henderson ky: Credit Card Protection Tips for Evansville, IN and Henderson, KY! - 01/29/13 02:04 AM
Did you know that this time of year is the worst for credit card fraud? That’s because credit cards are used heavily during the holidays, and consumers aren’t as anxious to examine their statements in January and February! The Better Business Bureau has tips to help you protect yourself, and I’ve added my own thoughts as well! 1. Always get receipts and keep them. Make sure you have a printout of your online order confirmation. Keep all physical receipts from brick-and-mortar locations. If a clerk asks if you want your receipt, say yes!

henderson ky: Could Your "Core Score" Help You Buy an Evansville Home? - 11/05/12 03:56 PM
If you would like to become a homeowner in Evansville, IN or Henderson, KY, but your credit history is lean, having a good "Core Score" could help you. Unlike traditional credit reporting that relies on your record of credit card payments, car payments, and consumer loans, your Core Score takes other payment behaviors into account. Here's how it works! The Core Score does not replace the credit histories and scores compiled by Experian, TransUnion or Equifax. Instead, it supplements these reports by including data that is normally not a part of your credit profile. Depending on your situation, this could help, (0 comments)
henderson ky: How to Find Home Buying Bargains in Henderson, KY! - 09/24/12 04:37 PM
Now that summer is over, another busy season is upon us - the season of the motivated home seller! If you have been waiting to buy a home in Henderson, KY, autumn is a great time for serious home shopping! Here are a few things to look for when scouting for homes that may have motivated sellers: Days on Market. Buyers have been very picky this year, and good homes can be overlooked for cosmetic reasons that have nothing to do with value. Also, the longer a home remains on the market, the less interest buyers tend to have in it, (0 comments)
For Henderson homeowners who need to consider selling their home through a short sale, one of the primary concerns involve the impact to their credit score. Home sellers often have the impression that a short sale does not harm their credit score as badly as a foreclosure would. While short sales are preferable to foreclosures, FICO makes no distinction between the two for credit score purposes. In a recent blog from August 2012, FICO explains that a foreclosure event and a short sale amount to the same high-risk default category, and therefore the score damage is about the same.
