Is my money safe in a bank?

During troubling economic times, friends and family may advise you to withdraw cash from your bank because it’s safer. The truth is there’s truly no safer place to keep your money than a bank. That’s because it’s protected by the FDIC.

Should you consider a HELOC?

From additional purchasing power to debt-free peace of mind, a Home Equity Line of Credit can provide you with the financing power to thrive. 

Tips to improve your credit score.

Is your credit score in need of a boost? You can’t raise your score overnight. But there are a few things you can start doing now to make a positive impact in just a few months.
 

Understanding your credit score.

It’s not just three digits: your credit score indicates how well you manage your debt. It’s designed to represent your credit risk: in other words, an at-a-glance indication of how likely you are to pay your bills on time.

Deciding to buy or rent.

Buying a home is a rewarding experience. You derive a great deal of personal satisfaction from owning a home. Homeownership allows you to build up your personal net worth over time. Traditionally, long-term increases in housing prices nationwide make homeownership a relatively attractive investment.

 

Planning for your finances.

Every stage of life has financial implications—from planning for a new family member, to planning for retirement and everything in between. A strong financial plan, complete with goals and budgeting can set you on the right path toward a healthy financial future.
