Lenders label individuals with no credit history as 'high risk'.
Being considered 'high risk' can be the 'kiss of death' when it
comes to getting approved for unsecured loans. Why? Because
unsecured personal loans require no collateral. So, the lender
loaning you your money trusts you that you will make timely
payments. This is not a personal issue of trust, it is a credit
issue. Lenders do not want to lend unsecured loans to people
with no credit or bad credit, period.
By now you are asking yourself, 'How do I turn my no credit
history into a positive one so that I can apply for a personal
loan and get the cash that I need?'. Easy! Being labeled 'high
risk' makes it hard to get approved for certain types of loans
and credit, but not all.
Did you know that applying for a used car loan is one the best
means for building or rebuilding credit? How? When you take out
a car loan, you are securing your loan with the car that you are
financing. If you do not make the payments, you will lose the
car. So, the lenders are much more inclined to provide car
financing to people with no credit before they approve an
unsecured personal loan.
Another great way to build your credit history is to apply for a
credit card. There are a few credit cards available on the
markets that are specifically designed for people with no credit
and bad credit. Be careful! You do not want to put yourself into
debt with the use of your new credit card. You want to make only
a few charges a month,/ These charges should be small; so that
you can afford to pay your bill as soon as you receive.
Utilizing a credit card and paying the bill on time every month
will help build your credit very quickly.
A third means of building your no credit history into a positive
one is to put some utility bills in your name. This means having
the phone, electric, gas and/or water bill put in your name,
making you responsible for the payments. Again, you want to make
the payments are made on time, every month! Doing so will also
help build your credit fast. You will severely damage your
credit rating if you neglect to make all of the payments on
time, every month.
If you follow two of the above suggestions, you should be able
to build a non-existence credit history into a good credit
history in about one year. Then, when you need a little extra
cash for a vacation, shopping, etc., you can apply for and
hopefully get approved for personal loans.
