What's YOUR Great American Novel read like? The clues revealed within your Credit Report

What's YOUR Great American Novel read like?  
The clues revealed within your Credit Report

     We've all heard books referred to as a "great American
novel" ...  

     Books often mentioned in that vein are "The Great Gatsby", "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", or "To Kill a Mockingbird" ... each most likely introduced to you in a high school English class.  The authors of these great books offer us riveting stories regarding the mindset and lives of their characters.

     Much like the great novels referenced above, Credit Reports delivers much the same thing.  It reads much like a book ... a book that relates the daily habits of its main character, their actions, their decision-making abilities and philosophies, and the highs and lows of their lives.

     Think about it.  Your life is pretty  much revealed on your Credit Report ...  

     When were you born?  Where have you lived?  Are you employed?  Are you a committed money saver or spender?  And much much more ...
      School loans will lead any reader of your Credit Report to assume you pursued higher education.  Did you have times when you were unemployed?  Yep, that information will be there too.
     Have a favorite store?  I see you do!  Your account information is right there to see (with safeguards).  The jewelry company you like, the medical facility you utilize, your cell phone provider, the furniture store you bought that new sofa from ... clues of all that activity and more can be revealed on a Credit Report.

     Your account(s) history, Collections, a Foreclosure or Bankruptcy ... they're revealed as they've happened.  Even Inquiries made into new debt or extension of credit show in a special category.  (Time frames for reporting new debt to Credit Bureaus can vary from one Creditor to another.)

     Your car ... it couldn't be fixed one more time, could it?  How might I know that?  You went looking for a new car to replace it a month ago.  There are inquiries for auto financing that prove that right on your Credit Report.  All the ups and downs, the dramas and joys, how you think, how you live, the minutiae of your life ... clues to it all are left to be discovered on your Credit Report.   

     Does your Credit Report reveal you are in control of your finances?  That your financial philosophy is one based on savings and wise expenditures?  Or does it reveal your spending and debts control you and your life?

     I say the true "great American novel" is being written each and every day.  YOU are the author and have great say as to how the story line twists, turns, and ends ...

     Have you read and discovered in the last year what is being revealed on your Credit Report?  Are you thinking Buying or Refinancing a home soon ... or in the future?  Contact me today!  We'll run your Credit Report, so together we can work towards your successful home purchase or Refinance.

Property Addresses: Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...

“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.


Paper or Paperless billing? Which serves YOUR needs best?

Paper or Paperless billing?  Which serves YOUR needs best?

These days, companies are under pressure to go "green" and become more environmentally friendly.  As a result, an increasing number of businesses are offering their customers a paperless option with which to receive and pay their bills. 

There are obviously many positives to be found within these paperless services:

Trees are saved  Reduced postage costs  Less paper documentation to organize or save/storePossible rewards for switching to paperlessPayments can often be made/posted same-dayAutomated payments can be set-upMore
But I can tell you from my vantage point as a Chicagoland/IL/WI Mortgage Originator, there are also negatives to be found within paperless methods.  For some of my mortgage clients, the choice of going "paperless" just hasn't worked well.

 For some, an email or text reminder regarding payment of bills has not been enough. They NEED a paper billing to arrive in their mail. 

Their paper bil…
