Boost Your Credit By Buying a Used Car

Couple looking at documents

When you’re looking to buy a used car, you may think that you need perfect credit and excess money and that if you don’t have either, getting a loan will be difficult. There are dealerships out there that are willing to help people who need to build their credit, require a smaller down payment (than a typical dealership), and will help provide you with a solution within your means. The goal is to build your credit while having reliable transportation. Combining research and awareness often times leads used car buyers to find dealerships that offer $500 down programs as a possible solution.

How Does It Work?
Dealers that can offer in-house financing understand that not everyone has perfect credit and make getting approved easier than a traditional bank or finance company.

Change Your Mindset.
One way to build or rebuild your credit is by making on-time payments on a car loan. If you have bad or no credit, getting a loan can feel overwhelming, but if you choose a used car and can put as little as $500 down, you can start rebuilding your credit.

How do you get a loan if you have bad credit?
Banks are not always willing to give loans to people without good credit, but many dealerships have $500 down auto financing programs available. This means, for as little as $500 down and on-time payments, you can start improving your credit score. As you improve your credit score, getting approved for credit cards and other loans becomes easier.
