What does your credit say about you?

Not knowing what your credit report says about your finances may cost you more when trying to obtain a mortgage. Even those who pay everything on time might have an unaddressed credit issue that is hurting their credit! It is possible for incorrect information to be reported on your credit report, and it is important to identify any issues and correct them before you apply for a mortgage.
