I'm looking to buy a house 08/13, is it a bad idea to open a loan to consolidate all current debt?
I can consolidate all my debt into one loan but I don't know if taking out a loan 7/8 + months out would be a good idea. Will that affect my chances of getting a mortgage? It would allow me to pay down my debt much faster. Thanks!
