How to Turn Your Debts into Wealth

How's this for a new perspective...

Rather than seeing your debts as a problem, what if they could be an opportunity?

With a little knowledge, ingenuity, and discipline you can transform those debts into wealth!

Here are 6 Tips to Shift from Debt to Financial Freedom:

  1. Find out exactly how many debts you have.

    • Make a list of all your loans, credit cards, and monthly payments. Request a copy of your credit report and check it against your list.
  2. Make a budget.

    • Determine which expenses can be cut back a little to create extra funds to pay down your debts. Pay off your highest interest debts (i.e. credit cards) first.
  3. Always exceed minimum payments.

    • Minimum credit card payments are designed to keep you perpetually in debt. Pay as much as you can afford, and slowly work towards paying off the entire balance every month.
  4. Consider debt consolidation.

    • As your local mortgage advisor, we can help determine if you can save money by refinancing your mortgage to pay down higher-interest debts.
  5. Pay down your mortgage.

    • Once your consumer debts are under control and your interest payments are vastly reduced, use that extra money to make extra payments on your mortgage.
  6. Invest for the future.

    • With a smaller (or non-existent) mortgage, you'll have ample funds to start investing. Consider purchasing a revenue property that will earn ongoing rental income and asset appreciation.
