If you have poor credit, you likely feel its effects on a regular basis. And you are probably tired of being denied for credit cards and loan options. The desire to repair bad credit is a noble one, but you should know in advance that it will basically involve a complete overhaul of your credit habits and patterns. Here are some steps to take if you seriously want to repair bad credit.

  1. Pay off outstanding bills. You cannot move forward with credit report repair if you are being dragged down by preexisting debt.
  2. Remove false information from your report. Most people have incorrect information on their credit reports. Write to the Credit-Reporting Agencies and contest any misinformation. This will give you a fair chance at rebuilding your credit.
  3. Don’t make too many inquiries. Asking for multiple copies of your credit report and weekly checking your credit score can actually make your credit worse.
  4. Get a credit card. While this may seem counterproductive if you are already in debt, the secret will be using your new card to establish good credit patterns. If your credit is such that you cannot acquire a traditional card, try either a secured credit card or one from your local bank. Some department stores also offer charge cards.
  5. Use your credit card wisely. Make carefully selected purchases using your new card, and immediately pay back the amount in full. Do not use the card unless you have the money to pay off the amount you spend. The idea here is to show the Credit Bureau that you have what it takes to earn your credit back.
  6. Pay your bills on time. Your credit report will not improve if you slip back into the poor habit of making your payments late or not at all.
  7. Establish healthy and frugal spending patterns. Continue to spend wisely and you will be well on your way to improving your credit report.

Replacing bad credit with good is no small task. Credit report repair takes dedication, discipline, and courage. But if you are determined to repair bad credit, it is certainly possible! Once you get started, the key will be not giving up. You have to earn a good credit report. It will not be handed to you on a proverbial silver platter. Work hard, and you can do it!
