Many people have considered or needed credit repair in their lifetime. In today’s economy, it is becoming more and more needed and increasingly popular.
You may ask the question, why is good credit such a necessity? The answer is quite simple. Good credit is mandatory to acquire things in life. Nowadays when you apply for a job, if you are considered for the position, your credit is then run. Guess what? If you have bad credit, your application will be thrown out and the next applicant with good credit will more than likely get the job over you. We all are aware of the shortage of jobs so who would want to miss out on the possibility of getting a good job due to poor credit? Surely no one you or I know.
Chances are if you do have bad credit and you are in the process of repairing your credit, you may be able to show the employer your updated credit report showing any and all deletions due to the credit repair. This will greatly enhance your chances of being gainfully employed because it will then show the employer that you are responsible and wiling to correct your mistakes.
Another reason to clean your credit is that good credit is needed to secure your living quarters. If you are not able to purchase a house just yet, you are then forced to rent a condo or an apartment. The owner of the property wants to ensure that he/she will get their rent money. They will want to make sure that the person that they are renting their property to is responsible and has a healthy habit of paying their bills. The owner of the property will then run the hopeful renters’ credit. If your credit is bad, you will be denied and not be able to rent the property.
Good credit is even more pertinent when you are ready to purchase a home. Imagine this. You have worked hard for years. Sacrificed and saved. You have a nice nest egg in the bank. Now you are ready to buy your house. You begin house hunting with your favorite real estate agent. All of your free time is occupied with finding your perfect home. You look at what seems like a hundred or more homes. Finally you find the perfect home for you and you have to have it. You begin the process of buying the home by completing the loan application. Your dreams are crushed because you are denied due to bad credit. You will not be approved by any lender, regardless of the nice nest egg you have saved in the bank, until you clean your credit and your credit score increases. The only chance you have to purchase your dream home is to have the full asking price of the house in your bank account. That is very unlikely for the normal “Joe” unless he/she is rich, has rich parents or has hit the lottery.
Did you know that a lot of car rental businesses run your credit when you go to rent a car? Imagine that. You can’t even rent a car if you have bad credit. It is even difficult to open a bank account with bad credit.
These are just a few reasons why it is important to have good credit and if you don’t have good credit, why you should repair it. As the world grows and times change, I am willing to bet that it will become even more important to have good credit.
