How long until score rebound?
I bought a new home last September, then bought a car later that month. My score immediately dropped by around 80-100 points depending on the agency you're checking. I have heard that buying homes should eventually improve the credit score but am wondering how long that might take? As it stands now I'm afraid to even apply for a new credit card for fear that the agencies will punish me more. Any thoughts?
