How Is Your Credit Score As A Home Buyer?

How Is Your Credit Score As A Home Buyer? 

 

The time for a home buyers to find out their credit score is not when they apply for a mortgage.  In fact, it is unsettling that with all the free credit resources out there, home buyers to be do not utilize them.  If this is YOU well I need to suggest to you today that you find out how good your 'financial house' is in order or not...right now.  Understand that it will take you some time period to correct any inaccuracies or repairs needed on your credit report so your credit score rebounds.

 

Many of the top credit card companies now offer your credit score to you for free.  Have you checked that out?  You need to know it since a lower credit score impacts so much of your borrowing and life including your car and homeowner insurance costs.  

 

Did you know that you are entitled to one free credit report every 12 months from each of the three nationwide credit reporting companies (Experian, TransUnion and Equifax).

 

You can order online from www.AnnualCreditReport.com, the only authorized website for free credit reports, or call 1-877-322-8228. You will need to provide your name, address, social security number, and date of birth to verify your identity.  

 

As disappointed home buyers with merging families comes to me and finds out their credit has issues just when they need to buy a house.  They could have been ahead of the curve by checking on their credit months ago but waited.  Having your financial house in order is a prerequisite to borrowing for a home.
