*** a word from our sponsors ***
In this day and age it is wise to have good credit as most commodities, including mortgages and the like, can be bought on credit. Having bad credit is not going to get you anywhere and you don’t want that especially at a time when you need money the most, like in the case of emergencies.
How to have good credit? Well, one is to maintain a good credit score. The higher your score is, the higher the chances of you getting a great interest rate on your car loan, home loan or credit card. For instance, a score of 700+ makes you a “prime borrower” while a score of 500 or below will put you under the category of “special finance.” If you happen to have a low credit score, chances are credit cards are out of reach and you’ll be spending additional money to pay for the high interest rates which now apply to you.
In this case, getting credit help is one of your options. There are also several ways to do credit repair. Paying your bills on time and keeping your balances low are just a few of them. You can find more information on this at RMCN.
