Utilization

Get your usage on Credit Cards down to zero. Depending on what it is now, this may give you the quickest score increase, and it will look very good to the underwriters. You can try to dispute bad credit reports, but this is a gamble and may play out over a longer time.  Anything else requires time.

If you can give us an overview of your current financial life...debt, avail credit, utilization, current credit score, etc...we can be more specific. You'll get vague answers with vague info.
