BUYERS: How To Find Out What Is In Your Credit Report!

If you’ve ever had a bank account, mortgage, credit card, car loan, or account with a retail store you will invariably have a credit rating.  Information in your credit rating for the most part comes from companies you have credit with, as well as from certain public records such as tax liens, bankruptcies, judgments and lawsuits.  It’s very important to know and understand your credit rating, How the information is compiled and of course How it affects your ability to acquire a loan for your new home.

Credit reports are usually divided into these sections:

  1. Potential Score Improvement (from either Planning or Error Detection).
  2. Specific Identification information about you.
  3. TriMerge Score Models (three FICO numbers).
  4. Information you have provided for the credit company.
  5. Your Credit History.
  6. Who has reviewed your Credit History.
  7. Detailed Contact Information for Creditors.
  8. Explanatory notes and comments.

Different states have different requirements and it is important that you check on what applies to you.  Massachusetts will NOT allow a Lender to give you the actual report. There are three major credit-reporting agencies, Trans Union, Experian and Equifax.

Your Real Estate Broker Roberta can recommend a reputable mortgage lender [email protected] who has the reputation of providing excellent service and good rates.  This lender will be able to immediately pull your credit report for your review and can make recommendations of how to make it better.  The better your credit score, the higher your credit rating will be.
