Bad credit doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t get credit; you just can’t get credit at a good rate.The interest rates you will have to pay are sky high inasmuch as you had some financial adversity in the past. In this article I will present to you three ways for repairing your credit.The blueprint that is best for you will depend on the severity of your financial problems.
The first problem most people face is incorrect data on your credit report. If you have acquired a copy of your credit report from the three credit bureaus, and you find that there is a adverse entry from past lenders. Suppose this data is wrong. It has been reported that you still have a balance, but you know you paid this loan off. Fixing this problem is really easy. You just need to write a letter to the credit bureaus and send them proof that you paid the loan off.
It might surprise you that if you have over draft fees from your bank,you like others face another problem. Belief it or not,draft fees from your bank, can be a serious problem for your credit file. I know your bank probably encourages you to take more assets out of your account than you actually have in there. After all, they get a fee every time that you over draft. But be attentive, not only do some banks charge an overdraft fee, some may report you to the credit bureaus. It would be so easy for me to suggest that you check your balance before you withdraw your riches but that is easier said than done. It is easier to make sure your bank doesn’t automatically give you bounce protection. This way if you don’t have the cash reserves in your account, you can’t get money,no fees and no adverse report.
The third problem you may encounter with your credit is your line of credit is too low and lenders wont touch you with a ten foot pole. If you have had pass credit problems,there is a good chance lenders will keep their distance from you. You are a risk, as far as they are concerned. One way you can begin to rebuild your credit and have a chance of a higher credit line is by getting a merchandise card. This card will give you a line of credit that is associated with a particular store, or vender. Usaully you buy something by putting a percent down and finance the balance. Even though you will get a subprime rate your credit line is going to be reported to the credit bureaus. If your credit limit is $6000 and you finance something for $500,this is will increase you high line of credit very quickly. Keep your balance low to show creditors that you can handle credit once again.
Without a doubt if you want to improve life and enjoy many financial advantages you must improve your credit score.
