Eliminating Debt through our Consolidation Method
If you are like most Canadians, most of your income is dedicated to paying off credit card bills, car loans, and that new plasma TV. It is in our DNA to spend money on pleasures we can enjoy today, rather than saving for that rainy day.
According to the BOC (Bank of Canada), lending at chartered banks has dwindled recently, except on consumer credit – which continues to swell.
Personal lines of credit expanded to a new high of $181 billion outstanding in April 2009, an increase of 6.2 per cent year-to-date, and up 20.4 per cent from a year earlier. This type of debt has bloated from $100 billion five years ago and less than $50 billion at the start of the decade. Personal loans from banks total $48.5 billion, up 8.1 per cent from a year earlier, and bank credit-card receivables are up 8.9 per cent at $51.5 billion. Debt consolidation is a realistic solution to thwart off creditors and ultimately avoid bankruptcy. If you are a homeowner, one of the best tools available to you, is the equity in your home. Refinancing your home to pay off debts is a great way to tighten up your budget and coordinate your debts into one manageable payment.
In most cases, the interest you will save from paying off high interest credit cards will drastically reduce your monthly output. Credit card interest rates can be as high as 29% whereas mortgage rates are currently at all time lows.
Your credit score (otherwise known as a Beacon) is your ticket to receiving loans, credit products, and is used to determine your “likelihood” to pay back a debt. Banks and other loan institutions use your beacon score to determine the interest rate they will offer to you. Therefore maintaining an excellent beacon score should be your number one priority. A bruised credit rating is difficult to overcome, and takes time to rebuild a strong history.
