CREDIT REPAIR

 

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO REPAIR YOUR CREDIT
3 Important Things You Can Do Right Now

Credit score repair 

 

Request a free copy of your report. Check to make sure that there are no late payments incorrectly listed and that the balance owed for each account is correct. Credit reports can often times have errors and can be disputed with proper documentation.

 

Set payment reminders to ensure there are no late payments on any of your accounts.  Not only will this help protect your credit score, but you will save on any late payment fees your creditors may charge you.

Balancing your budget

Reducing your debt can be just as satisfying as improving your credit score. Stop using credit cards, make a list of all of your accounts and check recent statements to determine your balance and interest rate. Come up with a payment plan that puts most of your available budget for the highest interest rate cards first, while maintaining minimum payments on your other accounts. Using balance transfer options that offer zero percent interest for a period of time an also be a great way to chip away at your higher interest debt.
