What do you need the downpayment for? If it's for a mortgage on a house, then most states/counties have downpayment assistance for people. Search for it on Google, or I guess you can look it up in the yellow pages. If you want to search for it put "downpayment assistance" (with the quotations) in the search box and then put the name of your city, and press search. Then go back and try it with your county name. They have a lot of programs out there.

To answer the question, no a lower credit score won't help with anything. Maybe you were trying to ask how to help your low credit score. A few things you can do is pay your bills on time, increase your debt to limit ratio, diversify your credit, and remove negative items and inquiries from your credit.

If you are not able to pay your many student loans, your credit score will be hurt. If you consolidate, you have a better chance of having a lower monthly payment that you can handle. A lower score that you will be able to pay, which in turn will only help your credit score.

If you pay your bills on time and in full each month it will help your credit score rise. If you are late on payments and have outstanding payments then your credit score will become lower. Your credit score is an important thing to help you obtain loans such as car loans or a mortgage.

When you buy your next car, chances are you will need auto loan financing. To get a good interest rate, you will need a good credit score. Sometimes this can be offset with a higher downpayment. In either case, when you are close to purchasing your vehicle, consider waiting a few more months and save up some additional cash. You can then use this cash for your downpayment or to quickly pay off your other debts to get a higher credit score. In either case, a little time and patience can help lower your car payment.

You can get help with the consolidation of your personal loans by first, getting your credit report and FICO score. If your credit score reveals that you actually score quite well and have a reasonable credit rating, you may easily be able to consolidate loans at a lower rate, especially if your credit has improved since you got the loans.

Any bank can help you with your credit score. However it is ultimately up to you what happens to your credit score. Paying bills on time is most important.

The better rates go to those who have the higher credit ratings. If you have a credit rating below 680, your rate will be affected. Downpayment of 20% may also help, but generally there are also differences in rates according to the amount you borrow.

No, but it doesn't help your credit score either. In order to build and maintain your credit score, you need to use credit on a monthly basis.

If you have a history of payments made on time and lived up to the agreement..you betcha! We paid off our mortgage 5 years ago and our credit score has decreased according to the credit bureaus this is due to the fact that we do not have a mortgage. The longer we go without a mortgage (or car loan) the lower our credit score goes. That is because the credit score is based on available credit against what you owe. But having no mortgage is a huge plus when it comes to making a large purchase because what you owe based on your income will be a lower percentage.

It is important to have a good credit score so that you can get financial help for yourself. But before you go checking your score to see what it is, it is important that you understand that you can lower your score each time you check it online. In general, a person loses five points off of their credit score each time they check it. You are only allowed to check this number once a year without worrying about losing anything. The more you check your score, the lower it will become and the more you will hurt your financial stability.

The length you've had a card does help your credit score. That's why they say to keep the old ones. Plus your ratio of available credit to your balance is important.
