What Is The Best Way To Fix A Bad Credit Rating

Millions of Americans have blemishes on their credit files that prevent them from getting auto loans, mortgages or credit cards. Unfortunately many people in their efforts to improve their credit fall prey to unscrupulous credit repair scams. The truth is that it is almost impossible to remove accurate negative information from a credit report.

Correcting past credit mistakes and improving your credit score takes time, commitment and effort and can easily be accomplished by paying your bills on time and following the following steps.

Start by focusing on getting installment loans paid on time every time. Installment loans are loans with fixed interest rates and are normally associated with big ticket items such as home loans, autoloans and student loans. .These types of loans are weighed more heavily than the credit cards when calculating credit scores.

Your goal is to pay these accounts on time and never be more than 30 days late making a payment for at least the next year to qualify for auto loans/credit cards and for the next two years to qualify for a mortgage.

Determining who gets paid when for credit score/rating purposes is as follows:

Student Loans, Mortgages and Auto Loans Credit Cards and other revolving debt, Non-reported debts such as utilities and cell phones

Non-reported debts will not show as late payments on your credit report – however, if you do not pay them or make alternative payment arrangements within 90 days, they will go into “collection” and will then show up as a bad debt on your credit report.

If you have open collection accounts on your credit report, almost all lenders will want to see them cleared up before they lend you money. Collection accounts also hit your credit score hard when they are new, you can see your credit score drop up to 100 points if you have one account in collection.

Generally, the only exceptions made are for medical bills, most lenders tend to over look these types of collections and will not required them paid off.

Paying off accounts that are in collection takes some planning , start with the most recent accounts first these are the ones that affect your credit score the most. Always contact the collection agency directly and attempt to negotiate a lower payment. Almost every collection agent out there will take fifty cents on the dollar -or less- if it means you can pay the account off now.

Negotiate with your creditors to get the best deal you can by telling them you only have X amount and can send it now, there may be some back and forth, and you may have to speak with the collection manager. Once you have negotiated a deal, always have the collection agency send you the deal in writing before you send any money. If you do not get the deal in writing before you send the money there is an excellent chance that the collection agency will just deduct the funds from the amount you owe and tell you that that they have no record of the deal and that you owe the balance outstanding on the account.

Once you have paid the account, save a copy of the deal and a copy of your cancelled check. After 60 days obtain a copy of your credit report to ensure that the collection agency updated your file. In most cases they usually fail to update your file and you will have to send a copy of the deal to the credit reporting agency. They will update your file and the debt will show on your credit file as “Settled for less than full amount”. This makes no difference to your credit score though, as far as your credit score is concerned the debt has been settled.

Keep in mind that a bad debt will “fall off” your report in 7 years. They no longer report it after that time. If the debt is close to the seven year mark do not pay it off, rather use your money to pay down your credit card debt.

Credit Card debt looks best on your credit report when it is paid on time and the account has been open longer than one year. The amount owing on any credit card should not be more 30 percent of the credit limit. For example if you have a credit card with a $5000 credit limit you should never owe more than $1500 on the card..

Any extra cash should be used to pay bad collection accounts, then pay down your highest balance credit cards then pay down your installment loand

None of these things will save you money. These are merely tactics to quickly improve your credit rating. Then you can worry about how best to use your money.

Huge thing to remember: check your report for incorrect items. Any lender who has denied you credit must legally provide you with a copy of the report they used to turn you down. Usually this is in the denial letter somewhere with 800 number to call credit agency to get report.

Finally, if you have to declare bankruptcy you should be aware that the bankruptcy will hurt your score badly for the first couple of years, there is nothing you can do but wait that out. Each lender has a different criteria for handling bankruptcy. It will usually be easier to get a mortgage than a credit card or auto loan after a bankruptcy. Bankruptcies will fall off your credit report in 7 years, too.

5 Reasons To Skip College

When I was younger, the plan for my future was pretty straightforward. You go to high school to learn, get good grades, and get into a good college. You go to college to get good grades and then get a good job. After that, just circle the mouse wheel until retirement. OK, that last part about the wheel was my own addition but that basically was my “job” as a kid. That plan worked for me and it’s the path many people have walked with great success, but it’s not the only path.

With the government looking at additional regulation on the for-profit colleges, I started to wonder again whether college is “worth it.” In general, it is. However, recently with all these for-profit schools, a lot of people are going to college unnecessarily. They’re being promised things that the schools can’t deliver. They’re being sold something they don’t need, depending on what they want to do, and they’re only buying it because we’ve put “college” on a pedestal. In this Devil’s Advocate post, I explain why you might want to skip college.

Most Colleges Don’t Teach Skill Trades

Colleges are good at teaching things best learned in a classroom or a laboratory. Philosophy, chemistry, physics, mathematics, psychology, and such. They are not as good at teaching skill trades like being a mechanic or a welder or a fisherman. For skill trades, you are better off going the route of an apprenticeship or a vocational school that specializes in that skill trade.

If you go to college and get a degree in business only to graduate and become a fisherman, you’re wasting your money. That’s not to say a degree in business is bad for someone who is a car mechanic, but you don’t need to spend all that money and four years in a classroom when all the skills you need to learn are best learned hands on in a shop. A fisherman should, if he or she chooses to, go back to school for a business degree if it makes sense. But he or she should not go simply because everyone says he or she should go.

Not Everyone Finishes College

This entire post was inspired by this article in the New York Times that is advocating that some people skip college. One of the scariest bits of information they shared was a projection from the Department of Education. “Perhaps no more than half of those who began a four-year bachelor’s degree program in the fall of 2006 will get that degree within six years…”

Let’s say 50% of people complete the program within 6 years, that means 50% of people don’t finish and are paying for something that they won’t ever receive. That also means that a percentage of the people who do finish will be overpaying, since it will take them longer than the stated four years. What’s amazing about that statistic is that it screams one pivotal idea – not everyone is suited for college.

The problem is you can’t expect kids to know this because they haven’t been to college. They haven’t charted out their futures. That’s why you really need to rely on an honest and capable high school guidance counselor to help you decide what you should actually do.

Opportunity Cost of 4 Years

The average cost of college in 2009-2010 is $26,273 a year for a private college, $7,020 for a public college according to College Board. That means over four years you’ll have spent over $100,000 at a private school and $28,000 at a public school. When you consider the opportunity cost of not working for four years, coupled with the $100k/$28k actual cost, a college graduate is very much deep in the financial hole.

According to data from U.S. Census Bureau, the average high school graduate makes $30,400 a year. The average bachelor’s degree makes $52,200. How long does it take for the college graduate to catch up considering they’ve paid $100,000+ and haven’t been pulling a salary for four years (totaling $121,200). It takes a long time.

You Can’t Afford It

Student loan debt figures are at all time highs. Why is it socially acceptable to tell people “you can’t afford that Masterati” or “you can’t buy a 10 bedroom home” when they can’t, but not OK to say the same about college? Why is credit card debt so bad when student loan debt is good? People are graduating with a hundred thousand dollar student loan debts, which can’t be discharged in bankruptcy, and saddling themselves with multi-hundred dollar loan payments.

You should not go to college if you cannot afford it. This would be different if we weren’t surrounded by horror stories of student loan debt. These are stories of graduates who can’t find jobs and must meet a small mortgage payment each month. You hear about a philosophy major with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects. The reality is that they shouldn’t have gone to that school to pursue that major… it wasn’t worth it and they couldn’t afford it.

You Don’t Want To

Remember when you were a kid and your parents told you to eat your vegetables? You probably fought them but you eventually ate them. You did it because your parents knew what was good for you and you, as a kid, didn’t. Perhaps they’re doing the same thing with college, telling you to go because it’s the right thing to do. They want you to go to college because it does, in many cases, give you an advantage in the workforce. They want you to go because they can tell their friends that you are going to college. But you should only go if you feel like that’s the best option for you.

You shouldn’t go to college because your parents want you to, or because your guidance counselor wants you to, or because your best friend is going and you want to be with him or her. You should go, and put yourself on the hook for tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, if it’s the right decision for you.
