    I'm happy to tell you all that my wife and I closed this afternoon on our new home. Thank God it's all over. My sincere thanks to all of you on this board for your help and insight into credit repair. A special note of thanks to Momof3, who was there cheering me on when I thought the deal was going to fall apart.

    Now I can't wait to apply for a Home Depot card!

    Congratulations. I hope you dont make the same mistake I did. I thought that since I had a house that I would be approved for everything. Instead I was declined for everything. You may need to wait a month for your mortgage to actually report on your credit reports. You may also need to be more aggressive to make sure that the mortgage is actually reporting on all reports. Mine still is not reporting on Equifax and Experian.

    Having a mortgage did not do anything to change my credit status. It was just one more new account, and I have actually been turned down because I got the mortgage and home improvement loan (the rejection was because of the new accounts).

    Manny - Congrats on the house. I'm sure it feels great!

    Thank you all for your good wishes and words of encouragement during this tedious process. I hope that all of you that are looking forward to home ownership make it.

    As for applying for credit, I couldn't help myself and applied online for Home Depot. I'll let you all know how that turns out.

    I hope waking up for the first time in "YOUR HOME" feels as good for you as it did for me! Well, actually, my first night I had to sleep on the floor because I hadn't unpacked my bed yet, so it kinda didn't feel 'that' good, but you know what I mean! LOL!

    Kitt, Randy & Shawn,

    Thanks a million!!! I'm broke but I have a home. Not a bad trade off I suppose.

    Randy, sorry about Citi. I was in the chat room the night that you applied. If you really want a Citi card I'm sure you'll get it. Just may take a little time.

    Shawn, I won't be moving till later on in the month. I have the rent paid at my apartment unitl the end of August so I'll take my time, do some painting and get the place to our liking.

    Kitt, the best of luck to you. There's nothing like coming "home"
