FICO Credit Scores: Watch Before You Pay Someone Who Says They Can Raise Yours

Education & Training with Better Homes & Gardens | The Masiello Group

Your FICO credit score now impacts more than just rates for home loans.  We may not like it, but it is here to stay.  Before you pay some internet outfit who promises they can raise your credit score, check out the video below.

Mainers now have a great tool available for free to them from our partners at Reliant Mortgage.

Don't live in Maine?

First, I'm sorry!  Think about it and give me a call if you'd like to relocate here to Vacationland!

If you plan on staying where you are, call around to your local mortgage brokers, they may offer a similar service.

Thanks for the great informational video!  The general public should definitely be aware of some of these issues.  There are scams abound!

Very professional video Kristen, you're a natural born vlogger. This is valuable information for the people in Maine who are concerned about these matters.

Yes Jennifer.  One of my clients almost fell victim to one of those.  Fortunately she called and we got her hooked up with Brendan at Reliant Mortgage and they are succesfully working on getting her score up.  In fact, we are looking at homes today.

Thank you Malcolm!

Kristen, I think your videos are looking great!  I checked out four of them on your blog.  This one has good lighting, good sound, good delivery and good content.  You look and sound very comfortable, natural and approachable.  Thank you for sharing and best wishes.

Thanks Susan.  Took me a while to get out from behind the camera. :-)

Thanks Rene.  It is always worth checking, just for the errors that end up on there alone.

THanks Brian.  Yes, there are a lot of scams out there.

Thanks Richard.  Slowly getting the hang of it.
