If you have a reseasonably good record of credit. Even if you were between jobs, but made every effort to pay off your debts this would look good on your record. If you constantly missed payments and made no attempt to pay them off your chances aren't good. If you have collateral and it isn't used for a loan then you could use that collateral to get your loan. Banks love to make one feel that if they have a lousy credit rating that they won't loan them money for something small such as a car, but the opposite is true. Cars are easy turn-overs, so banks can make money of them. A house is harder for banks to deal with. Credit cards companies in especially the U.S. and Canada just LOVE to have people sign up, spend like there is no tomorrow and they make plenty of money off missed payments. Most people never stop to figure out the percentage on their credit cards (they may know the %) but when they see their balance and then they start to add up the interest building on that balance it's mind boggling and it's tough for people to get out of credit card debt. Something else most people don't know, they can haggle with the credit card company to lower their rate of interest in order to pay that debt off. Go to your bank manager and see what they can do for you. If you have a poor credit rating and haven't paid off all your bills and a loan company practically ties you down to sign that contract for a loan to get a car, run fast and hard! They know that you can't really afford it and 9 chances out of 10 they'll take the car back if you miss payments. Also, their interest rates are much higher than banks. Good luck Marcy

Where can you go in Virginia Beach to get a loan with no credit?

People will be better able to answer your question if we know what kind of loan. Your question is partially posted under the tag of Student Loans. If that is the loan type you seek you really don't have to worry too much about your credit in most cases. Many student loans are backed by the US Government and since they are designed for students, most lenders expect you to have little or no credit. Visit your Financial Aid Office for a list of lenders and to start the application process. If you are looking for another loan type, having no credit is going to be a problem. Lenders need to know what sort of risk you are, both to protect themselves and to answer to their investors and auditors. Your best bet is to start with a small secured credit card, department store card or student card and begin to build credit.

Find Auto Loans with Bad Credit?

If a person is seeking to take out an auto loan and does not have good credit, then he or she should not lose hope. There are ways to get bad credit auto loans without worrying that a person will be unable to qualify. No credit check auto loans do not require a person to have a credit check, which is very beneficial to people that do not have good credit scores or credit ratings. This can truly present great opportunities for people who need to take out loans but do not have the financial sort of backing to qualify for ordinary loans. Bad credit auto loans allow a person to focus his or her financial resources on other areas of a person's financial life. A person may need to pay off other credit cards with required payments due, and a bad credit auto loan can allow a person to use other funds for such a payment. It is truly a great idea for a person to pay off credit cards, before trying to pay off a car payment that could be paid with a car loan.

Unfortunately debt can never be a good thing as such.
