Today I had a conversation with a New York client and I had to explain to him that just because he has the financial reserves (savings) that does not mean that he should be buying everything simply because he can afford it.
I explained to him that 2023 is going to make or break a lot of people. And if he wants to remain in the position he is in 5 years from now he is going to have make even smarter moves with his money.
Three major credit bureaus — Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion — regularly collect information about your payment history, while your credit report contains additional details regarding your payment history, credit utilization ratio and any open and closed credit accounts.
The information in your credit report is used to calculate a three-digit credit score, which lenders then utilize to evaluate a borrower’s likelihood of defaulting on a loan.
By having a higher score, you’ll typically qualify for loans or credit products with lower interest rates and more favorable terms.
