Best Ways to Improve Your Credit Score

 

When you first consider buying a home, you will need to be aware of your credit score. The higher your credit score, the lower your interest rate on your mortgage may be. It’s important to keep an eye on your credit score regularly, but even more so when you are potentially purchasing a home soon. Keep reading to find out the best ways to improve your credit score!

 

Pay On Time

 

No bank or private lender wants to see that you have missed payments in the past. This will indicate to them a lack of discipline as well as poor financial management, even if that is not the case. We recommend that you make payments on time every single month, no matter what it takes. Typically, you can schedule payments to ensure you never miss one.

 

Close Accounts

 

Many people leave accounts open even after they take out all the money from them. Forgetting to close an account could cost you. Many banks will have a minimum average balance, and if there is no money in your account, your bank may start putting you in debt. This can affect your credit score. We also recommend it you have finished paying off a loan, get a loan closure certificate as proof.

 

Monitor All Accounts

 

Do you have a joint account with a spouse or a child? It’s important to monitor these daily to ensure that everything is in order. This can be difficult if the person is outside of your immediate family, however, it’s crucial for when it comes to your credit score.  

 

Negotiate

 

Unfortunately, problems arise and sometimes we are not able to pay our credit card bill one month. If this is rare, however, it has happened to you this month, try negotiating with your bank.

 

Here are some simply and quick ways you can improve your credit score. Have you had any luck with other ways? Comment them below!

Best Tips to Sell A Home FAST

 

Most homeowners that are looking to sell their home they hope that it sells right away. Let’s be honest, time is money. Having your home sit on the market is the last thing you want. So keep reading to find out some easy tips to make sure that your house sells FAST!

 

Curb Appeal

 

The first impression is so important. A potential buyer may simply be driving past your home and notice it. In fact, how your home looks from the outside can boost your home sale by up to 17%. You can do simple changes to increase your home’s curb appeal. Some of these are landscaping such as adding shrubs and trees, painting and decluttering anything in the front yard.

 

Staging

 

Staring your home will increase the appeal of the home dramatically. On average, a home will sell 88% faster with the home properly staged. Although staging will be more expensive, it will hopefully pay off when your home sells quickly.

 

Brighten It Up

 

It seems depressing to walk into a room that’s dark and dreary. Make sure that you improve the lighting in your home so that it looks exciting and happy. Adding a wall mirror will also amplify light. We also recommend having your curtains open to allow more natural light to flow through your home.

 

Get People Talking

 

Make sure that you start the buzz about your home even before it hits the market. Let your friends know over social media, let neighbors know and send a mass email to all your contacts.  These are all easy and FREE ways to get people talking in advance.

 

Have you heard of any other ways? We would love to hear them! Comment below!

Expenses Still Occurring With Cash Sales

 

Whether you won the lottery, received a large inheritance or are simply a wonderful saver, buying a home with cash will allow you to the freedom of making NO mortgage payments monthly. Sellers also love cash orders because that means they do not have to wait for your leader to approve the funding. Is seems like a win-win situation, doesn’t it? Yes and No. There are still other costs that occur when you have a home that people overlook. Keep reading to find out what expenses you are still responsible for when you buy a home with cash.

 

Closing costs

 

When purchasing a home, there are still closing costs that offer. Some of these include a transfer to charge, title insurance, processing and appraisal, home inspection. Even when you are purchasing a home with cash, there is still a fee for these items. 

 

Property taxes

 

Unfortunately, property taxes are always going to be there even if your home is fully paid off. Remember to include paying property taxes in your monthly budget.

 

Homeowners insurance

 

The cost of your homeowner’s insurance will depend on the size as well as the value of your home, the location, your deductible and finally your coverage. Make sure to speak with a current insurer about the home and area you’ll be moving to and receive a few different insurance quotes.

 

Maintenance

 

Things break, it’s inevitable. That is why it is a good idea for every homeowner to put aside some money every month for unexpected maintenance.

 

HOA fees

 

If you’re buying a home in a community, it will probably have a monthly or annual HOE fee. This number can vary from only a few dollars per month to hundreds. These fees are paid by everyone in the community and go towards maintenance of common areas and any perks your community may have such as a pool.

 

Utilities

 

Utilities such as electric. Gas. Water, sewer and trash should always have been factored into your monthly budget. To get a more exact amount, make sure to ask your realtor prior to purchasing a home. Your utility bills can fluctuate from season to season, so it is important to keep this in mind if you are moving to a new climate.
