Credit Repair Services Can Be the Key to Home Ownership

Credit repair works really well. But credit repair alone may not get someone’s credit score to where they need it to be to qualify for a mortgage. The right type and number of positive trade lines is also necessary. Along with the right debt to limit ratios. If you want the job done right the first time, you want other credit repair services!

Most people that are excited about owning a home don’t see past buying a home. They forget about property taxes, maintenance costs, and other expenses that they didn’t have as a renter. A few years down the road the newness of owning a home wears off. Now they get concerned about other things like college expenses and retirement.

Credit Score Basics – How to Get a Good Credit Score

The first step in learning the credit score basics is to learn what makes up a credit score. Although each credit bureau uses a somewhat different scoring model (FICO, FICO II, Vantage) what constitutes a credit score is represented by this infographic:

Credit Score Basics
What Makes Up a Credit Score

When people want to improve their credit score they mostly focus on removing derogatory or negative accounts from their credit report. They may try it themselves. Then after little or no results they call a credit repair company for help. Credit repair, or what we call credit restoration, is a good thing to do. Removing derogatory accounts will increase your score.

Obsolete Accounts– accounts older than 7 years from the date of last activity should be deleted automatically but sometimes they are not. We use federal law to get these items removed for you.

Accounts with Erroneous or Outdated Information– If these are negative accounts, removing them will increase your score. We also use federal law do get these items updated or removed.

Unverifiable or Unverified Accounts– These are accounts that the creditor of record cannot or chooses not to verify. These items will be removed via federal law if challenged in the correct manner.

Our company has been providing the fastest, most effective results in the credit repair industry since 2004.

However, that only impacts 35% of your credit score. There are other credit score basics to learn.

We can help you in every area of your credit score basics

Therefore, we provide other services that impact 100% of your credit score.

Let’s tackle the next biggest percentage, your amounts owed (30%)

If you can pay down the amounts you owe to 30% of your credit limit that will increase your credit score. For instance, if you have a credit card with a $1,000 limit, pay down the balance to $300.  You may not think you can based on your budget but we have an online budget and debt payoff tool that will show you how to pay these accounts down. And, it will show you how to do that with the same amount of money you currently spend on your bills.

Next, the Types of Credit and New Credit (20%)

Sometimes it’s hard to understand that if you don’t have the right types of open credit accounts (revolving, installment) such as a car loan, mortgage, and credit cards you can’t have an optimum credit score. In other words, you have to have credit to have a good credit score. And you need new credit from time to time especially if you do not have enough open lines of credit.

We help people establish new lines of credit with a secured credit card program from Synovus Bank and a program that will add a positive rental history to your Transunion credit report. And, we will make other recommendations to you as well.

Lastly, Length of Credit History (15%)

This one just takes time. We have to get you the right types of credit, remove negative items, and let it season. Over time your credit score will go up based on the length of credit history.

  • Unless you have a way of checking your credit reports and credit score on your own you do not see the impact of their work real time. Therefore you don’t know if what they are doing is working for you.

Not Just Credit Repair, Credit Restoration

Credit repair, the process of utilizing federal law to remove inaccurate, erroneous and obsolete items from a consumer credit report, has been around for decades. However, the industry is evolving. And our company is leading the way. We offer not just credit repair, we offer credit restoration.

Not Just Credit Repair

Credit Repair vs. Credit Restoration

What’s the difference? Credit scores are based on a number of variables. Therefore there are other ways of helping a consumer increase their credit score. We look at a client’s credit history and make recommendations of perhaps opening new trade lines or accounts that will positively affect their score. Paying down existing balances can have a dramatic affect on scores.

Not just credit repair, credit restoration

We educate clients and give them tools to help maintain and protect their credit as well as their identity, family, and finances.  We offer an array of services called the Protection Plan. And, we charge less than other companies charge for credit repair alone. It’s just $89 per month with one time account set up fee of $99.

Even if you just compare our credit repair service against others we have some big differences. We attempt to remove all derogatory or negative items immediately. Other companies slow the process down only so they can charge the client more fees.

We also provide our clients with online credit monitoring and identity theft protection with LifeLock. It’s all part of the package for the same price other companies charge for a slower credit repair process.

All of this is why major real estate brokers, mortgage companies, and banks choose to work with us so their clients get the best and fastest results possible. They choose us because they are looking for fast results for their clients. The choice is clear. If you need to increase your credit score, get in touch with us today!

Best Credit Repair Services Tampa

 

Should You Choose a Local Credit Repair Company in Tampa, St.Pete, Clearwater or a Large National Company?

In most cases you should find a local credit repair specialist. However, you should also be aware that the credit repair industry in not regulated as heavily as other industries. There are no licenses required and many of those listed on the internet are not companies per se. They are one person operations that have “fixed” their own credit perhaps and decide to try and make a go of it doing it for others. They do not necessarily know about and follow the proper state and federal laws that are in place. Their resources and expertise are limited and you must check their history and track record to be sure they’ll be in business moving forward.

Working with a large, national company does give you more ability to check their background and know that they have been around for a while and will continue to be in business. However, they typically have less than stellar customer service. What can you do if you don’t get results? Is there someone you can talk to?

The Solution – To get the best credit repair service Tampa, ERA Credit Services is both local and national. With a credit repair office in Clearwater and owners that live in Largo you are provided the personal customer service you should expect from a local company. ERA Credit Services is a credit repair company that is a member of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce. You also can have confidence that ERA Credit Services will get you results because they are backed by a national company, Financial Education Services, that has 13 years experience and a credit repair company with an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. You get the best of both worlds.

Credit Repair Pricing

Of course, this is a major deciding factor in choosing the best credit repair services Tampa credit or St. Petersburg, Clearwater or any other city in the country. In the credit repair industry there are 2 pricing models.

Monthly Payments for Credit Repair Only – Many credit repair service companies charge a set up fee and then a monthly fee. This can appear to be the best way to go. However, typically companies that charge this way do not address all your items right away. They will address them one or two at a time dragging out the length of time it takes to get you a result. Be sure to ask if all items are addressed right away.

Pay Per Deletion – Companies using this pricing model charge you when they have removed items from your credit report. This actually sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? However, you are usually charged a set up fee in order to pull your credit and give you an estimate of the fees you’ll pay. Companies using this model typically charge between $25 and $500 per item. The difference in price depends on the type of item. For example, a cell phone bill might be $25. However, a bankruptcy or short sale could be as much as $500 per item. And, it’s per item per credit bureau! So, you actually get charged 3 times for removing an item from all 3 bureaus. Therefore, some items could be as much as $1,500.

ERA Credit Services Pricing – ERA Credit Services provides the top credit repair service in the country. They work on all 3 major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and Transunion), address all your derogatory trade lines immediately (first results usually within 45 days), and any type of account including bankruptcy, foreclosure, short sale, judgments, liens, credit card charge offs, medical bills, student loans, late payments and more. Your starting fee is a one-time set up fee of $99.00 and just $89.00 a month with no minimum time period.

ERA Credit Repair Services Tampa

– We Just Had a Birthday!
Credit Repair Services TampaIt’s amazing how quickly a year goes by. ERA Credit Services just celebrated one year here in the Tampa Bay area. After taking San Diego and southern California by storm starting in 2012 and becoming the best of the best credit repair companies on the west coast, it was time to build credit repair services Tampa.

Before we made this big decision we looked for credit repair companies in Tampa, FL. Not only that, but fast credit repair services in Tampa. Just as we discovered 4 years ago in San Diego, we didn’t find any. So, we set out to provide credit report repair services in Tampa.

But we looked further in all of Florida and saw that the entire state was in need of a reputable company with a lengthy track record and documented results for Florida consumers. So, we set our goals even higher to become the #1 Florida credit repair company.

So, today if someone that needs help removing derogatory items from their credit report to increase their credit score searches on Google, Bing or Yahoo for “credit repair services tampa”, as an example they’ll find us on page 1 most likely. That’s great and we are so thankful for the impact we have already made in the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area.

This question may come to mind.

How can a credit restoration company come to Florida and surpass other companies that have been here for years?

The answer lies in our business model and how we provide service.

Most credit repair services Tampa, and credit repair companies in Florida and around the country deal directly with the credit reporting agencies and bypass communication with the client. Not only is this not best for the client, but it does not follow the process outlined by federal law.

Our clients, including our Florida credit repair clients, receive an online account listing all the negative items affecting their credit score and can use this account to follow the progress. They are in the loop every step of the way. We also send correspondence to the client for their signature before it goes to the credit bureaus. This guarantees the most effective process and ensures that our client will receive updated credit reports directly to their home.

Perhaps the most important factor with regard to clients results and what allows us to be amongst the best credit restoration companies in the country is that we dispute every item for the client immediately. The fact is that most companies do not do this. They only dispute 1 or 2 items every 45 to 60 days which lengthens the process and fattens the fees they charge the client.

The fact that our goal is to remove as many items as possible as quickly as possible not only gives us the ability to provide fast credit repair services in Tampa, it allows us to work with real estate agents and brokers, mortgage companies and banks because they want the quickest credit restoration results for their clients as well.

So we say thank you Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Largo. You have recognized our efforts to become the best Florida credit repair company. We will continue to work hard to earn and keep your trust.
