Credit Card Debt

When trying to get out of debt; understand that subprime loans may cost you more in the long run. This is because they’re offered to people to do not qualify for a conventional loan either because of a high loan to value ratio or poor credit history. For lenders, subprime loans are more risky than prime loans, but often, that is all the borrower can qualify for. Struggle with job loss, serious medical diagnosis, divorce, or other serious financial hardships? If so, then you are like many Wisconsin families who are stuck with subprime loans. As a result, you end up paying more than others.

Subprime Borrowers Pay More

Confidence in how likely you are to repay a loan is a pretty big deal. A high debt to income ratio, or low credit score are big red flags for prime lenders. For example: In the United States, a FICO credit score of 720 or above is considered “little to no risk” to lenders. If fortunate enough to be considered a low risk borrower, more banks will offer their best interest rates. If “high risk,” then banks will be less confident that loans will get paid back. Once in this situation, there are fewer options. You may get stuck having to pay high monthly payments, high interest rates, adjustable rates or interest-only with a subprime lender.

Some of the most common subprime loans are:

  • Mortgages
  • Car Loans
  • Payday Loans
  • Student Loans
  • Credit Cards

Stop Vicious Circle Of Debt

If debt to income ratio worsens and credit scores continue to drop, it is not uncommon for subprime borrowers to default on loans. This is not a good situation for borrowers, lenders, or the economy. What it creates is a vicious circle of debt. To get out of subprime loans, the best advice is to clear debt so that you can begin to build credit and in turn, improve credit scores. This takes some time, but it can be done. As a consumer, you have legal rights. Debt Advisors will help you learn about those rights and provide sound advice.
