What is Credit?
Your credit or most importantly your credit score is a history of your borrowing habits that grade you on a scale from 300 to 850. This three-digit number affects your interest rates on loans, credit cards, and can even determine if a landlord will rent to you without a sizable deposit. Factors such as credit usage, length of credit, your on-time payment history, and even how many “hard inquiries” you have on your credit report all affect your overall credit score. Here at Barlow Motors in Calgary, AB we don’t judge a person on their current credit score and are able to help customers with a less than ideal credit score rebuild their credit as well.
