Request your free credit report

Have you ordered your free credit report this year?

As mandated by Federal Law, you are entitled to receive a free copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies -- Experian, Equifax and TransUnion -- once each year. This is a great way to help ensure that there are not significant errors reported in your credit history that can adversely affect your ability to establish credit or borrow money when you need to.

Be aware, however, that there are several similarly-named, commercial websites that charge for these same services. In fact, one is called "FreeCreditReport.com" (you may have seen their TV commercials), so it is easily confused with the free site, which is: https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp Although this site also offers services for fee, you DO NOT HAVE TO PAY for the basic reports.

The link to the free site is also conveniently included in my "List of Helpful Links" in the right-hand column of my main blog page.

Open House this evening, 4-7P

Come see 2 bedroom, townhome-style condo in Westwood for just $229K. This is a 1014 sq. ft., 2-story end unit, conveniently located at 8424 25th Av SW #D, just blocks away from Westwood Village. Cozy up to the wood-burning brick fireplace with its slate hearth. Unique, loft-style 2nd bedroom takes advantage of vaulted ceilings. Fully fenced, private patio. Please stop by betwen 4-7 this evening to say hi and collect your gift bag filled with valuable coupons, including one for a Husky Deli ice cream cone! Yum!

Shorewood Cosmetic Fixer Open Today

A Shorewood view home for $475K! Come see this 4 bdrm/2 bath cosmetic fixer for yourself! Today, from 1-4, I will be holding open a 1947 brick home with 2,740 sq. ft. of living space on a 9,083 sq. ft. lot. This one-owner home at 12252 Shorewood Dr. SW was on the market last year and "sold" but the buyer's financing fell through just days before closing. In preparation of that sale, the owners made some significant modifications and improvements, so even if you saw the home last time round, it's worth another look.
