Bad Credit Record And Property Investment / Dirk Wessels

2007-08-20T10:36:04.642-07:00

When I first moved up to Johannesburg and my career was just starting to flourish many years ago, I heard of and spoke to a number of people in a relatively short period of time with above average salaries who had lost everything and had to start over at a somewhat more mature age. I thought they were just stupid and never gave much thought to it, because it would never happen to me. Well, as Forest Gump says "It" happens.What if the banks won't give me a home loan due to a bad credit record?As I have mentioned before on my wealth creation site, I had a bit of a financial setback a couple of years ago. I am slowly recovering from that, but there's not much chance of a bank giving me a loan at this stage. I still have 2 judgments against me. However, it is possible to buy a property even with bad credit.Installment SaleOne option is to buy a property through an Installment sale. This is not necessarily an easy option, but depending on your situation it could be the quickest way to get into the property market. With an Installment sale you need a third party to "give you a loan" and almost act like a bank for a period of time.Basically, with an Installment sale you pay a certain amount extra for a property than it would sell for in the open market at this stage. Let's say Jack Flash wants to sell his house. He's looked at the market and believes he can sell it for R500,000. After performing a number of rituals including a 7 day fast, dancing naked on the hilltop and cutting off your left ear as a sacrifice, it has been "revealed" to you that Jack has recently won the lottery and has no immediate need for the R500,000, but just wants to get his money at some stage. Having looked at the property market in the area you believe that the value of the property will continue to rise and that it would still be worth your while paying R550,000 for the property. So, you go speak to Jack and offer him R550,000 for his property on condition that he sells it to you on an Installment sale.With an Installment sale, the loan for the property remains in the name of the 3rd party, Jack in our example. The two of you then sign a contract that states that you are buying the property from Jack. You agree to pay R25,000 upfront, another R25,000 12 months later and a monthly Installment. This contract is completely legal and can be compared to the contract you sign when taking a loan from a bank. Generally there will be a clause that states that Jack may "take back" the property if you miss an Installment or x number of Installments. This is just to protect the 3rd party, who is really taking a risk in giving you a loan. This is true of any loan with a bank as well where they may re-posses the property if you fail to pay your Installments. Make sure you get a professional with experience in Installment sales to draw up the contract for you and explain the details to both parties.There are two complications here. Firstly you need to ensure that it is worth buying the property at the higher value. It may seem that you are going to loose money if you pay R50,000 more for a property than it is worth. However, you need to look at the average property growth rate in that area and compare it to the current interest rate. Take a look at my explanation on passive income on my website. The following calculation is not 100% correct, but for simplicity's sake. If the interest rate is 10% and the property growth rate is 20%, it means that you'll recover the R50,000 within the first year even without taking the rent that you'll earn from the property into consideration. It means that you may not make as much profit as the next person, but it does help you to get (back) into the property market and work your way up from there.The second problem is finding a person who is willing to sell their property on Installment sale. I don't know how you do this. Speak to a wealthy uncle or maybe a family member who qualifies for a second bond, but cannot afford the monthly Installment. You'[...]



Better Deals On A Bad Credit Secured Loan

2007-08-19T10:16:02.722-07:00

A bad credit situation is like a blot on a borrower’s credit report. The late payments or unwilling defaults were circumstantial, but now they are strafing your reputation as a borrower. Every time you visit a lender for some help, bad credit remarks raise their ugly head and you return empty handed. However, all is not lost for people with bad credit or ccj’s against them.

The lending market is fiercely competitive. In spite of having bad credit or a few ccj’s, you can still hope to find a bad credit secured loan, if you have something to offer as collateral. The key to getting such a loan is persistence. Don’t get disheartened if some lenders refuse you politely, offer lame excuses or worse show you the door. Since, it is you who is in need of the money, the efforts should be greater at your end. Shop around, meet every lender who suits your purpose, try harder and it won’t be long when you find the one who is willing. Things won’t be too tough as a collateral is being offered.

Bad credit secured loans takes your home or any other property that you own as the collateral. In simple terms, it means that your property is pledged to the lender. He will give you the secured loan but will own the house or property until the loan is paid. Once you pay the installments completely you are again the legitimate owner of the property. If under any circumstances you default on payments, the lender can repossess your property. He is fully authorized by the credit agreement to sell the property and recover his amount.

There are some lenders who deal only with those persons who have a bad credit score. Lending to bad credit people is a lucrative business. Indeed, it is risky for the lenders since they are dealing with people who are already proclaimed defaulters but this gives them the opportunity to charge higher interest rates on their loans. Don’t expect a fair deal from every lender who specializes in bad credit secured loan. You must have heard the term “Loan Sharks”. Yes, they are real and swarm the lending market. Often, garbed as ‘most helpful lender’ and armed with the ‘most promising offers’ they wait for their prey - the people with poor credit scores. These scandalous lenders offer loans, which are glossy and attractive but have outrageously exploitative terms buried in fine print. So, if you are dealing with a lender who exclusively deals in bad credit loans, please be very careful and do so only after getting convincing references about the lender.

The process of applying for a bad credit secured loan is similar to other types of loan. Although, the loan is secured by your house or property, it doesn’t overlook the fact that you have a bad credit. Your credit report is the first thing any lender will go through. Expect a thorough credit check. Be ready with the details of your employment history, the income slips and details of your outstanding debts. The sooner you provide all the details, the faster will be the loan approval.

By taking a bad credit secured loan you have a chance to improve our credit situation. Don’t shy away from the truth, recognize the fact that you are solely responsible for your condition- whether it is for the better or for worse. It is true that some things are unavoidable; it is true that one cannot change the circumstances, but in any given situation you can take charge and adopt financial discipline. It will definitely improve your credit ratings and remove the blot of bad credit from your dossier.




You Can Apply For A Personal Loan Online Even If You Have A Bad Credit Rating

2007-08-17T11:25:44.880-07:00

Some people don't dare to apply for a personal loan online because the have a bad credit rating. They automatically think that if they have bad credit, they can never get a loan. Fortunately this isn't true. However, with bad credit you will most likely have to:

- pay a higher interest rate
- accept that you in some cases and from some credit companies you might not be approved
- for the entire amount you were looking for, but at least still be able to get something.

So, if you have a bad credit history you can have a personal loan and you can even use this loan to help increase your credit score. The way to do this is:

- make sure that all of your payments are on time
- pay a little more than required each month, if you can do so. This also means that the total cost of your loan will decrease because you'll pay off the loan faster, thus paying less interests.

Other things you can do to increase your credit rate

Allocate some time where you can sit down undisturbed and do the following:

- Write down all your sources of income
- Write down all your expenses like power, rent, mortgage payment, gas bills, dining out, other regular bills etc. - everything you are using your income to pay for.
- Then, go through the list of your expenses and see what you can cut out in order to make your payments on time and even pay a little more each month.
- If you are able to it put a part of the excess money (when you have paid your loan on time and added a little more to your regular payments) in a savings account.

It is easy to apply for your personal loan on the internet. Just be aware that since the internet is a huge marketplace there are some not so good loan companies out there, so keep to recommended loan or credit companies with a great reputation.





You Can Fix Your Bad Or Poor Credit

2007-08-16T15:48:41.216-07:00

Tips on how to get started now.

You will not be able to build good credit overnight. It will take discipline and persistence on your part to change your credit for the better. After you have fixed and improved your credit rating in the eyes of lenders, you will notice more opportunities offered to you to borrow money at more desirable terms than when your credit was bad. Just because you have bad credit does not mean that you can not borrow money or get a loan, it just means that less opportunities will be available. The funds you can get will come at a greater cost in terms of higher interest rates and more stringent repayment terms.

Many banks and lending companies are less likely to make loans to people with bad credit. Therefore, it only makes sense that you strive to improve your creditworthiness in order to convince potential lenders that you are a good credit risk. Once you have improved your credit history and track record you will be have better opportunities to buy a car, finance a personal loan, or buy a house. If you have already been trying to financed for any large purchases, then you may have noticed the hurdles you've been put through trying to get approved.

Fixing your credit rating may be as easy as getting any inaccurate statements off of your credit report. Therefore it is important to frequently check yours to see if everything on it is correct. If you do find inaccuracies immediately contact the credit bureau and work with them to get them corrected and off of your credit report.

For others, fixing or repairing their credit rating may be a lot more involved and complicated. Start by getting your personal budget balanced. You should not be spending more each month than what you bring in each month. If you are, then get that straightened out immediately. Cut out all unnecessary spending and charging. It is critical that you get your budget and debt repayment plan balanced, while making all debt payments on time. Not making on time payments each month increases the late payment fees you will have to pay, bring about increased interest rates and continue to negatively your credit rating. Once you start making and continue to make your monthly debt payments on time, you should see your credit score start to rise.

If you find that you can not do this on your own, there are many companies that can provide debt consolidation services.

So in essence to improve your credit:

• Create and live by a personal budget that balances your monthly income with your monthly expenses.

• Create a plan to save money and pay off your credit cards and debt.

• Use credit wisely.

• Pay your bills on time every month.

Once you have put all of these tips into action and your credit score begins to improve, you should see your borrowing opportunities improve as well. But remember, good credit habits must be worked at every day, so do not give up and make it a lifetime habit.

Bad Credit Credit Cards

2007-08-13T09:25:35.942-07:00

People who have bad credit have many more credit card options today than they did just a few years ago. Maybe this is contributed to the theory of supply and demand or maybe the credit card companies just realized how much more money they can make by charging high interest rates to people with bad credit. I personally think it may be a little of both.

But no matter what the reason why, there are many credit card companies willing to grant credit to people with bad credit these days. This is good news to those with tarnished credit records. But people with bad credit should evaluate what actions got their credit into bad shape in the first place before applying for more credit. For many people their bad credit is due to uncontrollable circumstances like the loss of a job or medical reasons. But for other people, their bad credit is due to irresponsible financial decisions. If you have bad credit and it was caused by the second reason, it is imperative that you change your credit habits. Otherwise you will never improve your credit score and will always end up paying high interest rates and fees.

Higher interest rates are obviously the price you have to pay in order to obtain a credit card if you have bad credit. Fortunately, if you are responsible with your bad credit credit card and make your monthly payments on time, over time you can improve your credit score and eventually get a lower interest rate. Make sure that the bad credit credit card you are applying for frequently reports to the major credit bureaus. This will insure that your credit score will improve as quickly as possible by having your positive payment activity reported.

There are credit card websites that have researched the best bad credit credit card deals available and have listed them in an easy to read format. Visit www.amex-visa-mastercard.com to look at the details. Many of the bad credit credit cards listed on this site do monthly credit bureau reporting.

We have all run into hard times and made mistakes with our credit activity. Thankfully there are bad credit credit card offers available that will still give you the freedom of having a credit card along with giving you the chance to rebuild your credit.



The Ins And Outs Of Bad Credit Home Loans

2007-08-11T01:19:29.997-07:00

Owning a home is part of the American dream. It’s also the biggest purchase that most of us will ever make, and because of that, almost everyone will be borrowing money to do it. Unfortunately, for many people that means a bad credit home loan, and that might be hard to get.

It’s simple. Imagine going to a bank and asking for $200,000. And then imagine that you have bad credit. You’re always behind on your bills, your credit cards are stretched to the limit – or you have no credit cards – and you have no collateral. Now try and imagine what the bank will say.

Having a home is a big part of the American dream, but having bad credit is a big part of the American reality. There are a lot of people with bad credit who want to buy homes, but how can they convince a bank or other lender to give them money if it’s clear they’ve never been able to pay their bills on time?

The first thing to do if you’re contemplating buying a home and you have bad credit is to try and establish good credit. Make sure you pay your bills promptly. If you don’t have a major credit card, get one, use it and pay the bills promptly. You’re trying to convince a lender that you can be trusted to pay back money you’ve borrowed. Next, you want to carefully check your credit score.

Your credit score is a history of all of your financial activity as it pertains to credit; in other words, how much and how often you have borrowed and how promptly you’ve paid it back. Credit scores are generated by three companies:Experian; Equifax and TransUnion, and you’re allowed one free credit report a year from each of these companies. If you’re thinking of borrowing for a house, check your credit report; it’s entirely possible that there are mistakes that could lower your score.

Now assume that you’re on your way to establishing credit (but you’re not quite there yet) and your credit report is accurate. The next step is to find someone who is willing to lend you money, and that is probably the easiest step of all. With so many Americans have bad credit, mortgage companies have responded by loosening restrictions on loans and almost all of them have special bad credit programs. Of course, these people aren’t giving the money away. You’ll still have to go through the application process and there are some criteria – loan-to-value ratio, debt-to-income ratio, and monthly income – that they will use to determine whether or not you are a good risk. However, don’t forget that if you have bad credit and a mortgage company is willing to talk to you, they want your business, so don’t be afraid to negotiate.

But what if the private mortgage companies and the banks turn you down? Are you out of options? Not at all. There are a lot of different ways you can get money for a house if you have bad credit. A good place to check is the Federal Housing Authority (FHA.) FHA loans have very generous conditions (the down payment can be as low as 3% or less), they are willing to help people with bad credit and they have various programs that offer excellent deals to professional people – police officers, teachers – to encourage them to become homeowners in the community where they work. Another good choice is Fannie Mae. This private company can make home loans easily available – even if you have bad credit – through their Expanded Approval Program.

Getting a bad credit home loan can take extra time, but it’s worth the effort. Interest rates are low and there are a lot of options. Don’t delay your dream.



Credit Cards For Bad Credit Applications

2007-08-09T13:31:40.557-07:00

If you have bad credit, you may be under the impression that you are not able to apply for a credit card. While it is true that you may be rejected from getting certain credit cards or loans, there are options available for those who have bad credit. Since a sizeable percentage of the population has bad credit, this has created a market which many banks and credit card companies have tapped into.

Your credit report is a reflection of your credit history, and it is very important when you need to apply for a car or mortgage. There may be situations where you will need a credit card to complete a certain transaction, and if you have bad credit you will run into problems. There are a number of options available for those with bad credit who want cards. Secured credit cards are one good option. A secured credit card allows you to deposit money into the account which you can then use.

Instead of borrowing money from the credit card company, you use your own money. You will not be allowed to go over the amount you place on the card. Despite this, you may have to pay the credit card company a fee in order to use their cards, and this is how their money is made. A secured credit card can be used to make any of the purchases you can make with a unsecured credit card. A prepaid debit card is another option that is used by people who have less than perfect credit.

If you are a student in college, an option may be available for you called a secured student credit card. These cards will allow students to begin building their credit while they're still in school. Students who use these cards are prevented from going over their limit because they can only spend money which they've placed on the cards. It is important to remember that you won't get the best deals or rates if your credit is poor. However, we live in an electronic age, and it is difficult to conduct many transactions without having either a debit or credit card.

Secured credit cards are a great way to allow you to make transactions while you continue to rebuild your credit. If you work hard to repair your credit, you won't be in debt forever, and using these cards will allow you to easily make electronic transactions.

Bad-Credit Car Loans Are Possible

2007-08-05T20:34:03.546-07:00

Bad-credit car loans may not be easy to find, but if you need a car, they are worth it.Bad-credit car loans carry a higher risk to the lender, so the borrower must pay a higher than usual interest rate. You probably will need to apply to more than one lender and give more documentation. Still, a bad-credit loan is worth the trouble because it not only lets you get the car you need and want, but can also help improve your overall credit rating.Getting a Car Loan with Bad Credit: 4 Steps1. Contact Equifax, Consumerinfo, or TrueCredit online for your credit score or to make sure there are no errors on your credit report. You can usually dispute the incorrect information online or over the telephone. If you have correct unfavorable information, you can write a letter to the company that reported the unfavorable information, asking them to remove that information or make a note that your accounts are now in good standing. Usually they won't do this, but it doesn't hurt to try.2. Determine your credit score (also called a FICO score). There are simple online guidelines for estimating your credit score yourself. Still, to get a truly accurate score, you need to purchase it from the credit bureaus.a. Note that each bureau may have a slightly different score (and possibly a very different score if they have information the others do not). There are online credit-monitoring services that will provide you a single report with all three reports and credit scores.b. A score of over 680 out of 850 will get you a low-rate auto loan. Under 680 will mean a higher rate but a loan is still quite likely. Bad credit begins around 650 and lower. You will be charged high interest no matter where you go, and may not qualify for as large a loan. But it will still be a loan nonetheless.3. Look on the Internet for names of lenders that specialize in bad credit car financing. They can be private lenders, car dealers or any website offering this type of loan help. Compare the rates and terms with what your own bank offers. Make a short list of lenders with good rates and terms.4. Call up the lenders and ask them about their credit guidelines. They will often be reluctant to state a single FICO score, but you can sometimes get them to tell you a range. It’s important to make sure you have a fighting chance at approval before applying. A bunch of rejected loan applications will look bad on your credit report--creating a vicious cycle that makes it even harder to get a loan.Bad Credit Car Loans: A Typical StoryStephen got a credit monitoring service to provide him with his reports from the three credit bureaus, as well as their three FICO scores. He was shocked to find his credit score was 560. He was reported as having defaulted on one of his students loans, which was incorrect. He was able to get that removed quickly. But his credit rating was still well below 650.What should Stephen do now? Of course, Steven should work to repair his credit rating:• Pay all bills on time.• Stay at the same address and the same job for a few years if at all possible.• Contact the lenders who reported negative information to the credit bureaus to see if they will remove it or amend it to emphasize that his accounts were eventually returned to good standing.But in the meantime, Steve needs a car loan. His job isn’t a on a bus route and he can’t pay cash. After careful research on the internet, Steve finds he could get a high-interest bad-credit auto loan. The loan will also give Steve another chance to restore his credit.To take a bite out of the interest, Steve gets a friend of his who’s a mechanic to help him find an inexpensive but reliable used car—which means a smaller loan and therefore smaller interest payments. He also dips[...]



Bad Credit Mortgage Loans – How To Get Approved

2007-08-04T22:53:10.319-07:00

Persistence is the key working toward getting approved for a bad credit mortgage loan. There are many factors that you, as a borrower have control over that can help you get approved faster and easier. There are guidelines that most sub-prime lenders go by that, if you know them, can help you move through the process without getting stuck, unable to get financing.If you have a bankruptcy or foreclosure, even if they are recent, do not despair. Many sub-prime or bad credit mortgage lenders have what’s called, guidelines for bankruptcy or foreclosure seasoning. That means that they have a set amount of time that must go by from the time of a bankruptcy or foreclosure before they will lend to a borrower. Usually this time is 2-3 years, but many sub-prime lenders have no seasoning time, which means, if your credit score is above a certain point, you could get approved the day after your bankruptcy discharge. Other sub-prime lenders have bankruptcy or foreclosure seasoning of 6 months or a year. The biggest factor here will be your credit score.Sub-prime or bad credit mortgage lenders will look closely at your credit score. In order to get 100% financing with bad credit, lenders will usually need to see you have a credit score of at least 600 or higher. There are quite a few things you can do to raise your credit score to be above this 600 mark. Here are a few suggestions:1. Check your credit report for inaccuracies. Make sure all accounts included in bankruptcies and foreclosures are reporting accurately. If they show up as an open collection or unpaid account, charge-off or something else, this could be unnecessarily hurting your credit score. It will look like another, separate credit blemish instead of just the one. Make sure the bankruptcies and foreclosures are reporting accurately. Make sure accounts that are paid off, show up as being paid off, or accounts that are closed, show up as being closed.2. Pay-off any small collection accounts or past due accounts that you can. Every account that you pay off will help boost your score. Once you have done this, get a letter of notification that the account is paid off and talk to your lender. Most lenders have programs where they can, for a $75 fee per item, provide proof to the credit bureaus that an account has been paid off and have your credit and credit score appropriately adjusted within a day or two. This program is sometimes called a “wrap it up” service. If you are in a hurry to get financed, this may be worth it to you.3. Pay down open credit line balances. If you can even pay down the balances on any open lines of credit, this will boost your credit score. Your credit score is lowered when lines of credit are maxed out. You can make good use of your money by paying down credit card balances to boost your score.Once you have used some of these techniques to boost your credit score, be persistent about contacting and applying with many different bad credit mortgage lenders. Many bad credit mortgage loan brokers claim that if they can’t do the loan, then no one can. That is simply not true. All mortgage loan brokers have connections with many different lenders and loan programs. What may be impossible with one, can be very possible with another broker.If your score is around 600 or slightly higher, you will probably have a pre-payment penalty. Pretty much all bad credit mortgage loans will come with a pre-payment penalty. Talk to your lender about the details of the pre-payment penalty. Find out how long the penalty will last and exactly how much money the penalty is. How much is the fine for pre-payment on the loan? This is an important factor to consider when comparing lenders.To get a approved for a bad credi[...]
