After reviewing lists of New Year’s resolutions from popular financial magazines and blogs, one that frequently pops up is checking your credit report. It’s not uncommon to find errors from one or more of the three credit reporting agencies, meaning if you’re not looking, an error could be damaging your credit score.
Even though you see numerous ones advertised as “free”, the only source for your free credit reports as authorized by Federal Law is http://www.annualcreditreport.com. You can get a free copy of your credit report every 12 months from each credit reporting company (Experian, Equifax, and Transunion).
So add this to your list of things to do!
At this time of year, lots of publications come out with their “best book of the year” lists. A book that shows up on numerous lists of best business books is “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City”.
Evicted” immerses readers in the lives of families and individuals trapped in — or thriving off — the private-rental market for the poor, a brutal world in which landlords have all the power and tenants feel all the pain.
This book looks like an interesting read and calls to mind the recent articles in the Spartanburg Herald Journal on affordable housing. Check out your copy of “Evicted” from your Spartanburg County Public Libraries.
