Building Good Credit: Getting the Word Out

Reblogger Maureen McCabe
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

 

This is a Re-Blog of a post from Steve Shatsky a real estate agent in Dallas. 

Steve lived in Central Ohio in the 1980's.   I believe Steve worked out at Honda.  Lived in the Sawmill Road area? 

Steve is a short sale expert in the Dallas market.

Good Credit does not happen accidentally.  It is a deliberate effort on the part of consumers and it comes from simple things that are within everyone's control.  Things like paying your bills on time, keeping lower balances on your credit cards and not over extending yourself with lines of credit.

The Ad Council has come up with a very funny and innovative public service announcement campaign for television and radio.  The campaign features the concept of consumers believing in the Credit Fairy and their friends and spouses dispelling that myth.  Check out this one:

More people with good credit means more people who can legitimately qualify for and afford to buy new homes.  After the string of Short Sales, Foreclosures and other financial hardships we have seen over the past few years, there will be many consumers who need to rebuild their credit.  Helping to educate them will benefit us all.

Hi Maureen... Wow!  You have my whole Central Ohio history in a nutshell.  It has been so long that maybe I need to come for a visit just to take a trip down memory lane!  Thanks for re-blogging me!

I try to help a few of these on a daily basis. But they also need to be willing to help themselves. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for stopping by, really. 

Please do yourself a favor though and drop the " Thanks for sharing." It makes me want to run screaming from ActiveRain never to return.  More good, honest, interesting people have stopped participating on ActiveRain because of the "thanks for sharing" comment drivel. 

This is posted to consumers... I shared it with consumers.  I Re-Blogged Steve's content (thanks Steve) for consumers and  while I don't mind comments that say something I hate "Thanks for sharing" type comments, you were doing so well and then you said it... "Thanks for sharing."  

Don't let "thanks for sharing"  become a habit.  Or don't let me see it... (hint that means move along ) or I go off like this..
