When you want to buy a home, you know that good credit will be necessary. You may have heard some things about your credit score that just arenít true. Read on to set the record straight on some of the most significant misconceptions about credit. 


Checking Your Credit Only Gives You Knowledge


Checking your credit score or report will not lower your score. The only way checking a score is damaging to a credit score is in the form of credit inquiries. This is when a lender, employer, or other merchant checks your credit in order for you to either gain employment or open a new line of credit. You have the right to review your score without it being impacted. 


You Shouldnít Carry Balances


The best way to keep a high credit score is to use a credit card and pay the balance off in full each month. Itís a false belief that carrying a balance is an excellent way to increase your credit score. You need a low debt level to maintain a good credit score. 


Your Age And Income Have Nothing To Do With Your Score


Itís natural that older people who have a longer credit history have a better shot a good credit score, but your age has nothing to do with your score. It all depends on when you established credit. Some people started their credit histories early because their parents opened accounts for them. Others needed to wait awhile before opening their first credit card account. 


Your income also is not a factor in determining your credit score. It may be true that if you have a higher income, itís easier to stay out of debt, but the amount of money you make has no direct impact on your score. 


You Cannot Access Your Credit Score For Free


You have a legal right to obtain a free copy of your credit report once a year but, your credit score isn't included in this report. There are free services that are outside of your credit report that will give you your credit rating, but you need to search for them. Itís a good idea to check your credit report periodically, but you should also know your score especially if you're getting ready to make a big purchase such as buying a home.


Your Credit Matters More Than You Think


While you know your credit score matters when you head to get a home loan, you may not know just how many entities take your credit into account when you apply for them. Some things you may do where your credit score matters:


Apply for a job

Apply for a credit card

Rent an apartment

Sign up for phone and Internet services

Get other utilities in your home


Your credit history gives a picture to the world to let them know if youíre financially stressed. If you have gone through rough patches, there are always ways to bring your score up. If you had a judgment ruled against you in a lawsuit, for example, that would only appear on your credit report for a certain number of years. Lenders will often allow you to explain bumps in your credit report as well. Understanding credit is half the battle to a good score!

The kitchen is the life of almost every home in the country today. From forging relationships to creating loving memories, thereís a lot that goes on here apart from momís roast turkey and spaghetti meatloaf. Thatís all the more reason you should invest in regular kitchen upgrades. If you are going to have conversations here, you might as well have it in style and comfort. Check out this list for a few kitchen upgrades you should consider this year.

  1. Add a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets. This can totally change the way your kitchen looks. You may also decide to change the paint job in the room too to give it an even fresher look. If painting is too much hassle, reface your old cabinets with a new layer of peel and stick veneer. 
  2. Remove the doors of your cabinets. If you are more adventurous, you can decide to do away entirely with the doors on your cabinet. Your cramped kitchen will look a lot roomier than it actually is.
  3. Replace your light fixtures. Who says you canít have fancy chandeliers in the kitchen? Get rid of the old fluorescent lamps and install some pendants and other sophisticated lighting fixtures to give your kitchen some more panache. You should also consider putting up some under-cabinet lighting too. That will add some extra glow.
  4. Replace your kitchen sink and faucets. Call your plumber and install a new sink in your kitchen. It will definitely give your favorite place a whole new look. You can switch from your old stiff-necked faucet to a pull-down faucet for more room in the sink too.
  5. Replace the surface of your countertops. A thousand stains and knife marks later, your countertop probably looks like that a shipís kitchen. Resurfacing it is something that you can do by yourself if you want to. Not sure you are good enough? Start out with the island countertop, that way you test your skills on a small scale.
  6. Create a new backsplash. There are so many backsplash options for you to consider. If a tile backsplash looks like itís more than you can handle, you can try one made out of a solid plain color. Want to try something a bit different? Use a wallpaper instead. For more backsplash options check out some of the peel-and-stick kits available to most home improvement stores.

Now itís your turn! Go out and find your next great kitchen, then make it happen! If you want to be sure youíre improving the value of your home, be sure to ask your real estate agent for their favorite ideas.

If you plan to sell your house in the near future, now may be a great time to host a garage sale. That way, you can get rid of excess items, declutter your house and earn extra cash at the same time.

Ultimately, hosting a successful garage sale can be easy Ė here are three best practices to help you get ready for a garage sale.

1. Organize Your Inventory

A garage sale provides an excellent opportunity to sell a broad range of items Ė everything from kitchen appliances to gym equipment. As such, you'll want to sort through your belongings and separate must-keep items from those you can live without.

Organize belongings based on where they go in a home Ė you'll be glad you did. This will enable you to plan ahead for how you'll showcase various items during your garage sale.

Moreover, if you find some items are no longer usable, you should get rid of them altogether. Dispose of any damaged items, and you can immediately remove clutter from your residence.

2. Price Your Items Competitively

One person's junk is another person's treasure, and if you understand the true value of your belongings, you'll be able to price them competitively during a garage sale.

If you plan to sell electronics, jewelry or other high-end items at your garage sale, it often pays to perform research to learn about the true value of these items. Performing an online search of an item will help you see how various sellers around the globe are pricing the same item. Or, you can always contact local retailers directly for expert pricing insights as well.

In addition, consider the age and condition of an item before you price it. If an item looks brand new and performs great, you may be able to earn a significant profit from it. On the other hand, if an item shows signs of aging, you may want to lower your pricing expectations.

3. Promote Your Garage Sale to the Right Audience

Create flyers that you can post around your neighborhood to promote your garage sale. These flyers should include information about the date, time and location of your garage sale, thereby making it easy for those who see the flyers to find your event.

Don't forget to post details about your garage sale online too. Share information about your garage sale with family members and friends on social networks, and you should no trouble stirring up plenty of interest in your event.

Lastly, if you're planning to sell your house and need help getting your residence show-ready, you may want to consult with a real estate agent.

A real estate agent can offer expert tips to help you declutter your residence and ensure that your house is an attractive option to homebuyers. Furthermore, a real estate agent may even be able to help you prep for a garage sale, increasing the likelihood that you can make this event an instant success.
