How Good Credit Affects Loans

Aug 17, 2007
Contrary to popular belief, not all loans are taken out because the borrower is having financial trouble. Most people with ordinary jobs cannot afford to completely pay for a new car or home in saved cash. Also, student loans are available to students who wish to attend college but their parents do not have the money for expensive tuition and books out of pocket. Your credit record is going to determine your eligibility. Good credit will give the lender the assurance that you will be able to repay the loan over time. On the other hand, a bad credit score will almost immediately make you ineligible to receive money.

A loan is like an advance on money that you plan to have but have yet to earn. A sizeable loan may take years to repay, but if you are looking to purchase a home or car for your family, it may be necessary to apply for thousands of dollars worth of loans. If your credit history shows that you have a good record of paying bills on time and that you have kept the same steady job for at least two years, the lender will have confidence in your ability to pay them back, and you will not only be eligible for larger amounts of money, but you will also receive better interest rates.

Today's job market relies heavily on having a college education to your name. However, tuition and books can easily cost thousands of dollars that schools will require to be paid between your enrollment and the start of classes. It is common for parents to have personal expenses and bills that have stepped in the way of saving enough for their children to go to college. If the parent or guardian has good credit to their name, they can co-sign for a student loan. The responsibility will be placed on the student to repay the loan, usually 6 months after graduation. This gives the student just enough time to secure a steady paying job before creditors start asking for money. Prior to signing yourself to this type of loan, it is important to consider that this will be a lot to pay back and it may take many years.

Loans also come in handy for those who are behind on bills, or perhaps need to do repair work on their home. Sometimes life throws you for an unexpected curveball and unanticipated expenses arise, setting you back financially. As long as you have good credit you can stay ahead of your bills by taking out a personal loan to help you until you can get back on your feet again. No matter what type of loan you are applying for, the one thing that remains the same is that your credit score will be a deciding factor when it comes to getting approved or denied.
