Obtaining Additional Credit
Now that you have the
knowledge of how to start building a strong credit profile in your new credit
file, you might want additional credit. DON'T BE IN A HURRY TO DO THIS! If you follow my procedure you'll have 3 banks behind you. Concentrate on improving your ability to
borrow money from them and getting other banks behind you if you can. After you pay off your first secured loan,
ask the bank loan officer what it takes for you to get a small loan without
having to secure it with a savings account. That's what you concentrate on and follow their
advice so you can start getting loans on your word! Then you're on your way!
When the doors to the
credit world open for most people they start charging things they really can do
without, mainly material possessions. I
recommend that you concentrate on you being able to borrow the money for the
material things you want in life. Then
concentrate on your ability to travel by getting a couple of airline cards
along with car rental, car repair cards, and a couple of gas cards. Other than this you might want to get a
finance company behind you.
ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT
ONCE YOU'RE IN GOOD WITH A BANK, NEVER LET THAT
RELATIONSHIP SOUR AT ALL COSTS!
