This is a product of Metro Brokers specifically for new home buyers to start now to understand their credit score and to fix any blemishes ahead of trying to qualify for a mortgage. My pal, Cynthia Norcia, has it on her site under the buyers tab. There is a charge to get the report, but it tells you specific action steps to take to improve your score. (Note, I get no $ for recommending this.)

I love a good quote and there are 3 on my wall right now:
“Don’t sacrifice what you want most for what you want now.” ~ Unknown (I wish I knew!)
“[Your name], today, be the person of your dreams. See life through her eyes. Make decisions with her mind. Let every thought, word, and action come from her perspective, as if you had already arrived, and just watch how 2015 warps into the kind of year you talk and laugh about forever and ever and ever…. Peace, love, and green M&Ms ~ The Universe” (www.tut.com) (Is that a great message to start your day with or what?)
“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed, but with what is still possible for you to do.” ~ Pope John XXIII (Plunge forward, imperfect ones! “The beginning of a new day is a wondrous gift. It is a blank page, containing nothing and yet filled with possibilities.” ~ Derek Lin)
I also have a print of Marianne Williamson’s Our Deepest Fear. (You have to scroll way to the bottom on her website to find it.) It is so beautiful I want to cry every time I read it.
And here’s a Tana’s Tip: “View a spending plan as a framework for helping you get everything that you ever dreamed of and a way of eliminating all of the “trash and trinkets” that are taking away from your big dreams.”
