Do You Have Time For Credit Repair?

Written by: Kristy Welsh

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - 10/26/2011) Many people say they don't have time for credit repair but they do. Credit repair only takes about two to four hours a month.

The New York Times estimated the average American watched 142 hours of TV a month in 2008. "You can certainly give up some TV time to save you the estimated repair fees of an average $90 per month," says Kristy Welsh. "Total average time to fix your credit is about four to eight months," adds Welsh. "Think of the savings."

Welsh further emphasizes that the credit repair process is not difficult to do or to understand. It consists of:

  1. Understanding the process.
  2. Getting your credit report.
  3. Writing dispute letters.
  4. Tracking the progress of your efforts.
  5. Re-disputing items which remain on your credit report.
