10 Ways to Increase Your Credit Score Part 1

Your credit score–it’s one of the most important ways you have to gain financial power in the world today. Whereas once, everything was paid with cash, today’s world almost requires that you have access to credit in order to gain access to basic services. If you want to rent a car, buy a home with a mortgage, or get a personal loan in a medical emergency, you’re going to need credit to do it.
Pay Your Bills — On Time!
The number one rule of credit is to pay the bill when it’s due. Preferably, you want to pay it shortly before it is due to ensure that you create a good track record. The more responsible you appear, the more likely your creditor is to grant you additional credit down the road–something that can improve your score on its own.
Check for Errors Yearly
Checking your credit history is something that everyone should do–whether you’ve used credit in the past or not. The potential for credit errors can be surprisingly hig; ...

How to Negotiate with a Seller


When you are buying a home, there will be a period of negotiations. You love this home, and you want to get it under contract, so you need to know how to negotiate to pay the right amount for the home, and get it!
Talking to your agent is the first thing you need to do. Get on the same page and form a strategy. You need to discuss what you want, what you don’t want, and a price you are comfortable with. Once you have a strategy, all parties need to stick to it so when you are in the middle of negotiations, emotions do not get in the way.
If you have not already gotten a pre-approval letter from your lender, this is a must have. This shows the sellers that you are serious and have taken the steps to prepare to buy their home.
Next is to have your agent find out the seller’s desires. When are they looking to close? How negotiable are they? Is the home vacant? Did they have to move out of town? All of these things can alter your offering price and terms. Y; ...

Are You a Good Homebuyer?


If you are thinking of buying a home, it is important to be a good homebuyer. There are some tricks and tips that can give you the edge to make sellers want to take your offer!
The first and most important thing is to respect the seller. If they are still living in the home, make sure to work with them for the showing. When you get there, respect their items and their home rules. Some sellers request shoes to be taken off at the door; please do it. Make sure you don’t use the bathroom unless you have to, don’t sit on their furniture, and make sure your children are behaved and not running around their home.
The next tip is to go to your appointments. If you have an appointment to see a home, do not skip it. Emergencies do happen, so make sure to call your agent to keep them informed. A seller may have to leave the home, remove pets, and do extra cleaning for a showing, and if you don’t show up and don’t call, they might not be so accommodatin; ...

Tips to Sell Your Home Fast

You are ready to sell your home. You want it to sell as quickly as possible. So how do you do it? I have some tips to get your home sold fast!
The first thing you need to do is to start thinking like a buyer. If you were to walk into your home right now, what would you think? Is your furniture arranged oddly? Do you have magazines and books stacked on tables? Is everything tidy? Do your personal items take away from the charm of your home? The key is to streamline your home as much as possible. Only leave out the essentials and the least amount of personal items as possible.
Make it move-in ready. Most buyers want the home to be ready to move into with minimal, if any, alterations. Any chipped paint, fix it. Any brightly painted rooms, paint them a neutral color. Nail holes in the walls, fix them. These small things could make the difference in a buyer purchasing your home or the one down the street.
Price, price, price! Price your home right and it will sell faster.; ...

Stage Your Home

You have probably heard of staging your home. Did you dismiss it because you thought it might not be worth the hassle? Staging your home will be worth it, even if you do it yourself!
There are many professionals who will come and stage your home for you. They are experienced in this and if your home is vacant, they will come with their own furnishings! If you are still living in the home and decide to stage it yourself, here are some tips.
The most important thing to do is remain impartial! You purchased this home, you loved it and now you want the buyer to love it as much as you do. The potential buyers do not have any memories in the home yet, so it is important to try to step back to when you bought it, and figure out what drew you to the home then.
Go through your home room by room and decide if you have too many items in there. If your rooms look cluttered, start decluttering. This doesn’t mean you need to get rid of the items, but it might be a good time to start; ...
