How long has Sweep Strategies been in business? Sweep Strategies has been helping clients achieve their financial goals since 2009. Why have I not heard of a program like this before? There are a number of reasons. First of all Sweep Strategies is not considered a traditional financial program, and most financial strategies that are commonly known are most likely the traditional ones. Secondly, we don’t advertise via traditional means such as TV, radio, and internet; we advertise via the word of mouth of our current client base. Lastly, sweep accounts at the consumer level are more common in countries such as the UK, Australia, and New Zealand but not so much here in the United States. What if I don’t have a mortgage? Again, remember that Sweep Strategies is not a mortgage program. Some of our clients have mortgages but many do not. Our strategies will help you save time and money on non-mortgage debts as well. That way if and when you eventually obtain a mortgage you should be in a better position financially up front. Then you will be one step ahead and ready to potentially save even more time and money on your new mortgage if that is your goal. I’ve heard that “mortgage acceleration” programs are often scams. Is this true?. It depends. First of all Sweep Strategies is not simply a mortgage acceleration program. Second of all we don’t just provide a software to follow like some programs do. We provide an education as well as the necessary coaching to help ensure our clients’ success. We cannot speak on behalf of other companies who provide mortgage acceleration strategies, we can only stand confidently behind our education and coaching. Do I need to have a good credit score in order to take advantage of the program? Having a good credit score definitely helps, but we have also helped plenty of clients who didn’t have good credit when they enrolled with Sweep. Furthermore, we feel that solid credit is an important factor in a person’s overall financial health so we ensure that our strategies are in line with this. Will I be required to refinance my mortgage? Definitely not. In fact, during our Introduction Presentation we will discuss the pros and cons of refinancing with or without utilizing the Sweep program. After seeing the Intro, a Sweep Instructor can run your numbers in a one-on-one setting to help you make a decision that is best for you. Do I need to qualify for a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) in order to use the program? Definitely not. A HELOC can work great with our strategies but it is not required. A Sweep Instructor can discuss other product options with you during your one-on-one after seeing an Introductory Presentation. If my monthly expenses are typically more than my monthly income can I still take advantage of the program? It’s important for you to sit down with a Sweep Strategies Instructor who can go over your monthly finances with you before determining whether or not you can take advantage of the program. Even if your monthly expenses are currently more than your monthly income that doesn’t mean you don’t qualify. We will be able to determine and explain in full detail whether or not you qualify for the program. If I just make extra principal payments to my mortgage or other debts won’t that accomplish the same thing? You can always make extra principal payments to your debts and this should result in saving time and money on interest. However we feel strongly that our strategies are highly effective at not only saving time and money but also maximizing cash flow without the downsides of simply making extra principal payments.
