America's Foreclosure Epidemic

Your Credit, Your Money, Your Life.
Special Report About Credit And How It Effects You!

 


Details about your financial behavior and identification information are contained in your personal credit score. This consumer-friendly report is sometimes called a credit file/report or a credit bureau. A your credit score makes it easy for you to understand the information a lender would be seeing if they review your credit history. The typical consumer credit score includes four types of information.

By law, a credit score cannot disclose certain medical information (relating to physical, mental, or behavioral health or condition). Although they do not generally collect such information, it could appear in the name of a data furnisher (i.e., "Cancer Center") that reports your payment history however. If so, those names display in your report, but in reports to others they display only as medical payment data. Consumer statements included on your report at your request that contain medical information are disclosed to others.

Public record information in some states may also include overdue child support, tax liens, foreclosures and judgments. Bankruptcy information can remain on your credit score up to 10 years; unpaid tax liens can remain for up to 15 years; other public record information can remain up to seven years. Public record and government web sites may display this information long after credit scoreing agencies are prohibited from displaying the same information.

Credit information includes specific account information, such as the date opened, credit limit or loan amount, balance and monthly payment and payment pattern. The report also states whether anyone besides you (a joint account holder or cosigner, for example) is responsible for paying the account. Active positive credit information may remain on your report indefinitely, while most negative information remains up to seven years. The most important factors to look for on your credit score are as follows:

  • Account Name/Number
  • Balance
  • Status (Collection, Chargeoff, Previously Late, Paid, etc.)
  • Credit agencies listing the item
  • Imortant Dates (Open date, Close Date, Activity dates)

Most important above all is your credit score. This number gives you a indication of your "credit health".

  • 300-499 - Terrible
  • 500-599 - Poor
  • 600-650 - Fair
  • 650-699 - Good
  • 700-850 - Excellent

Personal information is also contained in your report and can include your name, current and previous addresses, telephone number, reported variations of your Social Security number, date of birth and current and previous employers.

Two main factors determine your overall credit strength and are considered by all lenders and creditors before approving you for a specific rate. The worse these two factors are, the worse rate you get, or the more often you will be turned down all together for loans and credit lines:

  • Credit Score (as determined by your both your positive and negative credit history)
  • Debt to Income Ratio

No one can improve your debt to income ratio, only you can. It basically means how much money you make versus how much you already have credit you have extended

If you have a low credit score however, this will also be one of the biggest reasons why you will always pay more to get less. Or worse, why you will get denied for the loan, or credit line you want. It is so important to your financial health to raise your credit score and improve your credit situation if you have poor or even just a few marks against you on your credit score.

You will save more (tens of thousands over a period of years) and you will always be able to have more than someone with poor credit. It's just a simple truth.
