Didn't get the preapproval loan. They said I had bankruptcy on my record and I have to wait one more year before they can re consider me again. At least my credit score is improving! ONE MORE YEAR! I loved this house and now I have to kiss it good bye! Only other option is to rent it but not sure if owner would rent it out. The house has been on the market since 11/28/09. Hubby does not make enough money to their satisfaction. Anyone had problems buying houses with their bankruptcy years ago in this housing market? I know the statue of limitation in IL is five years but loans can not be done until the seventh year. So would renting would improve my credit score even more?
