What Is 1 Percentage Point Among Friends?
A while back our partners at National Credit Care sent us some shocking information. We know that someone with a relatively high credit score is more likely to receive the most aggressive terms compared to someone who has relatively average credit. We see this almost every day. What we don’t see is the potential savings over time that a client could earn with a little more focus and attention to their credit score. Lets go over some fun math!
Sample Scores & Rates from MyFico.com on a 30 year fixed mortgage loan for $250,000
The Difference Could Be Worth Half Of A Million Dollars or More!
In this example, the difference between what a person with a 639 score pays in interest versus what a person with a 700 score pays in interest is $78,000 for this one loan. That is a lot of money all by itself, but now consider all the other loans that one typically pays for in a lifetime; auto loans, credit cards, bank loans, etc. That could easily be a difference of over $100,000 because of the higher rates associated with those loans. If you have $178,000 to invest over 30 years, you could conservatively earn more than $325,000 with that money over that time period. Add that to the amount you paid in additional interest and a slightly lower credit score over 30 years has cost you at least half of a million dollars!

A collection account reported to your credit bureau and is negatively impacting your credit score. You may have worked out a payment plan with the company or negotiated to pay off the account for less than the balance owed. These companies have little incentive to fairly and accurately report to your credit bureaus. This is a violation of the Truth in Lending Act, however, violations are rarely prosecuted.
When our client’s sign up to have their credit scores maximized with our credit repair services, one of the first actions our credit repair executives take is to aggressively seek a permanent deletion of the account as it pertains to the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The way the bureaus score collection accounts makes this the best option to pursue because even updating the information on this tradeline could potentially lower your score, even if you are paying as agreed. The most effective way to increase one’s credit score that is being negatively impacted by a collection agency is to remove that tradeline from your records altogether.
Do You Have Collection Accounts On Your Bureau?
Don’t live with collection accounts bringing your credit scores down. Your credit score is your first, best option to secure capital and assets. It is too important to be left in the hands of people working at collections agencies. Contact us and we will work to delete these negative accounts and increase your credit score.
