Checking your credit score is the first step to building credit

Knowing what may have gone wrong with your credit score is the only way to build it. Being aware you have a poor credit score means you can take steps to build it and improve your credit score that much faster.

Do you understand your credit score?

• 35% of your credit score comes from payment timeliness. This is any payment you make on ANY sort of credit.

• 30% of your credit score is your amount of debt. So, maintaining a balance on your credit card isn’t necessarily a bad thing - as long as it is under 30% of the total limit.

• 15% of your credit score is based on the length of time each account has been open and the length of time since the account’s most recent action.

• 10% of your credit score is new credit and credit inquiries.

• 10% of your credit score is for the different types of credit you have.

Knowing your credit score means you can make a more educated decision when it comes to what sorts of credit you should apply for right now. A low credit score means you’re going to be offered much higher interest rates on any funds you borrow, if you’re approved at all. With a low credit score, you’d be better off considering a secured form of credit and make use of credit building programs like the ones here at Refresh Financial.
