Tips to Rebuild Your Credit

Not all hope is lost if you have a low credit score. There are a variety of factors that might be affecting your score. Our team has developed a few ways to improve your credit score by making simple changes.

First, be mindful of your credit card usage. Credit cards can offer many rewards, perks, and flexibility in your budget while helping you build credit. But your credit card might be one of the factors hurting your credit. It is recommended to keep your credit card balance 25% below your available limit and make your payments on time. Even if you pay your credit card statement on time every month, if you have a large amount on your credit card, it could be affecting your score.

Next, be sure to pay your bills on time. If you are thirty days late on a payment regularly, this can hurt your credit. There are many ways to make sure your bills are paid on time, from the autopay systems to simple reminders on your mobile device and or calendar. If you make these simple changes, your credit score will improve. We recommend checking on your credit score regularly to check on your progress and other factors affecting your score.
