Some Tips about Credit
- Credit history is used as a screening tool for jobs, insurance rates, homes, cars – just about anything you may want to purchase.
- If you credit history is poor, you may pay up to 3% or more for a loan than someone with excellent credit. For example, on a $100,000, 30-year fixed rate mortgage that translates into $85,000 more over the life of the loan.
- Without access to credit, people either do without major purchases such as cars, washing machines and furniture until they can save enough to make the purchase, or they obtain the item at a higher than usual rate.
