Lower Your Debt and Maintain Your Credit during This Holiday Season

Lower Your Debt and Maintain your Credit during This Holiday Season Holiday season is right around the corner, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah, who doesn’t like gifts? This holiday season is far different from the rest; there is too much chatter about a new credit downgrade and the “fiscal cliff” which sums up to more credit restrictions for lines of credit and mortgages, and a probable recession down the road. At any time, your creditor can reduce your available line of credit; their decision is based upon your overall credit history and your total monthly debt that is reported to the credit bureaus.

Blooming Looming Inventory

Day to day, we see the actual losses that banks take on with foreclosures; furthermore, the shadow foreclosure inventory has not been accounted for. A number of potential clients who contacted us during the year had not paid their mortgages for 3-5 years, and their bank had not foreclosed on their property.

Question: How does the shadow foreclosure inventory affect me?
Answer: The shadow foreclosure inventory is unsettled debt, it affects the real estate recovery, housing prices will go up regardless, it generates additional credit restrictions for home purchases and refinances, and more inventories with less available financing will cause another real estate meltdown. Plus, the shadow foreclosure inventory is a domino effect to business lending and auto financing, creating a massive credit crunch. Maintaining your credit and reducing your debt in 2013 is very crucial for you to do,  lending will become more challenging for consumers who are in the mid to high 600(s) credit scores.

Question: How much longer will banks hold onto the shadow foreclosure inventory that is over 3-5 years old?
Answer: Not too long at all, a big wave of looming inventory is on its way, its estimated arrival is the first or second quarter or both of 2013. Where else would it go?

Question: I am renter, how does the shadow foreclosure inventory affect me?
Answer: The demand for renting than buying a home will cause rent prices to go up even further.

Don’t Get too Red on Black Friday

Your credit and debt are more important than ever before, they are key factors for your everyday life.  For some, Black Friday debt will take months and months to pay to pay off. Overextending your debt on Black Friday will reduce your credit scores. Before you make those big purchases with your credit cards this holiday season, take in account, your new debt will cost you more than your purchases.

Money doesn’t grow on trees, especially Yule trees; enjoy your holiday season with ease!
