One other common credit mistake people make is opening too many credit cards in succession
LAFAYETTE, Ind. (PRWEB) April 20, 2018
There are a number of credit mistakes people normally make and National Debt Relief shares some of them. The article titled “The Most Common Mistakes With Credit” released April 13, 2018, aims to help consumers identify these common mistakes in order for them to make the necessary changes to protect their finances.
The article starts off by pointing out that there are people who are wrecking their credit without them even knowing it. It is important for consumers to understand that their credit score is an important part of their finances. It plays a big part in most big purchases such as buying a house or a car. There are even some jobs in the Federal Government that requires a good credit rating.
The article also explains that consumers that habitually send in late payments are one sure of putting their credit scores down. What people may not realize is that virtually any entity they do business with can report a late payment to a credit bureau, regardless of the amount. This means that a late payment for a child’s clarinet rental can affect their score.
One other common credit mistake people make is opening too many credit cards in succession. Consumers need to realize that once they apply for a credit card, lenders will conduct a hard pull on their score. This usually pulls a score down and when a lot of them are done at the same time, it could pull their score down quite significantly.
The article also explains that consumers often make the mistake of cosigning for a loan without thinking it through. People need to understand that once they cosign a loan, they are actually allowing other people to use their credit standing in order to apply for a loan. However, poor payment habits of their partner will reflect on their score as well.
