Debt consolidation is one of the most popular debt repayment programs for consumers and National Debt Relief explains the advantages and even the downside to the program. The article titled “5 Pros And 5 Cons Of Consolidating Credit Card Debt” released August 28, 2017 takes a look at both sides to help consumers make better decisions.
The article starts off by explaining how American credit card debt is again at an all time high. The level is almost the same before the 2008 Great Recession where the housing market bubble crashed and rippled out to several areas in people lives. Debt was an understatement as people lost their homes and their jobs.
One of the things consumers learned from that experience is to manage their debt better and debt consolidation is a great way to do that. There are a lot of advantages to the repayment program. The article explains that debt consolidation enables consumers to manage just one payment instead of having to juggle multiple due dates every month.
The article also points out that debt consolidation could yield better interest rates especially if the market conditions are favorable. It would also help if consumer’s credit score is better than what what it was previously. Lenders would feel a lot safer and be more inclined to approve a lower interest rate.
The article also explains that there are disadvantages to debt consolidation. One of which is the possibility of running up more debt in the future.
