If you have ever had to declare bankruptcy, then you are also wondering if there ever will be a way to recover from having to undergo such a process. Quite possibly, it has already been a couple of years since the declaration, and you currently see no end in sight. Here are some things that you can do to help achieve, with some time, the financial freedom that you want – again.
One great thing that you have on your side to help you recover is the fact that there is a lot of competition out there to give loans. This means that a banker knows that if he does not give you a loan, then someone else will – and they get the profit, hopefully. So, the bottom line here is that just because you declared bankruptcy yesterday, it does not mean that you are not eligible for a loan today.
Another feature that you do not want to forget, if you are trying to buy a house, is that the house will increase in value due to the equity that is built up. A lender always knows that if you can’t pay, at least can still get their money out of it – in most cases.
The Cause Of Your Bankruptcy
Depending on what caused your bankruptcy, and some other details, it may also serve as a justification for your being able to get the loan you want. This would be especially true if some major illness brought on the great debt, or an accident, or another unforeseeable event. If this is the case, and if you can relate these details to a listening lender, then you may be headed for a loan.
Your Present Situation
This is probably the greatest asset you have that will enable you to get the financing you want. A possible lender wants simply to be able to see that you have a current ability to pay off your present bills. They may take a little harder look at your finances – but the good news is that they are willing to look. Quite possibly, the one thing that will matter the most that will demonstrate your ability to pay, could be the fact that you have been employed at the same place for more than a couple of years.
If you are looking to rebuild your credit rating as fast as possible, and want to wait a little on the big loans, then here is a way to do it. While it is possible to get a loan for something like a house, you will still have to pay a rather high interest on the loan. The fact that you declared bankruptcy earlier will remain on your credit rating for 10 full years, and every potential lender will know about it. By waiting a little, and building your credit rating, you could become eligible once again for a more attractive loan with a lower interest rate.
An easy way to build your credit up again is by getting a secure credit card. By making all your payments on time, and in full each month, your credit rating will get better before long. Having a second credit card that is wisely used can even speed up the process a little more. Then add a small loan that you are sure to be able to pay off in a short period of time.
