Was One of Your New Year Resolutions to Get Financially Fit?
 

      The New Year is typically the time most people pledge to make changes in their life.  They hope to start anew.  implement new habits.  Turn themselves and their lives around.     
https://1609956119.secure-loancenter.com/FreeConsult.aspx      Were you someone that made New Year resolutions? Did those resolutions include sticking to a healthier diet, getting fit, quitting smoking, or losing weight?  

     Or did they focus on another type of fitness ... your financial fitness?

     The New Year is the perfect time to address all your fitness concerns.  To get healthy on all fronts.  To pair down, de-clutter, organize, spruce-up Credit, Credit Scores, and finances.  Tax time is just around the corner, so it's also the wise thing to do.  

     When was the last time you ran your Credit Report?  Checked the accuracy of your Credit Report?  Now more than ever, your Credit Scores are important.  They play a huge part in determining the cost of items and services you need on a daily basis.  

     Your Credit Scores can determine what you are charged for:
  • Rent 
  • Auto Insurance
  • Auto Loans
  • Mortgages
  • Cell phone service
  • Interest Rates on Credit Cards 
  • More ... 
     The affect of having poor Credit and Credit Scores can be far reaching.

http://www.genemundt.com/MortgageChecklist.aspx      Because of this, your New Year Resolutions regarding "fitness" shouldn't be based on diet and exercise alone.  Your Finances and Credit standing and fitness should be taken into consideration as well.  This is especially true should you be considering the purchase or refinance of a home in the future.

     Do you need help getting started or beginning a financial "fitness" regimen so you can become a homeowner for the first time ... or so you can return to home ownership once again?  Do you need help in polishing your Credit or just a bit of guidance so you're positioned as best as possible financially?  

     Contact me.  Together we'll discover your present financial position and talk about how we can improve it.  And should you be considering a home purchase during the coming year or the near future, we'll determine the best plan of action for you moving forward.

     No matter your financial position or financial needs, it's always wise to take the time to check them on a consistent, timely basis.  Being aware and knowledgeable about your financial fitness and health should be part of your annual fitness resolution too ...

Unfortunately, fitness is not a priority in this country . . . whether it's financial or personal.  And that's where you can help folks get their financial fitness goals in order.

Good advice Gene. Some people care deeply about their financial and physical health and others blow it off. I personally can't sleep at night knowing I owe bills, I like to pay them early when they come in and forget about it.

This is very good advice Gene..getting financially fit should be a priority in everyone's lives.  Having a lender they can come to, like yourself, is even better!

Gene: We all make resolutions about personal fitness, let's face it, then probably break it pretty quickly. However, our financial fitness is foolish to break because it will cost us much money and headache in the future. Great post!

Gene ~ what a good idea to think about financial fitness as a resolution for the new year.  More people should consider this since it impacts so many areas of our lives. It's time to request my free credit report and also to check my score -- Thanks for the reminder!

Carla:  The offer is there!  I hope those in the Chicagoland area A: Hoping to get "get fit"  for B: the fulfillment of their dream of buying a home .. contact me to get started.

Brad:  I agree there is a pecking order of importance.  But financial fitness can definitely be a determinate in those you mention too ...

Thanks, Tammie.  The New Year just seems to beg for it, doesn't it?

Eric:  I send wishes for only good and positive things ...

Noah:  I'd say that is the proper order of things.  Mentally it pays off ... and obviously financially it does the same.  To go one step further, giving thought to the how and why of the debt is important too ...

Thank you, Brenda.  I appreciate your kind words ...

George:  I agree.  The assistance and guidance you and I can provide as Lenders is very valuable ... and very FREE in this instance.  We're a bargain!  I doubt you will find that "free" offer by fitness gyms ...

Hella:  Both types of fitness take a plan and the determination to stick to that plan.  The payoff for both are long lasting ...

Maureen:  Glad to hear that you will be pursuing this suggestion on your own behalf.  Shout out if I can answer any questions or be of assistance in any way ... good luck!
