If you are in need of credit repair, it is a good idea to first stop making any unnecessary requests for new credit. If you do need a new source of credit, research the likelihood of being approved. The reason for this is that each application for new credit will come with a small penalty on your credit score due to the fact that your credit report will be pulled by the creditor. Only apply for credit that you actually need and minimize your applications by applying only where you have a good chance of being approved.
The first step to getting your credit repaired is to order your credit reports. You need one from each of the three bureaus. If you have been denied credit recently, then you are entitled to a free copy. If you have not been denied, then you may have to pay for a copy to be mailed to you.
If one does not know what to do to repair their credit they should speak with a consultant or friend who is well educated in regards to credit if they do not want to have to pay for a consultant. The resulting advice can often be just what one needs to repair their credit.
Believe it or not, your overall credit rating also affects your auto insurance premiums. So if you want to find cheap, quality car insurance, one way you can save money is to tie up those loose ends with the creditors. Insurance is all about risk, and someone with bad credit naturally poses a larger risk. Fix your credit rating and you can save some real dough on your insurance.
When you are trying to repair your credit, do not get rid of your credit card. In fact, closing your credit card can actually hurt your credit as it makes you seem unreliable. Instead, keep your credit card open but try not to use it unless it is a dire emergency.
Every credit and loan application you submit causes an inquiry to show up on your credit report. Too many inquiries on your report will cause you to be deemed a credit risk because it looks like you are desperate for cash. Avoid applying for any loans or credit cards until you know exactly what the creditor needs to see to grant you a card or loan. Don’t be shy, most will be completely upfront with you if you ask.
