Do Credit Repair Programs Really Work?

To many in the real estate industry, credit is the most important thing that you can have. For most people you can’t buy a house without credit. You pay higher interest rates with poor credit. You also pay more for other things like insurance and financing appliances with bad credit. So what do you do if you had some mistakes in your past and you need to fix your credit?

Many people are turning to professional credit repair programs. If you search on the internet for credit repair, a million different companies show up and they promise to do everything for you in order to repair your credit. Many people that are eager to buy a house often spend money on these programs in hopes that their credit will get high enough for them to take advantage of the current interest rates as well as to qualify to buy a home.

In my business I have looked into many of these programs and while some of these programs offer legitimate help for repairing your credit, none of them do any

Are You Committing Financial Infidelity?

Shame plays a large part when it comes to financial infidelity. Sometimes finances simply spiral out of control, and it’s not uncommon to hide these debts and expenditures from a partner. In fact, it is estimated that around six-million Americans are guilty of financial infidelity in some way, shape or form, so if you have told a white lie about your spending or have over-spent on your credit card, trust me, you are far from alone.

But the problem with hiding financial information from your significant other is that it can lead to marital and quite possibly legal problems in the future. Whether those problems spiral into something like divorce (financial reasons are one of the top reasons why couples get divorced) or whether you will leave a partner with a massive debt when you pass away, nothing beneficial can come from hiding your debts from your partner.

Personal Finances Is All About Breaking Bad Habits And Creating New Ones

People are often tempted to give unsolicited advice to others about the best way to manage finances. You’ll come across ideas that work and get you places, but often people are offering up such generalized advice. Trying to put together bits of information and use it in a meaningful way is not usually the best plan, as some of the information may be flawed and other parts confusing.

How can you take good care of your money and your finances so that you do not end up frittering away your savings on things you don’t need?

Generally, the problem is that most people lack a good understanding of just how important saving for the future is. Most people are going to do everything else with their money first before they even think about saving. Although saving in this way is better than not saving at all, it is in fact a highly ineffective way to build any kind of financial independence or security.

Is Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s Move to Reduce Capital Gains Taxes Naive or Genius?

When I heard the news yesterday, I nearly fell off my chair, not because it’s a bad idea, but the timing in my humble opinion could not be worse. The Treasury Secretary is studying the ramifications of reducing capital gains taxes on investments like stocks, bonds and real estate, by taking into account inflation before levying taxes on investors selling those assets. Capital gains currently are figured by subtracting original asset purchase prices from current sale prices without adjusting for inflation. Obviously, such a move would be seen as favoring the rich who have more assets to sell and would thereby benefit most from such a proposal. In addition, at least in the short run, naysayers contend that the move would further increase our already obscene and growing Government debt, which nobody thinks is a good idea. However, proponents of the proposal would argue that reducing capital gains would in the medium to longer term increase economic activity and ultimately lead to

Why Consider A Bankruptcy Alternative, or Non-Bankruptcy Financial Solution?

Nobody wants to find himself or herself in the position of facing harsh financial realities. Mounting debts and obligations, a growing sense of stress and anxiety about what to do, and being unable to meet all of the demands you’re facing.

When Is It Time to Consider Filing Bankruptcy?

In today’s economy many Americans are still trying to avoid filing bankruptcy at all cost. Many people have this idea that recovery is right around the corner and everything will go back to normal. No one seems to think that this might be the new normal. Unemployment has now been close to 8% for five years and it doesn’t appear to be getting better anytime soon. Currently, 48 million American families are receiving food stamps. This has increased from 27 million back in 2008. As the government is talking about raising taxes, small businesses are talking about letting more people go and downsizing. To me this appears like we will be seeing many more people in line at the bankruptcy court. With QE infinity in full swing and the Dow reaching all-time highs the media keeps beating the drum of a full recovery. In reality, American families are struggling to make ends meet. With QE pushing money out of the banks, banks are once again increasing the available balances out to co

Small businesses have financing as a major factor in keeping their businesses afloat and sometime getting funding for the same proves to be most beneficial for them. Small Business Administration, SBA, helps piece it together for the small businesses. It offers them the funding that they need to operate the businesses and even grow them.
