Check Your Credit Report

Financing

Be ready to Purchase!  Check Your Credit Report!

Credit card companies and lenders rely on credit scores, which determine someone’s chances to borrow money — and how favorable the terms will be.

Check your own score yearly by ordering reports from the three major credit scoring companies: Equifax (www.equifax.com), Experian (www.experian.com), and TransUnion (www.tuc.com).

Notify the credit bureau of inaccuracies. Close accounts not in use. Request that late payments older than seven years be removed. Verify and update accounts and account numbers. Verify address and Social Security number.

Remember!  You improve your credit score by paying all of your bills on time.

If you have any questions about this process, call me!  I can refer you to one of the mortgage companies I work with!
