Madison, Wisconsin | Community Spotlight | Madison, WI Real Estate

Madison, the capital city of Wisconsin, is the second largest city in the state. Its downtown sits on an isthmus between lakes Mendota and Monona and is home to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The city's five lakes make it one of the more picturesque state capitals in the country.

The spring is when the outdoor Farmer's Market begins, where local farmers sell directly to consumers around the Capitol Square. We love the Henry Vilas Zoo, a 28-acre public zoo with no admission fee.

Kick-off the start of summer Memorial Day weekend at Brat Fest. Get on the water where you can kayak, canoe, paddleboard, fish, boat and ski. Grab a bicycle or a pair of sneakers to take the Lake Loop around Lake Monona and past the Monona Terrace for a picturesque 13-mile trip. Play golf at one of Madison’s five golf courses. Spend your evenings out on the town walking State Street for dinner, get drinks outside at the Memorial Union Terrace or to catch a performance at the Overture Cente ...

New Credit Score Model Launched

Fair Isaac Corp., the company behind the popular FICO credit score, announced the launch of its latest FICO 10 model on Jan. 23, that will start incorporating consumers’ debt levels into their scoring model.

Amber uses Credit Karma to monitor her accounts and score........it's FREE!

This comes as total household debt in the U.S. is on the rise and currently sits at about $13.95 trillion as of the end of 2019, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. That’s higher than the previous high of $12.68 trillion seen right before the 2008 financial crisis.

Those who fall behind on their loan payments, they are more likely to see a drop in their score. FICO also plans to flag consumers who sign up for personal loans, which are generally considered more risky since these are unsecured and typically do not require collateral like a car or a house.

The new scoring model will also likely create a wider gap between those who are considered good credit risk vs ...
