Chesterfield County Real Estate: Credit WORRIES

Posted By @ Nov 12th 2011 9:37pm In: Blog Posts by Mike May

Have you been thinking about buying Chesterfield county real estate, but are worried about your credit score?

Here are a couple of things you need to consider when dealing with your credit score:

  • Start by avoiding multiple credit inquiries and reduce your debt-to-income ratio. Your credit score is one of the most important factors used to decide whether you will qualify for a major loan and what its terms will be. Every day, many would-be borrowers are denied loans, while consumers with strong credit histories are getting great rates on mortgages, car loans and student loans.

Understanding how your credit score is formulated is your first step when applying for a loan.  Don’t open new credit card accounts right before applying for a home or car loan. Having too much available credit can lower your score. Also, the longer you have been at your current job, the better this reflects on your qualifications.

If you plan on applying for a loan for your dream Chesterfield county real estate and will be switching jobs soon, apply before you start your new job.  Learn tips that will keep your credit score improving while keeping you in financial shape!
