Fixing Your Credit To Buy A Home

Is your bad credit holding you back from the American Dream of home ownership?

You’re not alone.

During the Great Recession, millions of Americans watched their credit scores plummet. And although the nation’s average score has rebounded nicely to 700, according to the latest reports from the credit bureaus, there are definitely people still struggling.

Generation Y, also known as Millennials, (born 1982-1995) doesn't fare much better at 638, and Generation X (1967-1981) is 658. Only when the age scale reaches Boomers (1947-1966) does the average surpass 700 (703).
