American consumers are waking up to the fact that going through life with a low credit score and having poor financial health, is going to impact their quality of life almost as much as their physical health. It seems that everyone wants to know how to ‘fix my credit’ and recover from the mistakes of their past.
The good news is you can recover and restore your credit score and financial health in two ways.
The first is to remove, as much as possible, negative items from your credit reports with Experian, Equifax and Transunion, the 3 major credit reporting agencies. There is a specific process governed by federal law that can assist in removing erroneous, obsolete and unverified items from a consumer credit report.
By law, a consumer has the right to fix my credit themselves through the major credit reporting agencies (CRA’s). However, this process is a major expense to the bureaus and does not generate them revenue. Therefore, within the boundaries of the law, they have put up some roadblocks for consumers in making this process accessible while at the same time making it seem very accessible.
That is why credit restoration companies exist. To help consumers navigate through the process and take the burden of time and expertise off consumers. Just like many things we can do ourselves such as work on our own cars, replace our own hot water heaters, etc., it just makes sense to pay someone else who has more expertise to fix my credit for us. So, removing negative or derogatory items from our credit reports is one way of improving our score. And, that is always the first step in improving our credit score.
Fix My Credit – What Else Can be Done Other Than Credit Repair?
Whether we do credit repair ourselves or work with a professional, credit repair impacts just 35% of our credit score. What about the other 65%? Amounts owed, types of credit, length of credit history, and new credit all impact our credit score.
We educate people about how to fix their credit & offer services and solutions.
That is where our company has concentrated its efforts over the past few years and now offers a suite of services at a very affordable rate (just $89/month) to not only restore a consumers score by attempting to remove negative items but educate them on how to proactively increase their score as well.
