Start by Checking Your Credit Score

If you want to find ways to raise your credit score so you can take out a car loan with your local Mount Vernon dealership you should first check your credit score through a reputable credit bureau such as Transunion or Equifax. Assess how you used credit in the past and create a plan to pay off your debts incrementally.

Tackle Your Current Debts

Keep your credit card spending at 30% or below the card’s credit limit. Using your credit card to pay off one recurring bill is a good way to make sure you have the money set aside to pay off the card on time. Slowly paying off any current bills or debts is a great way to raise your credit score over time without making you stretch your wallet too thin.

Limit New Credit Applications

Limit the number of credit card and loan applications you fill out. You won’t look reliable to a finance officer if you have too many outstanding balances at other credit institutions. While a new credit card or loan is technically a way to help to increase your credit score, doing this at a higher rate in a short time frame will make you look less reliable.

How to Get a Better Credit Score When You Have No Credit

No credit score? You can get a better credit score with no credit history in a number of ways. The most common is by opening a secured credit card. Another option is to add yourself to a friend or family member’s credit card account who has a good credit history which will show finance officers your ability to pay off a loan.
