Okay, so we’re now in 2019 and all the New Year’s Resolutions are starting again. I can’t think of a better resolution than a higher credit score. Low credit scores cost consumers so much money. These extra costs can include higher credit costs (interest rates) and even higher insurance rates. Many consumers can even lose employment opportunities based on information reported on their credit report.
The most important part of obtaining a New Year’s Resolution is to have a full proof plan. A big resolution I hear every year is people wanting to get in shape and lose a few extra pounds. You won’t be able to watch any television program in the next few weeks without seeing commercial after commercial about losing weight. You can drive by any gym and see parking lots that were mostly vacant a few weeks ago now at full capacity. These folks all have great starts for their better health resolutions but year after year many fail. I can’t help you on this resolution but I can certainly help anyone maintain a higher credit score.
There is nothing random about credit scoring. Credit scores are designed to determine future risk. Banks deny credit and / or charge higher interest rates to compensate for additional risk. If you have a subpar credit score, your credit report includes subpar characteristics.
So how can you obtain a higher credit score? I must say, I’m asked this very question daily. Each and every client of CureMyScore.com gets a custom Game Plan to answer this very question. A solid full proof Game Plan will lead to better credit scores for life. Credit reports are very unique so it’s impossible to give one blanket answer on how to get a higher credit score.
Here are a few general tips to help improve your credit score:
Just following these few tips will help you get a jump start on meeting your 2019 higher credit score resolution.
