Problems and Solutions Concerning Credit and Credit Score:

Part 1: As part of series of articles (blogs) regarding Credit and Credit Score, here we start:

In todays tough economic times, where every person is being judged by his/her number (credit score), having good credit and credit score is more important than ever before. You need to have good credit just to rent an apartment, rent a car, open a bank account, get auto and home insurance, get a job, buy a car or obtain a home mortgage.

Just a few points on your score can make the difference in obtaining home loan, auto loan, or even a credit card.

Depending on your credit score, you could be denied a loan, offered a normal interest rate, or offered a loan with higher than normal rate and/or require to put more money down. Like most cases in finance, those with the lowest risks get to pay the lowest rates.
