Refinance For A Better Auto Loan Rate

Aug 16, 2008
Most of the time people will not refinance a loan when they could save money with refinancing. Many times people can be scared or think they have bad credit without knowing. People with bad credit have a harder time obtaining a lower interest rate on a new loan. Generally lenders will offer better rates for people with better credit. If your credit is good your rate should be good. There are many lenders so searching for the right one is a possibility to get a better rate.

On the high side of interest rates someone with a bad credit score will pay around 18%. This person could have filed a bankruptcy or was past due on any credit account. They could have had a lot of late payments, collections and other negative credit items. On the other side people with a good credit score will pay around 5%.

If your credit is pretty bad you might have a limited amount of options. It is always a good idea to check your credit every few months to see if your rating has improved. Time will be your greatest asset to getting a better loan. In general it is pretty tough to get a low interest rate with a bad credit score but you might be within a few percentage points.

Obtain a credit report to view all of your credit history. If you had bad credit in the beginning you might have raised your credit score by paying on time. The overall amount of debt and payment history compared to how much money you make are the biggest factors with your credit score The opposite would be if your credit has become worse. Viewing your credit report should help you to make necessary decisions before applying for a refinance.

You should resolve any past due accounts. Your credit report will show any negative items. If you reduce debts and resolve any outstanding issues your credit can be repaired with time. The best thing to remember is pay your bills on time each month.

Look for loans from a different lender. It is a good idea to look for multiple sources of financing. Lenders will have different rates and you will benefit the most by comparing more than one. Anyone can find a loan regardless of credit history. Online auto brokers can be beneficial to help find the best loan at the best rate. If you find your quote is not going to help you can always find a co-signer.
