“The Moral of the Story, Not All Credit Reports are Created Equal”

“The Moral of the Story, Not All Credit Reports are Created Equal”

 

 

I have been coaching these folks for nearly a year. Their credit scores where much lower when we got started and they have been make progress. I got this email from them and the scores they were getting on their own, just weren’t making any sense.

 

hi joe. we've done everything for Kim's score. She got credit cards shes making her payment on time, school loan on time and cought up. it been almost a 8 months now and 2 of her score are high 650's is only one experian doesnt want to improve her score, its stuck at 610 ish. she has called several time and they won't review or improve her score but the other 2 places go up regular every month, we really want to get out of this house were in now its way to high for are budget. can you do another check on are scores specially hers. so we can move forward. or were stuck here for another 6 months? thanks scott and kim

 

When I did a report the scores were much higher, to the point it was time to give them a pre-qualification, they have made great strides, now it is time to find a home to own instead of keep paying rent. Very often when you get something for nothing, that is about what it is worth.

 

Who else do you know that needs my help?
