Just one quick real estate tip today…. If you’re thinking of buying in the next year (or two) and haven’t seen a copy of your credit report lately, I encourage you to get your free credit report. You can do so online at www.AnnualCreditReport.com. There are other sites, including “FreeCreditReport.com” with really cute commercials, like this one.
But don’t get drawn in by the name and other marketing efforts, this is a site that wants your paid business, and will do their best to get it. The federal government credited the law that once per year you are entitled to a free credit report, and the web site designated for this is www.AnnualCreditReport.com. Even though you can get a complete credit report via this site, you can not get a free credit score.
I hope this quick little post keeps you from getting drawn to the wrong web site and spending money on something that is available to you, for free.
