Protecting Your Credit

One thing I tell every one of my clients after they purchase a home in Atlanta is that they are about to get inundated with credit card offers. Since their credit was good enough to buy a home, everyone is going to want to extend them credit.
Now with the Equifax debacle, protecting your credit has become more important than ever. And not actively protecting your credit could prove a costly move.
So, what are your options? You can pay for a credit monitoring service, freeze your credit, or put a fraud alert on your credit.
Here is a great site explaining the difference between a credit freeze and a fraud alert. Click Here.

As always, Clark Howard has given some good advice as well. Click Here.

I implore everyone to put this on the top of their priority list. The Equifax breach is a very big deal.
