Why Is It important!
Your credit is the most important thing you have other than your breathe. There are three types of people in this world. There are those who have excellent credit. Those who have OK credit and those who have bad or no credit. Yes each of the above individuals has there own trials to deal with. Let us start by defining what each of the above can and can not do.
Someone with excellent credit can get away with literally anything. The will get approved for new loans, they will get approved for a new car and even a business line of credit. The sky is the limit. The only thing they are lacking is the know-how to go along with the credit. Once they know how to tap into these sources, anything is possible.
A person with good to OK credit are on the border line. The may not always get approved for loans, business lines of credit and/or car loans. For such people it is a bit harder to get the thing they need because of what is on their crdit report. Here is a list of somethings that may decrease your credit score. Too many inquirees on you credit within a short time spand (usually 12 in 6 months). Late payment of bills and credit cards. Identity theft and many more. That is why it is important to obtain a copy of your credit report at least once a year. You must then Review it and clear up any thing that does not belong to you.
A person(s) with Bad or no Credit are in the same shoes. Having bad Credit is the same as having no credit. A person with bad credit will have to work three times as hard to get approved for a loan. The person(S) with no credit will have to put up some securities to get the loan. These securities can be in the form of cash (known as a secured loan). Other securities is a lien on somthing of value like a home or a car. After establishing or restablishing credit, It becomes easier for the individual to get credit without any securities.
To keep your credit in good standards, one must constantly pay all bills on time or before time. Then you must pay more than the minimum due to keep your balances on the decline. Do not co-sign for anyone other than your spouse. Review your credit report and challenge anything that is not related to you.
