How long will it take to repair my credit?

The amount of time it takes is different for every person’s situation. When you sign up for our service, one of the first steps we take is conducting a full credit report analysis for you. One of the things we’ll discuss with you will be the length of time it may take to resolve your individual credit issues.

Our clients typically start seeing results in 45-60 days. Because everyone’s case is different, some of our client’s goals are completed in that time, and others can take 3 to 6 months or longer. It really depends on how bad your credit currently is and the number of negative items that need to be addressed in the credit profile.

Successfully repairing credit requires persistence, patience and experience. This is where our expertise saves you valuable time. To effectively dispute incorrect information on your credit report, the key is knowing the ‘valid disputes’ and understanding the methods used by the credit bureaus in order to submit personalized disputes that meet their requirements and warrant a timely response.

The progress of your case will depend on your timely participation (sending your credit reports on a timely basis), the nature of your case, and the level of credit bureau cooperation.

Can’t I repair my credit myself for free?

Of course you could. In fact, most of our clients have unsuccessfully tried to fix their credit on their own prior to hiring us. Most people either don’t have the time it takes to effectively succeed at repairing their own credit, or they lack the expertise and knowledge needed to do it effectively.

Depending on your time, patience, perseverance, and complexity of your dispute, you can successfully dispute inaccurate credit report items on your own. However, credit bureaus’ strategies and tactics often make the process very time consuming, overly burdensome, and ineffective for the average person. There’s a lot more to effective credit repair than just writing letters.

Do you guarantee to give me perfect credit?

No company can guarantee they’ll be able to wipe everything off your credit, especially if you have legitimate debts on your credit report. Any company that makes such a claim is lying to you. It’s even against the law for a credit repair company to make such a claim. A few years ago, it was scams like these that forced the government to crack down on dozens of credit repair companies nationwide who were ripping thousands of consumers off with these bogus claims and fake guarantees

How are credit scores affected during the repair process?

As we are engaged in the dispute process with the credit bureaus, your score may change periodically. When disputing ‘negative’ information on your credit report, the credit bureaus will remove the item(s) in question until it is verified, modified, or deleted.

Since we are disputing ‘negative’ items on your report, your score may increase during the process because the negative item is removed until it is verified. This temporary score is not necessarily an indicator of your final credit score. (Disputing personal information such as an incorrect address or date of birth will not affect your credit score.)

Upon completion of the dispute process, your credit report will then show the new score. Keep in mind each credit bureau has different criteria for determining your score, which is why your score will vary from bureau to bureau.

How long before I can apply for new credit and what are my rights?

Each creditor has different requirements and receives their credit report updates on different schedules. Therefore, your responses from creditors will vary.

You have the right to be considered fairly, without discrimination when applying for credit. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) ensures that all consumers are given an equal chance to obtain credit. This doesn’t mean every consumer who applies for credit will receive it. Factors such as income, expenses, debt, and credit history are considerations for creditworthiness.

The law protects you when you deal with any creditor who regularly extends credit, including banks, small loan and finance companies, retail and department stores, credit card companies, and credit unions.

As your negative credit report item(s) is being disputed, your scores can fluctuate, so it is in your best interest to wait until the disputing process is complete before you apply for additional credit.

Should I file bankruptcy?

It would be irresponsible for anyone to recommend bankruptcy to you without an in-depth, qualified evaluation of your situation. Many bankruptcy lawyers offer a free initial consultation, so if you are seriously considering it, shop around and meet with a few lawyers to see which firm you feel would most effectively serve your needs.

Filing for bankruptcy is a legal proceeding that’s available to a person in severe financial distress. For qualified applicants, bankruptcy can mean a fresh financial start and an opportunity to build a secure future. But remember, bankruptcy does have far-reaching and long-lasting effects and should be considered only as a last resort. For best results, contact a qualified bankruptcy attorney in your area.

Should I pay off accounts?

Paying an outstanding collection doesn’t remove it from your credit report. Most creditors will leave a previously negative account sitting on your credit report for up to 7 years, even after you pay it. And even though you paid it, it still hurts your score.

It’s usually not wise to start paying off old accounts as your primary credit repair strategy. Even after you pay off all your old accounts, you’ll still be left with bad credit and low scores. Let us put our strategies to work to not only get old debts settled but also removed from your credit reports so your scores will increase. Feel free to discuss your options with your credit advisor for the best possible solution to your situation.

Does paying my bills restore my bad credit?

You would think that would be true, but the credit reporting system doesn’t work that way.

When you pay an old debt, the negative credit item doesn’t disappear. Once paid, it will usually be reflected on your credit report as a paid delinquency, charge off or collection (which is still very negative and will pull your scores down).

You won’t get very far paying old debts unless you also work to restore your credit at the same time. We’ll assist you with ensuring these items are removed from your report whenever possible.

Are you affiliated with a network marketing company that sells credit repair?

Absolutely Not! We are not affiliated with any of the credit repair scams, network marketing, or MLM companies pretending to do credit repair. We know which companies you’re likely referring to and have seen the hundreds of complaints and bbb reports on these companies and their shady business practices.

Our company was founded by real estate brokers who began offering credit repair to our clients years ago to help them qualify to buy homes. Because of our experience helping clients repair credit issues in order to qualify for mortgages, we know exactly what it takes to fix credit issues of all types.

We have been licensed real estate professionals since 2001 and our primary goals are still the same, helping our clients repair credit-related issues from the past so they can walk into a better financial future.
