– Twenty-two percent (22%) of the credit reports listed the same mortgage or loan twice;
– Almost eight percent (8%) of the credit reports were missing major credit, loan, mortgage, or other consumer accounts that demonstrate the creditworthiness of the consumer;
– Thirty percent (30%) of the credit reports contained credit accounts that had been closed by the consumer but remained listed as open;
– Altogether, 79% of the credit reports surveyed contained either serious errors or other mistakes of some kind
Wow… even if you did everything right 1 in 4 credit reports have errors significant enough to impact your financing do to mistakes.
The good news! Your not alone and Norstar is here to help.
1. You need a current credit report from all 3 credit bureas with FICO scores to review.
2. Honestly assess where you are. Own it, you co-signed for your brother’s car and he missed payments. When you co-sign you are saying you will make the payment if they can’t. If you can’t afford it… Don’t co-sign. No matter how bad your credit, it can be fixed. It is just a matter of time and your willingness.
3. From this day forward protect your credit. If you have a dispute over a cell phone and they threaten collection… even if they are wrong… pay it! and then fight. That $60.00 collection will cost you way more on your credit score. Know who reports… Car inspection was $500 more than expected and you have to pay a credit card and a utility bill. Most utilities don’t report a late payment. Pay the credit card! Protect your credit score.
4. Understand that just fixing the bad credit does not build your credit score. It pulls your score down and correcting it may increase your score only if you have a positive current credit profile. We have strategies, please contact us to discuss your personal situation.
