get 2 secured credit cards, likely with limits of 300 per account, use them to a maximum of $50-75 balance each month and then either pay off or pay the minimum monthly payment each month.For the accounts you are attempting to resolve, it would be wise to see if the creditor will agree to a deletion of the account in exchange for payment. Deletion will provide the best chance of score increase, as opposed to paid derogatory, or settled derogatory status update.Lastly, your current rent payment has no bearing on your proposed debt to income ratio on a purchase. Good luck on your improvement.
