We all want to. Even those who are at the prime and super prime credit segments want to avoid any trouble so that their score isn’t lowered. In this article we will dissect how can you (slowly, but steadily and surely) improve your credit score with enough time, hard work, willpower, and patience. It might sound hard, and it is hard but only up until you actually try it.
It works like workout, you see. Once you are in it, you will feel like giving it all you have and it won’t be hard anymore. And the moment it stops being hard is exactly the moment when you start seeing the changes yourself.
Know your credit score first
Indeed, before you start fretting over your potentially bad credit score, you should check it. Annual credit report free are available. Without paying a dime, you can know your credit report once a year from each of the three credit firms.
Now, you can also use other services to know your credit any time like Credit Karma. Also, once a person knows his or her credit score, he or she is prone to thinking automatically that his or her credit score is bad.
My advice is that you check with your bank or some financial institution about whether you can draw a loan or open up a credit line with your credit score or not. If you can’t, and you are rejected constantly, only then it means that you have practically bad credit score.
How to improve?
There is just one thing I believe that can improve your credit score: after you know your free credit report annual, you will be able to also see what factors are pulling your score down. You work on them. As simple as that. Decrease your expense, if that’s what’s pulling it down. It will take time, yes, but surely it will improve your credit score.
