Car Loan After a Foreclosure

Steps to a Better Car Loan After Foreclosure!
Keys in ignition

There was once a time in America where having a foreclosure was seen as a major barrier to your credit.

But after the rocky financial situation of the past years, it became clear that even hard-working, responsible people can experience a home foreclosure.

Although a foreclosure can cause a bump in your credit, securing an auto loan after it happens is easier than ever, but there are some things that you should consider to increase your chances.

Follow These Tips

Check and cash payments

Make a Large Down Payment

The fact is that no matter what your credit situation or financial history, a down payment can play a significant role in your car loan. When a lender sees that you have a larger down payment, it shows your commitment and responsibility.

After all, if you have the discipline to save a large down payment, you likely have the disciple to make regular car payments. This is even more prevalent after a foreclosure.

Longer Auto Loan Period

While a down payment is always the best approach, it is not necessary, as you can still secure a loan without it.

The amount of months dedicated to a loan will make a difference in your payments as well. If you have experienced a foreclosure, you may want to consider a longer loan period. Adding months to your loan and spreading out the payments over a longer period can help you have lower monthly payments and give lenders more reason to believe that you can handle the loan.
