Mortgage Monday: A Simple Tool for Improving Your Credit Score

mortgage insuranceThis week on the Mortgage Monday show Jim Cardinal and Alexis Meeks discuss how improving your credit score through a simple tool and small actions can have a immediate impact on the quality of mortgage you can receive.

It’s important to note right off the top that anyone selling you quick-fix solutions to improving your credit score needs to be vetted properly.  Quick-fix solutions to improving your credit score are the most likely to backfire without a doubt.

What Jim discusses in this video is NOT quick-fix solutions but rather a few tools which can help you recognize small items within your credit profile that if corrected can have create a small improvement to your credit score quickly.  If you stopped there that would be it.

Obviously if you continued to monitor your credit and take corrective actions your credit score would continue to improve.

Jim recommends Credit Pro by CBC for helping determine what small actions can be taken today to improve your credit score.

Credit isn’t just important to getting mortgage, it’s also a rating factor in determining NY home insurance premiums.
