Generally speaking, high credit score makes a process of obtaining any kind of loan less messy and at a lower interest rate. While applying for a mortgage or a vehicle loan, all lenders and banks will most probably find you as a credible customer who can be relied on.

    1. Do you pay your bills on time?

    Most organised people have created systems that help them pay off the bills on time. The best thing about it is that you may make up anything you want yourself – either you make a calendar, or you just set up a gadget application that reminds you of every single payment.

    2. How often do you check your credit score reports?

    It goes without saying how essential it is to have a realistic image of all mistakes, faults and ups of the credit score in order to improve it in the future. Maybe you did not know about that – but you can get a free copy of all the credit reports every 12 months. It usually shows all payments on personal loans and credit cards.

    3. Are you a loyal credit card user?

But how many credit cards in general do you have and actually use? Basically, you do not need more than two or three maximum. If this number is higher, dispose of credit card balances that have high interest rate as you are just wasting your funds.

    4. Do you have a monthly budget?

    Basic principle of economics is the following: if your income does not cover your expenses – it will not work. Still there is a huge “but” – you also need to maintain the budget in order to keep the system going.
