Dear Grumpy Realtor,
If I have a foreclosure on my record and move to another state, will the record follow me? It’s been a few years.
Trying to Start Again

Dear Fugitive,
I hate to break this to you, but your record is your record. You don’t get time off for good behavior, hardships, or packing up and going on the lam. You can almost certainly find a lender that will give you a high-risk loan for your next endeavor, but the smart money might be on just waiting until 7-10 years have passed before you try again. Otherwise you’ll be paying through the nose. Now let that be a lesson to you.
