Can you recommend a credit repair company?
Tried consolidation on my own and am curious about credit repair and credit repair companies.
Do you recommend any particular credit repair company after completion of your program?
The CRN program typically does not require credit repair upon completion. The debts that are settled are no longer reporting a balance owed which has one of the needed impacts to begin to improve your credit. The effect of zero balance reporting has been immediate for some of our members and can take some time for others.
You can read debt relief options and your credit score for more details about how your credit reports are impacted from settling for less than full balance.
This site contains many pages of content with an outline of methods to rebuild credit while implementing a debt settlement strategy and credit building tools for after your settlements are complete.
The best resource for credit repair is you.
There are not many recommendable credit repair companies in our view. Sure there are outfits like Lexington Law, DSI Solutions, Sky Blue credit Repair Services, National Credit Fixers and others, but they will do nothing for you that you cannot do for yourself. You can often do a better job at building credit yourself, than by hiring someone to attempt to repair your credit for you.
If you were to pin me down about who I would recommend working with a cagey experienced mortgage broker or loan officer when you are trying to bring your score up to buy a home; a small company that personalizes the experience; and someone who does not charge too much or for too long.
Some people are just not up to the task of credit repair on their own, and most of these companies do not charge overly much in a one off situation, but they do try to charge you for too long in my opinion. Be sure to have realistic expectations if you are disputing negative items on your credit that are supposed to be there. It is a long shot to begin with.
