Ways to apply
Is it true that applying for a loan hurts your credit score?
Applying for a loan may impact your credit score by a few points but having a loan also adds a trade line to your credit report. This could then raise your score by a few points. Ensuring that all payments are on-time for your new loan can help boost your credit score as well.
Can I apply for a loan if I think my credit score is bad?
There are many myths about credit scores. The truth is that a person has different credit scores with different credit bureaus. These scores can fluctuate over time and the maximum score anyone can have is 850. Your score can vary by a number of factors, including your payment history as well as your overall available credit. Your credit score is not the only piece of information used when making a loan decision. Outstanding debt and monthly income also play a role.
