BenchMark Credit Score is a program developed by Weichert Realtors BenchMark & BenchMark Mortgage to assist those people who have the desire and financial ability to purchase a home but cannot do so due to their credit scores.
BenchMark Credit Score focuses on four key components:
We begin with Credit education. Once you understand the credit scoring system, you can work within the parameters of that system and will develop good payment habits that will benefit you for a lifetime.
We have software programs which will accurately predict what your scores will be in one month, six months or one year. Additionally we can simulate the effect that certain actions such as removing a collection item or paying a past due account will have on your score. We can also tell you the optimum balance for all of your accounts to maximize your credit scores.
Performance is where you must participate. We will put together an action plan which may include paying down balances, or opening new accounts to get your scores to the highest possible level.
Monitoring results is the final component. We will follow up with you regularly to ensure that you are performing as advised and seeing results as expected.
We can enroll you in our program in person, via phone or via webinar. Please call us at 901-202-2000 to get started on the path to homeownership.
The program does work. The BenchMark Companies have been working with clients for years helping them to improve their credit scores.
BenchMark Credit Score has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. .
Anyone can participate. The only requirement is that you cannot be in an active bankruptcy.
Your credit profile is as individual as your fingerprint. We have seen score increases in as little as 30 to 45 days...

Mr H is a 44 year old sales representative. His wife, Mrs H, is a 33 year old retail manager. Neither of them have owned a home before but wanted to purchase.
Mr H had a good credit history and a 690 score but Mrs H had never established any credit and had no scores. She had tried several times to open credit accounts but was turned down due to her lack of credit history.
They spoke to a realtor who referred them to our program in June. We enrolled her in the program and by August, she had established credit thru the program and her scores were high enough to make her eligible for financing.
They closed on their home at the end of September. Mr & Mrs H’s StoryCollierville, TN
Dr P is an emergency room physician. He relocated to Memphis from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
When he made the decision to relocate, he was prequalified by a local bank to build a custom home valued at over $700,000.
As the home neared completion, the bank re-pulled his credit to update their file for closing. They discovered that several bills had been overlooked during his move and were reporting 30 days late on his credit. His score had dropped to a 580 and he was turned down by the bank for financing.
His builder referred him to our program. He enrolled, followed our advice quickly and within TEN DAYS his score was back up to a 688 and he was able to close on his home on schedule. Dr P’s StoryGermantown, TN
Mrs C is the Director of Nursing for a health & rehabilitation facility. She tried to get
prequalified to purchase a home but was disappointed to find that her credit score was a 526.

Ms W is a 20 year old customer service representative. She had been prequalified through a local lender who had presented her with a subprime adjustable rate loan program with a high rate. This made her unable to qualify for the home she wanted.
Her agent referred her to us to see if we could help. We found that she was only a few points shy of being able to qualify for a fixed rate conforming loan at a much lower rate. She followed our advice and her score increased. She was able to qualify for a program at a rate that was over 4% lower than what she was originally quoted. That lowered her payment enough so that she was able to qualify for the home she wanted.
She closed on her home and continued to work on her credit. She has since contacted her agent about purchasing an investment property. Ms W’s StoryMemphis, TN

program in June.
By November, his score was high enough to qualify for VA financing. They wrote a
contract and celebrated Christmas in their new home. Mr & Mrs M’s StoryMemphis, TN
