BUYING A HOME WHEN YOU HAVE BAD CREDIT
If you have ever applied for credit, you already know how much your credit score affects your finances.The amount of money you qualify for and the interest you will be charged are tightly linked to the single three digit number that is your credit score. As a result, your credit score likely ends up dictating the size and location of your home, the type of car you drive, and the money you have leftover for vacations or other luxuries.
If you have a low credit score, you will have a more difficult time getting a loan and the loans you do qualify for will weigh you down with high interest rates. Compared to people with good credit scores, you will end up paying more money per month just to pay off a loan of the same value.
Not only will a low credit score limit your ability to get approved for credit, but with increasing regularity, it can affect other aspects of you life. For example, many employers now request a copy of your credit reports when you apply for a job. Statistics show that credit scores correlate with trustworthiness so employers will use your credit score as a way of making a decision about your character.
In addition, in their quest to perfectly quantify their risk, insurance companies are beginning to incorporate credit scores into their insurance premium rates. The lower the credit score, the higher premiums they will require for coverage.
What People Are Saying
My credit score is now a 730 and I was able to purchase a home for my family.
I cannot believe that I am a homeowner! I never thought this day would come.
Thank you so much you made my dreams come true!
My divorce was terrible and I could not image myself rebuilding my credit after what had happen.
All I saw was bills on top of bills and I finally picked up the phone and reached out to Square
One Credit Management and they were so great. Thank you so much.
Because of Square One I no longer have to worry about my car breaking
down and paying mechanics to fix it. They got my score up, I lease a car
now and I have a safe reliable car for me and my kids.
