The THREE credit building products to help INCREASE your CREDIT SCORE
- Revolving Accounts
Revolving accounts are the cornerstone of every credit report and if you want the HIGHEST SCORE possible, they’re very important.
So what does revolving credit really mean?
It means you’re given a credit line with a limit and you can charge purchases up to its limit.
Also, you pay interest on balances you carry and as you pay it down, you can re-use available credit again and again.
And, there are benefits to having available credit on revolving accounts like credit cards.
Revolving credit has the potential to impact your credit score in a few different ways, but the most important area it affects is how much you borrow in relation to your credit limits.
This factor, which is also known as credit utilization, makes up 30% of your credit score.
In general, you will position yourself for better credit if you keep your total credit utilization across all your credit card accounts as low as possible, preferably under 30%. This means, you should make sure you owe $300 or less for every thousand dollars in credit available to you.
One thing to keep in mind is that keeping a reasonably low level of credit utilization can be tricky, so in my FREE workshop, I’ll take you deeper into how EXACTLY to do that for yourself and your clients!
- Installment Accounts
Installment accounts are just as important as revolving accounts for building credit and gaining trust. In fact, having a healthy mix of both revolving and installment lines makes up about 10% of your total credit score.
So what are the key differences between revolving and installment accounts?
Revolving accounts ...
- Have a different payment each month depending on your current balance.
- You are not required to pay these accounts in full each month.
- You have the option to “revolve” some of the balance to the following month.
- Lenders charge you interest on the amount you revolve.
Installment accounts …
- Are those that have a fixed payment for a fixed period of time.
- Do not require you to pay the loan in full each month.
- Instead, you make a payment that is the same every month until the loan is paid in full.
- Lenders charge you an annual percentage rate (known as an APR), which is how they make money.
Remember, though ... not all installment accounts are the same.
So in the FREE mini-workshop, I’ll cover the differences and how you can leverage those to help your credit scores and your client’s credit scores!
- Utility Reporting
Did you know you can build credit by reporting rent and utility payments?
You can! It’s a little-known secret, and it’s really, really easy!
Nearly everyone has utility bills like gas and electric, phone and internet and the vast majority of credit repair clients pay rent. In fact, over 43 million people in the United States do!
So if you can build credit with utilities and rent, why don’t most people know about it?
Well, unlike credit cards, loans, and mortgages - utility providers and landlords are not lending you money.
They are selling you services and they don’t automatically report to the credit bureaus, so there is no real record of it ever happening on your credit report.
But there are some new services that help link those accounts to your credit report, and in the FREE mini-workshop, I’ll share with you exactly what those are so you can leverage rent and utilities for you and your client’s credit scores!
Remember, as a Credit Hero, removing the negative items is half the work, the other half is adding positive accounts, adding the right accounts, adding a good mix of accounts which will maximize the overall credit rating, paying on time, and making wise financial decisions.
