Credit repair has never been more important. Millions of people are experiencing the great benefits of credit repair. If you have not explored the potential of genuine professional credit repair, now is the time.
Credit Repair, Now is the Time
Credit repair is more important than ever. Creditors have tightened their guidelines, effectively barring millions of Americans from borrowing money. Mortgage lenders, auto finance companies, and credit card issuers have all raised the bar. Borrowers with lower credit scores can expect to be denied, or to pay significantly higher interest rates than borrowers with good credit. If you have credit issues you cannot afford to ignore the potential benefits of credit repair.
Credit Report Errors are Common
To understand the potential of credit repair it is essential to grasp the extent of the inaccuracies built into the credit reporting system. Over three-quarters of all credit reports have errors. The three major credit bureaus would love you to believe that correcting these errors requires nothing more than a click of the button on their websites. This is far from the truth.
The Cost of Credit Reporting Errors
Wouldn’t it be great if credit reports were accurate? After all, your credit score may be the most important number in your life, and will certainly determine the interest rate you pay on your loans. Your interest rate will determine your payment, and a higher payment means a tighter budget. In short, credit reporting errors put a dent in the quality of your life and cannot be ignored.
Look Out For Yourself
A close read of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the legislation that governs the behavior of the credit bureaus reveals a disturbing reality. Although the FCRA requires the credit bureaus to comply with consumer credit repair disputes, it only requires compliance to the extent that corrective measures do not cause financial strain on the credit bureaus. In other words, accuracy is desired, but only in as much as a subjective measure of reasonableness allows.
The Professional Edge
Credit repair could easily become a budget-buster at the credit bureaus. It is in the best interest of the credit bureaus to perpetuate the damaging mythology that credit repair professionals can do nothing more for you than you can do for yourself. Customers of professional credit repair services have long known that credit repair involves far more than disputing obvious errors. A credit repair expert will typically identify twice the number of problems as an untrained consumer. This can mean a major difference in your credit scores.
Professional Credit Repair Qualifications
Professional credit repair involves in-depth knowledge of the FCRA, including reporting period limits, dispute procedures, and the specific obligations of the credit bureaus. A credit repair professional must also have a practical understanding of the FICO credit scoring model, an intimate grasp of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act and individual state specific statutes of limitationfor different debt types. Knowledge makes all of the difference in the results. And when it comes to your credit you cannot afford to settle for less.
Do it Yourself Credit Repair
If you are going to attempt credit repair on your own it is essential that you are well prepared before you begin the process. You should not take any action at all without a thorough grasp of everything involved. I have seen hundreds of people worsen their situation by jumping into the process without proper preparation. One of my favorite do-it-yourself books on credit repair starts with a firm warning that you should not take any credit repair action until you have read the entire book, cover to cover. The book is 500 pages long.
