A cure for ailing credit

April 24th, 2009

Credit has become a much-used word, thanks to the various connotations that it is being used in. Transactions in which the payment is deferred to the near future are termed as credit transactions.

Ever thought why the grocer sells goods on deferred payment- because of a good credit that you enjoy. Credit is the reputation or standing that a person has in the society. Though credit includes various non-financial aspects, our study primarily includes the financial aspect.

The lending community watches every financial transaction of the person in question with its hawkish sight, and classifies the cases from excellent to worst. One cannot be sure of staying on a particular credit rating for a long time, owing to the volatile nature of the credit reports.

A single instance of default or late payment can tarnish the credit for a long time. Having contracted bad credit once, you would always find yourself facing the same situation, unless some serious efforts are taken to get out of the muck.

Do you think that the issue is insignificant to your case? Think again. Checking with your counterpart having a good credit rating will reveal the higher rate of interest being charged by you. The reason for this extra charge is a bad credit tag that accompanies your credit report. It will be much easier for a person with good credit to get a loan than for a person with bad credit.

These and many more reasons make credit repair a priority.

First check the credit report. Every person who has ever indulged in credit transactions will have a credit report prepared by the credit reference agencies. A person can apply for a credit report within 60 days of receiving the bad credit notice. Make a note of any discrepancies in the credit report. There are many debts that you have not incurred but are present in the credit report. Many trivial matters like divorces, lawsuits etc affect credit. It will thus be important to see that even the smaller discrepancies are not overlooked. Credit report must be regularly checked to fix such small discrepancies within time. This will also help trace identity theft on your account. These must be fixed immediately.

The paragraph above dealt with entries in the credit report not conforming to the person. Next, we deal with the case when there actually is a debt that has not been paid. The debt must be paid up as quickly as possible. Delay beyond a month will make payment inconsequential because the credit reports will incorporate the defaults, thus making the bad credit irreversible for a period of about six years.

Credit counseling will be beneficial for people who are not much aware of the various options available to them. Various credit-counseling agencies are available on the net and on phone. They even conduct personal meetings with the clients. After having a chat on the problem being faced by the client, they suggest viable solutions. However, the client can refuse using the solution if they do not find it useful.

Prevention is better than cure. Certain steps may be taken to prevent credit rating from worsening. Only a few loans must be taken. The number of debts will vary with the income capacity of every individual. Regularity in payments will also have a positive impact on the credit rating. A considerable time gap must be maintained between any two loans . Having too many loans with a shorter repayment period can have serious repercussions for the finances. This too will affect the credit rating.

These will not clean up the credit report altogether, but will at least help to make a small dent in the bad credit history. With a concerted effort over a period of time, the credit history will transform.

Bad credit has serious repercussions for the individuals. They are refused loans by most of the lenders. This article explains the various methods to repair the credit history. It also gives tips have been provided to keep the credit rating from falling.

Home loan advices

April 22nd, 2009

Here are my home loan advices to you:

Home loan advice no 1.
Buy a home only if on the long run it’s value will increase. If it’s old, in bad shape, you have bad neighbors, try to not take the loan

Home loan advice no 2
Be very carefull of the banks conditions. If the bank asks you for several commisions, if the bank has hidden conditions, if you want to repay in advance the credit and they charge you more for this, etc.

Home loan advice no 3
Beware of your further ability to make money. If you will not make a lot of money in the future, getting a huge loan now it will not be a sound decision

Home loan advice no 4
Always negociate. Even banks have some fixed products, there is room for negociations. After all, they are humans. And humans are changeble. Anyway, you want loose anything.

Home loan advice no 5
Don’t trust very much loan brokers. Because they are interested in selling you the best product for them, not for you. Do you really think that they will present you the product that will bring them the lowest commision? :) Common. Especially for mortgages, where the values are very high.

Why Refinancing a Mortgage necessary?

March 25th, 2009

There are a number of reasons why we need to refinance. The requirements of home improvement, college education or just reducing the monthly mortgage payment are some of them. You have to locate a refinancing company that provides you the most suitable rate while you opt to refinance your existing mortgage. Prior to refinancing, it is prudent that you carry out comparison shopping.

At a time when college education is getting much costlier, going for mortgage refinancing is becoming a common trend. Everybody wishes to send his child to college for higher education and become established in life. This is one of the reasons why people refinance their mortgages. There are various options for refinancing and getting professional advices from a mortgage loan expert would help you determine which option is right for you.

A quite common reason for mortgage refinancing is debt consolidation. You can repay your piled up debts like outstanding medical bills and credit card debts. This motive might become more common in the days to come with the new law for bankruptcy soon to come into existence. It eliminates creditor harassment which is truly painful while managing debts and nobody wishes to carry on with the bills they are unable to repay. Therefore, resorting to refinance to get rid of these bills is a sensible measure. This would assist you to better your credit rating.

No matter what your reason is, there would be competition among the lenders to provide you refinancing. Shop around online or contact various lenders and make comparisons between the refinance quotes offered by them.

March 17th, 2009

This is a cry for reasoning: Refinance a loan, any loan. Here is the reason: BECAUSE YOU CAN.

Refinancing means renegociation. And today, in our shaky macroeconomic environment, you need any help you can get.

I saw Oprah is telling everybody to close down the light when you are not using it, to use coupons at the grocery shop and so one. All these advices will help you save peanuts comparing to the savings from a loan refinancing.

Yes, I strongly suggest to refinance a loan. Because, in the negociation process, you will definetly cannot loose. Either a smaller rate, either in worst case scenarion, your request to refinance a loan is rejected. So, like I said, you cannot loose.

Go now to ALL your suppliers of loan refinancing and ask them to give you a quotation. Or you can ask a quotation in the right column, on our site.

To refinance a loan means a huge relief on your monthly cashflow. GO for it now. And make the comparisons. Good luck :)

Credit cards

March 10th, 2009

credit cardsCredit cards are one of the most devious invention of human kind. It allows you to spend, mortgaging with your future life and future incomes. What is weird is that everybody consider that THEY DESERVE to spend on debt. So credit cards become a very good industry to make people slaves to consumption.

USA became the most in debt country in the world. And collectors will come some day. Usually in a form of the crisis. Now we have a big crisis on our hands. Hopefully it will pass. But huge amounts of money had been lost…

Anyway, my advice to you is to NOT USE credit cards again. I know, you got used to them. They are handy. They are cool. But is wrong. You should consume on what you have.

Buying on credit was considered a excelent invention. It permits you to buy something now, instead of 20 years from now. In both cases you were paying the money. The only difference is that if you buy on credit, you get the asset now, not when you are old and dying.

The things is that buying on credit involves many risks.

The exacerbation of the credit (especially via credit cards and loans), determined the increase of prices. If the credit was not here, the prices would be a tenth of present value. Much more affordable, in the first place…. isn’t it? Not to mention the devaluation of whatever you can buy with a credit card.

Credit cards are nocive especially because they allows you to buy consumption things, not assepts that you can consider investments, correct?

So, why should you use credit cards? Just as a drug addict needs his dose? Can’t you restrain yourself from spending guaranteeing with your future life? Credit cards are good only if you invest something in yourself. If allows to buy a future stream of income.

Did i convinced you not to use credit cards? :)
