What Effects Our Credit Scores Negatively?

Services for Real Estate Pros with HOPE USA Inc.


Have you ever wondered what effects our credit scores negatively?


There is first of all the obvious:


  • Recent late payments
    Old collection accounts
  • New collection accounts
  • Too Many inquiries
  • Judgements
  • Tax liens
  • Bankruptcies

Then there is not so obvious:

  • Outstanding balances on our credit cards (even when paid on time)
  • Too much credit
  • Credit from a Finance company

Unexpected things happen to people everyday. Sometimes poor decisions are made like I did when I was young and thought there was no way back to good credit. Some once had great credit but because of a job lay off, an accident or an illness found that their credit picture changed drastically.

Most of the time people want to straighten out their credit but either do not know how or they do not have the time to educate themselves and do all of the things necessary to get their credit back on track.
