Although the amount of debt owed by U.S. households has decreased to almost 2 percent, it still remains at more than $11 trillion. One of the major contributors is the credit card debt, which sits at over $850 million, at an average of $15,300. The others are mortgages and student loans. What does this data mean? A lot of U.S. families are actually having such a hard time paying off their debts. If they default, they affect their credit score tremendously that they may only experience more difficulty getting worthy loans. To make matters worse, if they continue to stop paying their dues, they may eventually declare bankruptcy, pulling their score down even further.
All hope is not lost, though. There are many ways on how to lift the credit score, make the report a lot better again, and even get around some of the loopholes of the credit bureaus. You learn all this from a brilliant writer.
