Credit Repair Put John Smith Into A New Home
Three years and two weeks ago, John Smith (not his real name) had to sell his home through a short sale, but thanks to a great credit repair plan, he was able to close on a new home yesterday.
Three years ago, his finances were a wreck and he couldn't qualify for a loan for a cup of coffee, but yesterday he closed on a $350,000 home, financed by John Morgan with Ameris Bank, and his credit score is at 691 and rising.
This is obviously super news for John Smith, and it is also the culmination of our case study on credit repair and how I think the credit repair industry is going to save the housing market.

Credit Repair Will Save The Housing Market
In Tallahassee, as well as many other housing markets who have seen scores of short sales, there exists a void in the demand for houses from a major segment of the normal buyer pool.
Due to a lack of borrowing ability by families who have historically owned their homes, representing roughly 25% to 35% of the historically normal demand, the demand side of our market has not yet full recovered.
In the real estate graph above, the orange line shows the average demand in the 1990s, and without the impact of market cycles we should be well above that now simply due to the growth of our population (blue line).
The Tallahassee real estate market is clearly falling short on the demand side, and it is my belief that the missing "normal" demand is due to past homeowners working out their credit issues.
Without credit repair, we likely have five more years for this segment to completely stream back into the market, but with the right credit repair company helping them clean up their financial reports, these buyers (like John Smith) can be buying homes in Tallahassee almost right away.
If you have done a short sale in the recent past and want to know more about becoming a buyer again (to take advantage of low mortgage interest rates and low house prices), just drop me a note and we can schedule a time to review your situation and start you on the path to homeownership with a great credit repair plan.
