Many first time homebuyers and landowners don’t know what escrow is and may not be inclined to ask. In addition to your monthly payment of principal and interest, you will be making an escrow payment for property taxes and Homeowner’s Association fees, if applicable. At the end of the year, Santa Cruz Properties will use the money in your Escrow Account to pay for your property taxes.

So you have subpar to bad credit. At Santa Cruz Properties, we don’t think a bad credit score should stop you from achieving your dreams. While we will do everything we can to help you, it’s always best to help yourself as well. Owning land is definitely a possibility, but make sure you’re taking the right steps.

  • Use your calendar
    • Every time you apply for credit, it can cause a small dip in your score for a year. This means if you’re going to apply for something with credit, make sure not to do it often.
  • Always pay bills on time
    • One of the best ways to improve your credit is by simply making monthly, on-time payments. If you’re bad about paying your bills or paying them on time, it can damage your credit and hurt your score.
  • Go direct
    • Most people are afraid to contact their creditors, but they may be one of your best bets at saving your credit.
