Hello everyone


I am in need of a car, I have come across a late model truck that I like 2003 ford expedition with about 160,000 miles. for 3,000. I have a account with navy federal my Equifax score is 616 fico and my Transunion and score is 685. I have 4 neg on my Equifax report not paid and one paid all under 800.00. I rather have a pull from Transunion but navy always pulls from Equifax. What are my chances of getting this loan. I will be paying it off in 4 months because I am trying to buy a home. I am looking for a loan for 2000.

Most times a personal (unsecured) loan or a credit card would be used for a case like this. The car is too old and the amount too small for a typical car loan. Do you have any positive credit (good open accounts) now?

      I am the newest girl in navy blue!
      Totally giddy. I read so many great things about NFCU here.
      Just got off the phone with the recruiter's office which is open 24/7.
      My mom is a DoD civilian at Vandenburg.
      How long to wait until I should apply for a CC or CLOC? And which one(s)?
      Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks in advance!

      After many years of paying rent we have decided we want a home of our own. Would 18 months be too early to start the mortgage process? Here is our story...bear with me it's long,
      Back in December of 2012 we closed our accounts at a traditional bank and moved our accounts to a credit union (bank was giving us no love even when we never overdraft in the 5 years with them). September of 2013 requested a CC from credit union and received it. Been keeping uti under 10% paying off each paycheck. November we received a car loan with credit union for a 7.99% interest for $33,000, paying on time, never late. Husband is an authorized user on brother's AMEX to help build credit.
      In other words we didn't have good credit. Husband's "baddies" will fall off in 2015. My baddies were all medical from hospitalization in 2012. Used WhyChat's method and they are all gone! In September I went on a CC spree and obtain a Capital One CC, Wal-Mart and Care Credit (joint with husband) for me and for husband a Valero, Care Credit and Target. Will keep balances down to at the most 1% and pay off each month.
      My credit scores are as follows: EQ 637, EX 615, TU 611 (Very excited about my scores, this time last year they were all in the low 500s!)
      Husbands scores are as follows: EQ 600, EX 559, TU 614 (He has 5 baddies, scheduled to fall off by 2015)
      We are planning on using our Credit Union since we are building a relationship with them, with the car loan and cc. I was also planning on April of 2015 obtaining one more CC, not a store card, to help our portfolio. Should I or should I not???
      I need advice on what we need to do to bring our scores up by May of 2016 to obtain a mortgage at a good rate. I hear that 620 is the rate some loan companies will approve. I want at least a low 700 or very high 600 before we start looking. Would love a 720 to 750 on all! My husband's score will go up once the "baddies" are gone. I am worried about how recent our credit will be and if that would be an issue on obtaining a mortgage.
      Need to also mention, both of us have two jobs and nickel and diming everything to save at least 20% to put down on a place. I've been at my current full time employment for over 9 years, husband just switched jobs in October, 2013 so he has been there a year.
      Would we be able to obtain a mortgage loan in 18 months???

      Hey there,
      I recently turned 18 and want to get a new car on my own (parents won't co-sign). I am considering leasing or financing a BMW, as my car is a bit older. The problem is that I haven't developed credit yet. What isn't a problem is my income, I make plenty to pay for the lease estimate ($550/month). I also won't have a problem getting insurance or setting up an auto pay or anything like that either.
      So, before I go to a dealership and make a fool out of myself (if I can't pull it off), I was wondering what options are available and any ideas.
      Thanks a bunch.

      Hi all-
      Quick question.
      My good friend owns a home that has recently appraised at around $825,000. He has 1 mortgage and that's for $398,000. His income is roughly $42k per year. His credit is bad/fair, no bankruptcies or foreclosures, mainly charged off cards.
      We're wondering, does anyone think he could qualify for a loan for $80,000 based on the equity in his home? We've yet to apply anywhere; first wanted to run this past the pros here. (I'm usually over in the credit forum).
      Oh, and if so, with whom do you think he should apply?
