How to Build Your Credit Score
The five components which make up your credit score are:
1) Payment History (35%)
Make sure payments are paid by the due date listed or
within grace period. When payments are 30 days late or
more it can be detrimental to your score resulting in a
possible 60 point hit. If this does happen be sure to
payoff the account as soon as possible.
2) Amounts Owed (30%)
Keep your revolving debt at a maximum of 30% or less of
your availability. Avoid maxing out credit cards and
line of credit.
3) Length of Credit History (15%)
Lenders prefer to see a history of credit of at least 2
years worth or longer to show responsibility and
discipline on payments.
4) New Credit (10%)
Avoid applying on loans & credit cards with multiple
companies, even when you are “pre-approved”. Also, don't
card hop just to get better interest rates. When you
anticipate applying for financing, don't apply for
anything within 60 days before hand.
5)Types of Credit Used (10%)
Lenders want to see a balance of credit used such as
revolving and installment to show good financial
management. If your scores have been damaged due to
various situations keep in mind there are ways to
improve your credit but unfortunately not over night.
Depending on what the scenario may be such as financial
mismanagement, bankruptcy, or identity theft you can
work towards improving your credit with patience,
discipline & perseverance.
