Credit Repair Is Not as Difficult as You May Think
We stand by one basic mantra when it comes to credit repair: You have to have credit to get credit. What does this mean? For starters:
- Get a credit card. Creditors are willing to provide you with credit almost immediately after you have gone through the full bankruptcy process. They may charge high interest rates and provide you with small lines of credit, but this is still credit, and it will help you in your search to repair your credit.
- Pay your bills on time. Just as paying your phone bills and rent payments are important, it is also important that you pay your credit card bills on time. Early or on-time payments greatly increase your credit score, especially if they are paid on time on a monthly basis. A good way to ensure you pay your bills on time is to set up automatic monthly payment plans.
- Participate in activity that is reported to the credit agencies. Opening a new line of credit, buying a car, making on-time mortgage payments and other similar actions all get reported to the credit agencies. These actions can help to repair your credit and increase your credit score.
