In the market for a new home next year? With the new year just around the corner, that leaves you with precious little time to get your finances in order. Let’s explore a few tips that will help you get a jump on improving your credit score before the end of the year.

Grab A Fresh Copy

The first step is to order a fresh copy of your credit report from one of the major agencies. The Fair Credit Reporting Act allows you to access a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months. So, if you have not ordered a copy recently, it is time to do so. You can access this free service through AnnualCreditReport.com, which is a website recommended by the Federal Trade Commission.

Note that it’s not recommended to use a search engine to search for “free credit report” or similar search terms. There are many impostor websites looking to obtain your personal financial information for nefarious purposes. Instead, stick with the government-recommended website listed above.

Clean Up Anything Outstanding

Now that you have a copy of your credit report, it’s time to go through it, line-by-line. You should recognize every current and outstanding account in the report. Any balances owing should be in order and reflect how much you owe. It’s critical that you flag any mistakes or old debts that you have already paid in full. If you come across anything that shouldn’t be on your credit report, call the reporting agency to let them know. If necessary, they will assist you with challenging the issue.

Pay Down Those High-Interest Debts

The final tip in today’s guide is to prioritize your outstanding debts so that you can pay them off more efficiently. The essential debt payments are your mandatory minimums, which you need to pay to avoid being sent to a collection agency. From there, try to pay off your debts with the highest interest rates first. Getting these paid off faster means that over time, you’re spending less on interest payments. Moreover, you can use that extra cash to pay your debts down further.

    The team at Alliance Home Solutions were great! They reached out to me the same day I filled out the online form and explained their process and what they could do to help me. I had a home that I had been renting for some time and my last tenants left it a disaster. I couldn't afford to fix it up and so AHS made me a fair offer and closed within two weeks! Cash in hand baby! Thanks AHS
