8 ways the new FICO scoring system benefits small business owners

8 ways the new FICO scoring system benefits small business owners

FICO Score 9 now available

By now, you’ve probably heard about the new FICO scoring system, called FICO Score 9 which changes how lenders look at your score and how they make lending decisions.

Brian Manson, Credit Manager at Balboa Capital notes that “FICO scores can affect small businessowners’ ability to secure business loans, lines of credit and equipment leasing programs.” For this critical reason, small business owners must be aware of how the new FICO scoring system impacts their bottom line.

Manson asserts, “Small business owners don’t have the luxury of a large corporation backing them financially, so they are the ones financing their operations.”

“Banks and financing companies will examine a business owner’s personal credit score and credit history when evaluating their his/her loan application,” Manson continues. “This is done to determine the business owner’s level of credit risk. A good FICO score presents business owners with a better chance at getting their loan or line of credit approved. Unfortunately, outstanding medical bills have hurt the credit scores of many small business owners nationwide.”

FICO’s updated scoring system now places less emphasis on unpaid medical bills, beginning this fall, which Manson shares in his own words below, the eight ways the new scoring benefits small business owners:

  1. Entrepreneurs and business owners who have outstanding medical debt will not have their credit scores penalized like they have been in years’ past.

2. Debt collections can last on a business owner’s credit report for up to seven years, but FICO will not include credit-score penalties if a medical bill has been paid or settled with collection agencies.

3. FICO estimates the average credit score of people with outstanding medical bills will improve 25 points, which could put business owners at or above the threshold required by their lender.

4. Business owners will also be able to secure loans and financing with lower interest rates because their scores will improve.

5. Business owners with medical debt will no longer be seen as a credit risk.

6. Debt collections can last on a business owner’s credit report for up to seven years.

7. FICO’s new scoring system will prepare a business owner for success when it comes time to apply for a loan, line of credit, or equipment lease.

8. Lenders will loan more money and business owners will secure more funding, and this will help the economy grow because money will be invested in small businesses.

BOLD Law: You Teach People How to Treat You

BOLD Law: You Teach People How to Treat You

 

 

Ever wished someone treated you differently? Maybe it was a friend who cancelled dinner plans at the last minute, or maybe a colleague took the sole credit on a task the two of you completed together. In either of the above examples, you could change the end result of hurt feelings or dissatisfaction in the future by following the BOLD Law of “You teach people how to treat you.”

The easiest way to follow this BOLD Law is by letting people know exactly what you expect of them and how you expect them to treat you. You could let your friend know that, because of your tight schedule, you need more notice if she won’t be able to meet you for dinner, and you could tell your colleague that shared work should receive shared credit.

BOLD is a Keller Williams Realty program which can be used in any aspect of your life! Learn how BOLD can teach you communication strategies to put this Law into practice and watch videos of inspirational stories of how BOLD changed people’s lives professionally and more importantly personally!

It’s 11/11….and here’s The Top 11 Reasons You Should List Your Home During The Holidays

Holiday-Proof-Your-Real-Estate-Business

The Top 11 Reasons You Should List Your Home During The Holidays

11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low!

10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year for a time convenient for you!

9. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days around the holidays!

8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture that market!

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!

6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a working week!

5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays!

3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money for you!

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you!

And the number One reason why you should list your home during the Holidays…..

1. People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!

Now after reading “The Top 11 Reasons You Should List Your Home During The Holidays” what are you waiting for???

Don’t miss out by waiting until the spring, list your home now and sell now!

Contact me today…and yes, I’m working all through the holiday season!!!
