The Benefits of Credit Repair

The Benefits of Credit Repair

Why should you Consider Credit Repair? Discover the Basic Reasons!

Do you look at your credit report and think about nothing but credit repair? If yes, then perhaps it’s high time to get your credit repair process started. Anyone with poor credit scores will definitely know what a low credit score can cost you. Wonder how severe the consequences are?

Well, high interest rates can seriously damage your finances, period. Imagine the payments you would have to make if your interest rate increases from 5% to 15%. All in all, your poor credit score can make you pay thousands of dollars additionally per year. This is the primary reason why it is critical to look at your credit report and repair your credit score. After all, it will not only lower your interest rate, but will also help you get loans.

Credit Repair – Is it Really Helpful?

When it comes to credit scores, a single mistake can cause you serious trouble. A recent research suggests that almost 79 percent of all Americans have some type of inaccuracy, miscalculations, and negative accounts in their credit reports. A majority of these errors can hurt their credit scores badly. In these situations, credit repair is the ultimate option they can get to bring their finances back on track. The process of credit repairing is used to identify mistakes, correct the relevant information, remove negative reporting and monitor the creditors to ensure that your credit report is as accurate as possible and corrected accordingly.

Better Insurance Policies

The policies most insurance companies offer are based on the clients’ credit reports. For instance, you will not get a reasonably priced insurance policy if your report suggests that you are late with paying other accounts. Thus, credit repair can clean up your credit rating and help you get substantial savings over the duration of your policy.

Better Job Options

Nowadays, many employers check an applicant’s credit history as an essential step of the employment screening process. Wonder why? Well, credit reports usually disclose what resumes may never tell. Employers check credit reports to determine if an applicant has unpaid child or spouse support, has a verdict against him or her, or pays bills promptly. In instances like these, you can get a fresh start by opting for credit repair.

Better Loan or Mortgage Facilities

A low credit score can have a negative impact on your ability to get different loans. You may not get the desired loan amount or may have to make greater interest payments on the lifetime of your loans. If lenders find a poor credit score on your report, they can lower your credit limit, thus making the loan even more expensive for you. If dealerships turn you down for loans or offer very high interest rates, you have to consider going for credit repair. This will increase your chances to get your desired vehicle or own your dream home.

Since credit scores and credit reports can affect you and your loved ones in a number of ways, it is important to keep your credit score in superb condition. Credit repair doesn’t only benefit individuals with a low credit score, but can do wonders for people with average credit by getting negative items off of the reports, disputing late payment information and correcting any inaccuracies on your report.

Great news if you’re thinking of selling your home: Almost every area in Texas is a seller’s market right now.

That’s certainly the case on my street, where a house recently attracted six offers within 24 hours of the For Sale sign going up. (Four of the offers were above asking price.)

Another house on my street that hit the market last week took all of three days to garner a successful offer.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a similar selling environment, finding a buyer may not be too difficult. Does that mean you should try to sell your home on your own? I wouldn’t. Here are three reasons why:

Setting the right price is crucial. Do you know how much to ask for your home? Making a pricing mistake can cost you a lot of money. But a Texas REALTOR® knows what’s going in your market. He or she can help you analyze the latest data and the specifics of your house to arrive at a price that maximizes your profit.

There’s more to consider than money. How should you handle the termination option? Is the buyer’s earnest money enough? What if the buyer wants to make buying your home contingent on selling her existing home? And if you do get multiple offers, how do you respond to make sure you obtain the highest price possible and the most attractive overall deal?

Getting a buyer is not the same as selling your house. Accepting an offer is only the beginning. Real estate transactions can fall apart for a variety of reasons: financing difficulty, problems discovered during inspections, missed deadlines, contentious follow-up negotiations … even hurt feelings or cold feet. A Texas REALTOR® has experience dealing with potential pitfalls, though, and knows how to minimize problems on the way to a successful closing.

Largest Bump in Home Prices Since 2006

Largest-Bump-in-Home-Prices-Since-2006-350x247

Largest Bump in Home Prices Since 2006

Home prices nationwide, including distressed sales, increased year-over-year by 8.3 percent in December, the largest bump in home prices since 2006 and the 10th consecutive monthly increase in home prices nationally, according to analysts at CoreLogic.

Looking month-over-month, including distressed sales, home prices increased by 0.4 percent in December 2012 compared to November 2012, according to the December CoreLogic Home Price Index report released Tuesday.

Home prices in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex have followed a similar track. The National Association of Realtors on Monday will release its fourth quarter metro area home prices report, which will provide specifics for the DFW market.

“Demand for housing will remain strong through 2013,” writes Robbie Briggs, CEO and president of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty, in the latest edition of his quarterly “Robbie Report.” “The supply of homes is tight in Dallas, which should signal good price appreciation.”

Indeed, the CoreLogic analysts say home prices should continue to climb in 2013.

“We are heading into 2013 with home prices on the rebound,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “The upward trend in home prices in 2012 was broad based with 46 of 50 states registering gains for the year. All signals point to a continued improvement in the fundamentals underpinning the U.S. housing market recovery.”

The analysis is based on MLS (Multiple Listing Service) data.
