In Your Best Interest

Aug 17, 2007
Have you ever wondered why everyone pays a different amount for the insurance for his or her home and car? Your credit score could either be saving you money or causing you to pay a lot more. In the eyes of the insurers, individuals with bad credit will be the most likely to file claims due to negligence of their belongings. People with good credit are perceived as those with a stable financial status who would be able to replace a bad tire or fix a leaky roof at the beginning of the problem. It may seem unfair to put such labels on individuals just because of difference in poor or excellent credit but that's the way credit companies operate. Therefore, by maintaining good credit, you can finance large purchases for less money.

Mortgage interest rates also rely on the owner's credit record. If your score is considered "excellent", you could only owe a low fixed rate. The lower your credit score is, the higher rates of interest you will be paying. You probably will be ineligible for a fixed rate, which means the interest percentage could increase at any time and put you at a disadvantage. Lenders make money through interest rates, so they will charge you more to make more money. It is important to have good credit when it comes to your home simply for the fact that you will be saving thousands in interest. Be careful to work with a respectable and fair company so you get the best deal possible when it comes to interest, but realize that good interest rates are only possible if you maintain excellent credit.

Your credit level also affects student loan interest rates. As long as you have good credit, you should have no problem shopping around before you commit to one that feels comfortable to you. Some companies that you will find offer a fixed flat interest rate for all applicants with good credit. As with all interest rates on loans, it will save you a lot of money in the long run to go with the lowest interest rate possible.

Wise decisions regarding your finances will always pay off both immediately and in the long run. Bad credit is a burden on your life, especially when it comes to collectors who will rely solely on the contents of your report. Get your credit score up as soon as you can and do all that you can to keep it high so that when it comes to interest rates, you will be sure to get one that is comfortable to fit into your financial lifestyle.
