I just filed for bankruptcy and working to bring up my credit. How long before I can get a mortgage?I just filed for bankrupcy due to a small business gone bad but have a great new job, good income and am working to increase my credit score by using and paying off 2 unsecured credit cards. Will also get a secured credit card and use it and pay it off each month. How long will it take before I can get a lender to give me a mortgage? Also, any other hints to help increase my credit score?January 17 2011 - Denver00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
