  • What is Credit/FICO score?

    Your credit score is a three-digit number, usually between 300 and 850, that's based on the information in your credit report.


    700 or higher is generally considered a good credit score, while 800 or higher is excellent.


  • 2 tips to improve your FICO score starting today 

    1. Set up "minimum auto payment" on your all credit accounts to avoid the late payment.
    2.  Use only 30% of your credit limit. Example: If your credit card limit is $10,000, then use only up to $3300.

     On the FICO® Score  8 scale of 300 to 850, one of the credit scores lenders most frequently use, a bad credit score is one below 670. More specifically, a score between 580 and 669 is considered fair, and one between 300 and 579 is poor. 

  • What is lender requirement for FICO score for a mortgage?


    500 FHA (with 10% down payment

    580 FHA (with 3.5% down payment)

    580 USDA


    620  VA

    700 JUMBO




  • How is FICO score determined by the credit bureaus?


    1. Payment History: 35%

    2. Amounts Owed: 30% - As your credit utilization ratio increases, your credit score may drop and lenders may see you as a potentially risky borrower.

    3. Length of Credit History: 15%

    Accounts you choose to close in good standing (meaning with no late payments) remain on your credit report for as long as 10 years

    4. Credit Mix: 10%

    5. New Credit: 10%

     Hard inquiries on the same type of loan made within a short period of time (two weeks to be safe) and consider them as one inquiry.  Note that hard inquiries made in relation to credit card applications don't get this same treatment: Each inquiry is considered separately, and can have a bigger impact if you apply for several cards in a short time span. Your credit will usually decrease less than five points for an inquiry, and if you keep up with your bills, your score will typically rebound within a few months.



  • How much does a credit check affect your scores?



    When a company checks your credit report when you apply for new credit, such as a credit card or a loan, the process is called a "hard inquiry." This credit check remains on your credit for 2 years but has a short-term impact. After a few months, the impact to your credit scores should start to decrease. If you have multiple credit checks, outside of rate shopping, the impact to your credit scores could be greater.



    Inquiries remain on your credit report for two years

  • How to file a dispute on your credit report?



    Ways to dispute Information on Your Credit Report - Experian

    TransUnion and Equifax have their own processes for disputing credit reports, but Experian provides three methods for submitting disputes:

    • Online: Get access to your Experian credit report and initiate a dispute at the Experian Dispute Center (more on that below). There is no cost to you for using this service.
    • By phone: To initiate a dispute by phone, you'll call the number displayed on your Experian credit report. If you'd like to have a copy of your credit report delivered to you by mail, call 866-200-6020.
    • By mail: You can dispute without a credit report by writing to Experian, P.O. Box 4500, Allen, TX 75013. (Printing out Dispute by Mail instructions can streamline the process; you can also scan the completed form and submit it electronically to

  •  Don't close a credit card. why?



    • Closing a credit card will reduce your available credit, which can increase your credit utilization ratio and cause your score to decrease. Another way that closing a credit card can impact your credit score is by reducing the length of your credit history. A closed account in good standing will remain on your credit report for 10 years and will continue to benefit your credit score. Closing your credit card may initially drop your scores—but it'll be temporary, and your scores will rebound as you continue healthy credit habits.




  • How long  collection accounts stay on credit report?



    You can't get a correctly reported collection account removed from your credit report early.

    Even if you pay off the debt, the collection account will stay on your credit report for up to seven years. The timeline depends on when your debt first went delinquent, not whether you still owe the money.


    However, if you notice an error with the collection account, you can file a dispute with each of the credit bureaus to have the account corrected or removed from your credit reports.


    The original delinquency date is when your account first became 30 days past due

  • Identity Theft



  •  Should I Dispute a Collection Account?



    If the debt and the collection account in question are valid and correct, there's no basis for submitting a dispute. However, if you believe information about the collection is inaccurate, you have the right to dispute your credit report. Find out more information on how to dispute credit report information. Here are three instances when disputing a collection account might make sense:

    • The collection account is not yours. If you find a collection account on your credit report for a debt you don't recognize, contact the creditor or submit a dispute with the credit reporting agency that maintains the credit report it appears on. It could be the result of an error or identity theft. Once disputed, the company that reported the collection will investigate and, if it turns out not to be yours, the entry will be removed from your credit report.
    • The collection is expired. If more than seven years have passed since the debt originally became delinquent, you can submit a dispute asking to have the entry removed.
    • The collection is paid but it shows a balance. If you pay off a debt that is in collections, the collection account on your credit report should show a zero balance. File a dispute if the account continues to show an unpaid balance, since paying off a debt in collections may reflect positively to lenders and on your credit score, and may be a requirement for certain lenders.

    Recovering From Collections

    Seven years may seem like a long time to carry collections information on your credit report, but while you're waiting for it to expire, focus on managing the collections process, paying off your debt and working on good credit habits. Checking your Experian credit score and free credit report regularly can help you spot any new issues and track your progress.

  • What information is in a credit report?



    Ever wondered what information goes into your credit report, and what to look for as you’re reviewing it? A credit report is a summary of your unique financial history. The three nationwide credit bureaus collect and maintain a history of your credit activity as reported by the lenders and creditors you have accounts with. Your credit report includes important information about you, including:

    • Personal information, such as your name, Social Security number, aliases or former names, current and former addresses, and sometimes your current and former employers;
    • Account information, including payment history, account balances and limits, and dates the accounts were opened or closed. This includes credit accounts that may be in your name such as credit cards, mortgages, student loans, and vehicle loans;
    • Bankruptcies and accounts in collections; and
    • Inquiries, which lists the lenders and other companies that have accessed your credit report.

    As you look at your credit report, keep the following in mind:

    • In the personal information section of your credit report, is your name listed accurately, and your address up to date?
    • In the account information portion of your credit report, are the accounts listed complete and accurate?
    • If any of the information is inaccurate or incomplete, it is important to contact the lender or creditor that issued the account, or the nationwide credit bureau that issued the credit report.

  • Is it a good idea to refinance your mortgage?

    First, check your credit cards, car loan, student loan & shelter requirements. Then go with your gut feelings to either keep multiple payments or one payment which is possible by paying off all the debt into a mortgage loan. Use your home equity as your bank during this tough economic time.

    Be ready for the another refinance when rates will be lower again in future.
