  2. WHAT MAKES UP A CREDIT SCORE? • Payment History 35% • Balances Carried 30% • Credit History 15% • Mix Of Accounts 10% • Inquiries 10%

  3. PAYMENT HISTORY – 35% • Bills Paid As Agreed • Most Recent 6 Months • Highest Weight On Highest Pay History • Mortgage • Biggest Payment

  4. BALANCES CARRIED – 30% • Keep Balances As Low As Possible • Outstanding Balance Versus Available Credit Affects Credit Score For example: Credit CardBalanceAvailable Credit Visa $10,000 $10,000 Visa $0 $10,000 • Leave Credit Card Balance As Is = Lower Credit Score • Spread Balance Between Existing Cards ($5,000 each) = Higher Credit Score * • Mortgage / Installment Less Of Factor

  5. CREDIT HISTORY – 15% • Longer Credit History = Higher Credit Score • Long Credit History Paid As Agreed / Positive Impact To Credit Score • Never Close Credit Accounts - Especially If Long History – Or Negative Impact To Credit Score

  6. MIX OF ACCOUNTS – 10% • Ideal To Have Installment & Revolving Accounts • Mortgage Loan • Auto Loan • 3 - 5 Credit Cards (More is OK too as long as your balance is not above 30% of the credit limit*) • HELOC Should Be Greater Than $40K Or May Report As Revolving Account Versus Mortgage

  7. INQUIRIES - 10% • Shopping Around? Pulling multiple reports for Mortgage and Auto loans within a 30 day period count only as 1 inquiry. If any additional reports are made after that 30 day window then it goes to a 14 day period in which any inquiries within a 14 day period count as 1 inquiry.* • Each Inquiry Averages 5 Points

  8. INQUIRIES THAT DO NOT HURT THE SCORE • Job Related • Insurance / Utilities • Account Review • Personal (www.annualcreditreport.com) and obtain free credit report) • Promotional (pre-approved offers in the mail)

  9. BLEMISHED CREDIT CAN BE COSTLY • Low Credit Score = Higher Interest Rate • Mortgage Loans • Credit Cards • Auto Loans • Insurance Premiums

  10. STEPS TO TAKE TO INCREASE CREDIT SCORE 100 POINTS • Pay Past Due Accounts • Get Rid Of Late Payments • Have Credit Limits Increased • Become An Authorized User • Do Not Close Old Accounts – Keep Active

  11. PAY PAST DUE ACCOUNTS • Pay All Accounts That Are Past Due and Bring the Account Current* • Past Due Accounts Can = 1 Day Late • Can Severely Hurt Credit Score* • May Negotiate a Payoff Balance with You* • Past Due Accounts Do Not Include: • Judgements • Collection Accounts

  12. HAVE LATE PAYMENTS REMOVED • Phone Creditor And Request Late Payments Be Removed • Be Persistent – Work Your Way Up The Ladder (Remember to get the names of the people you speak with)* Always Get A Letter That Documents: • Name / Address / Account Number • Specific Late To Be Removed • On Company Letterhead / Signed By Employee. Ask them to email you the letter today.*

  13. INCREASE CREDIT LIMITS • Every Six Months Request An Increase To Credit Limit On Credit Accounts • Have Creditor Base Increase On Credit History • If Creditor Must Pull Credit, Do Not Continue; Will Lower Credit Score

  14. BECOME AN AUTHORIZED USER • Ask A Relative Or Friend To Add You To Credit Account • Confirm The Following Items: • Current Balance Below 10% Of Limit • Good Payment History • No Risk As Credit Card Goes To Account Holder

  15. DO NOT CLOSE ACCOUNTS • Keep All Accounts Open • Use Old Accounts Periodically – Charge Small Amount - Pay off Immediately • Closing Accounts With A Long Credit History Will Hurt Credit Score

  16. SUMMARY • Borrow When You Do Not Need It • Keep Balance To Limit Ratio Low • When Creditor Removes Late And Provides Letter – Use Credit Rescore • Never Payoff A Collection / Judgment When Applying For A Mortgage Loan • Increasing Credit Score By 10 Points = Interest Savings of $100,000 Over 30 Years ($500K Mortgage Loan)
