How To Maintain Your Credit Score During COVID19

Paying Bills - We understand it's not going to be easy, but try to at least cover minimum debt payments before they pass their due date. This helps secure your credit score and ensures you meet the minimum requirement. 
Lenders Help - Talk to your lender about the hardship you have faced, and try to come up with a payment plan that works for both of you. There is a global pandemic happening, so chances are your lender will understand and ament payment policies on a temporary basis.
Regular Check - The same way you regularly check your health, you must check your credit reports. Making sure every dot is in place helps prevent damages and extensive procedures. Making sure you are on track, and can easily maintain your standing.
Online Disputes - If you see any errors you can easily dispute an issue online. The process remains the same, you attach a letter of dispute along with proof. Keep in mind that you must file a dispute with the credit bureau that showed the incorrect information. It might take longer than expected, due to endless online queries and disputes.

It's the number that defines your current state, but it does not define you. Just like a bad habit, you can break free from a bad credit score - so why wait when you can get started now. To help you get started we are offering you 5 ways you can find the perfect realtor even when you have bad credit.
Finding out you have a bad credit score is not the end of the world. Yes, it's not easy to live with a bad credit score, but that does not mean you will never be able to turn your life around. Let's start by finding you a realtor that takes on clients with a bad credit score.
  1. Lenders Connections - Most lenders who take on individuals with low credit scores can help you find a realtor that is more than willing to take on the challenge. There is a great pool of realtors that are ready to help you even though you have a low rating. It's as simple as asking for a number.
  2. Referrals - There is nothing wrong with asking your friends and family for realtor referrals, there is a good chance they know someone personally - or they know someone who can help you find the perfect realtor. Either way, getting as many referrals as possible allows you to go through them and find the ones that match your requirements. Moreover, it allows you to sort them out based on areas, making sure you get the top choices available. 
  3. Research Online & Offline - It's best to research the realtor you are looking to hire, if you are searching online a basic google search can help you come up with a bunch of information. However, if you are unable to find something concrete online, we suggest you go for some good old fashioned offline research. As your potential realtor for referrals you can speak to, someone who lives in the area you are interested in would be the ideal choice. 
  4. Interview Your Picks - The only way you ensure you pick the right one is by setting up interviews with at least the top 3 candidates. Rather than betting all your chips on one, it's best to take your time and shop around. The process allows you to sit down and have a conversation with different realtors. Allowing you to identify which one works best for you. Furthermore, it enables you to chat with the realtor and find out their process, the way they handle clients, and what they have to offer. 
  5. Closer Look - Just because you have found a realtor that fits, does not mean the contract they offer you is stellar. Never sign the paper without giving it a complete thought. So ask to take the contract home and look it over thoroughly. Only when you understand the contract, and what it has to offer should you sign and paper and hand it in. There are realtors that might take advantage of your situation, so secure your interest before you decide to jump in with both feet. 
These five easy ways can help you not only find the perfect realtor but even secure a settlement that offers you great returns in the long run. When looking for something direct and simple we suggest you get in touch with one of the many virtual assistants Holliday Credit Repair has in place, ready to take on your query - and to help you get started on the right path.
<![CDATA[5 Steps To Find The Perfect Home With Bad Credit]]>Wed, 07 Jul 2021 09:50:47 GMThttps://hollidaycreditrepair.com/blog/5-steps-to-find-the-perfect-home-with-bad-creditAre you tired of writing checks to your landlord every few weeks, but are unable to purchase a home due to your bad credit score? Looking for a way to make things work even when you are at your lowest? 
The good news is there is still hope for you, and what you need to start with is your credit score. If you do not know where you stand, we suggest you start by finding out exactly how deep in the barrel you are. Once you have your credit score in hand, here are the 5 steps you need to follow to find the perfect home with bad credit.

Step 1

Start by checking for errors in your credit score. Keep in mind that your credit score is calculated using your credit data in your credit report. The credit data is a view of how you have spent borrowed money, and if you see any errors that damage your credit rating it's time to file for a change. Every citizen receives a free copy of their credit score every 12 months, and you can even use online sources to get a copy.

Step 2

Once you have determined what your exact credit score is, get ready to pay a higher percentage of interest rate. Due to your current credit score, standing lenders are going to charge you more due to the risk involved. This allows the lender to protect themselves in case the partnership does not work out in the long run. Moreover, most individuals with a low credit score are known to miss a payment date or miss the payment on a whole. 
For instance, you take on a 30-years fixed-rate mortgage loan for $200’000 with a 3.77% interest rate. Your monthly payment without property taxes or homeowners insurance should be about $928. 
On the other hand, when you take out the same amount with a 5% interest rate, your monthly payment without taxes and insurance will be about $1’073. A $145 difference per month, that will add up to $1’740 annually.

Step 3

Loans offered by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) accept a lower credit score. With a 580 FICO credit score, you can easily qualify for an FHA insured mortgage and even get a 3.5% down payment. However, your first FHA loan will be insured by the FHA, but they come from mortgage lenders. Similarly, while they are open to offering loans to individuals whose credit score is as low as 500 - it does not mean they accept every application they receive. 
Furthermore, FHA loans come with financial penalties, and you cannot cancel their mortgage insurance throughout the loan period. Another catch with FHA is that their mortgage insurance ranges a bit higher than others, where you can find yourself paying anything from $40 to $83 on a $100’000 loan.

Step 4

Lenders are more open to you when you offer a good chunk of money as down payment. There are times when you can even secure a 3% or lower interest rate based on your down payment. Additionally, a larger chunk of down payment can even secure your approval, while others are easily rejected due to a bad credit score. 
When you put in more money as a down payment, you show that you are interested in making a change. Creating a certain level of trust that enables the lender to see you are willing to stick it through the entire process.

Step 5

Rebuilding your credit score even by a little can help you secure the perfect home even with a bad credit score. When lenders see a change, and how you are working to build a better ranking, they are more open to offering you a loan.
