Understanding the FICO Scoring Model Building good credit is a balancing act. If you have too much debt, then your scores will suffer. If you have no credit then your credit scores will suffer as well. There are 5 factors that determine your overall creditworthiness. Any of these five factors will affect your credit score either positively or negatively. Your credit report will show all 5 of these factors in what is called a tri-merge report. This report is produced by each of the major national credit bureaus. Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion all use versions of the Fair Isaac Co (FICO) scoring model to determine your score in this report. Most banks use this risk model for determining approvals. There are other scoring models available, but FICO is the standard with most creditors. K...

How Much Does It Cost You If You Choose To Do Nothing About Your Credit? The short answer is it will cost you your life; the life you should be living, the life you were meant to live, and the life you need to start living. Are you living with the emotional cost of bad credit?      The fear of going without because you are afraid to apply.      The embarrassment of being turned down for a new car, and being told you need to choose from among their used inventory.      The humiliation of trying to purchase new home furnishings and being told by the clerk that you'll have to pay cash.      The increasing sense of anxiety while waiting to find out if you've been approved.      The frustration of knowing that if you get approved you will pay a higher interest rate. Do your kids get to run o...

 Silverdale  Closed Transactions Month of November Thirty-six percent fewer closings in Silverdale last month than there were last year during the same time period.  Transactions closed much faster.  The average selling price was down by thirteen  percent.   Sellers are pricing their homes much more realistically as evidenced by the fact that they are conceding only eight percent of their original listing prices. Inventory in Silverdale is still good.  It's still a buyer's market. If you would like details of the home that closed in your neighborhood, call or email me.

  What is the chance of having short sale success is the question on most people’s mind. A successful short sale could be considered a success when the home owner sells his/her home before a foreclosure happens and walks away without a deficiency judgment from the lender. Short Sales are not uncommon to Banks and Lenders there are short sale and foreclosure statistics from Realty Trac that suggest distressed properties are one third of the listings for sale. In fact in some areas like Arizona and Las Vegas they are almost half of the sales. In fact Banks and Lenders are becoming proactive and mailing letters out to their customers explaining the short sale program. They have delegated entire offices and staff to Loss Mitigation. They want to take the quickest route to get the non perfor...
