Good Scores and Bad Scores All Have Room for Improvement
Talking about your credit situation has become somewhat taboo in our culture. It is one of those things that most people simply don’t feel comfortable talking about with others. The truth is though, whether you have really great credit or really poor credit, there is more often than not, room for improvement. When you understand the savings that come with a credit score better than the one you currently have, you’ll realize that credit repair isn’t just for those with poor credit; it is for everyone.
The easiest way to illustrate this is simply, the better your credit score is, the more money you are going to save in interest. If you understand loans and balances, you know that in most scenarios, there are two portions of your payment. One portion is the principal, the actual amount borrowed to you, and the other portion is interest, how banks and financial institutions make their money. If you have a better credit score, you’re showing creditors that you are more responsible with paying back your debts and managing your money. That being said, your creditor is going to charge you less in interest because you aren’t as much of a risk as someone who has a credit score lower than yours. Pretty simple to understand, yeah?
Now, taking that knowledge and applying it to your own credit situation, most likely there is room for improvement. The fact in the matter is, if you could save even more money on interest with a better credit score than you have now, it makes sense to always be improving your score. Right!?
Unfortunately, “credit repair” has established a negative connotation in our society, which simultaneously drives people away from educating themselves or getting help simply because they don’t want to be labeled as someone who needs help with their credit. However, the truth is, there are very few people that understand credit well enough to obtain an 800+ credit score. This isn’t because they aren’t responsible with their money or don’t pay their bills on time. It is simply because your credit score is made up of many different variable, many of which aren’t as intuitive as you would think. The only way to always be improving your score is to continue educating yourself and learning how to build credit correctly.
