Market Kinetix LLC, Houston, has introduced Deal Maker, which the company calls "the only scientific analysis tool of its kind" that provides a customized action plan on how borrowers can achieve a target credit score.Previously, loan originators and borrowers had no tool for predicting how scores could change as a result of certain corrective actions, the company said. "Most originators have no idea how credit scores are derived and how the individual elements in a person’s credit history affect the final score," said Ron Litt, spokesman for Market Kinetix. ".... Deal Maker takes guesswork out of the equation and replaces it with clear, step-by-step instructions on how to correct any borrower's credit score, resulting in the desired increase." If a borrower is below the minimum score for a particular loan product, the broker can enter a target credit score and Deal Maker will produce a Mortgage Action Plan that spells out the steps needed to raise the borrower to that score. The recommendations include immediate, short-term, and long-term actions, along with a point value for each.
