Is credit repair worth it? Why?
To know whether credit repair is worth it, you just have to look at what your credit impacts. These days, it seems like it’s just about everything. When you start realizing how far it goes, it’s easy to do a little math. Not having ideal credit can cost you thousands and thousands of dollars over the course of a home or car loan. It can keep you from getting insurance coverage or even a job. It can make even everyday needs and decisions more difficult. When you compare this to the confidence and assurance of feeling in control of your credit situation and the opportunities that brings, the value of credit repair can seem pretty priceless.
Do you offer debt settlement?
Total Source Consulting Services focuses upon how your credit reports look. In other words, they work to help you safeguard your financial reputation so that you can get the credit you deserve. On the other hand, debt settlement companies offer something very different – they negotiate with your creditors to create payment plans. Sadly, sometimes those debt negotiators can make your credit reports look even worse. Credit repair is unique. Rather than settling your debts, they work to help ensure that problematic negative items on your credit report are substantiated, relevant, accurate and reported fairly. And they work hard to help get them removed when those standards are not met. With Total Source Consulting Services, the answer’s in the name: they’re the experts in credit repair and in helping to defend your financial reputation and overall creditworthiness.
