Debt Consolidation Loans
A debt consolidation loan is a viable option for a consumer who has a low debt to income ratio, high credit score, and sufficient income.
If the bank is willing to give you a loan with a low-interest rate – in this case, debt consolidation is an excellent option.
If you can replace bad debt with good debt – go for it! Debt consolidation loans can pay off everything from your car payment to credit card debt.
Unfortunately; most of the alternative lenders (outside of bank loans) – charge high fees and interest rates. A debt consolidation loan should be used to save money, not rack on more debt and costs.
What about a home equity line of credit over a debt consolidation loan?
If you own a home and have sufficient equity in it, getting a home equity line of credit will be a better option in many cases, over getting your typical “bank loan”. It is common; to get a home equity line of credit where your interest rate could be below 6%. Having good credit and owning a home, is required to get a home equity line of credit.
If you cannot get a low-interest bank loan or home equity loan, what other debt consolidation options do you have?
If your goal is to become debt-free; consumer credit counseling, debt validation or debt settlement may be a better option for you, over debt consolidation.

Debt Consolidation Loans to Improve Credit Scores
Once you get a debt consolidation loan and pay off all of your credit card balances, don’t close the cards out. By closing your credit card accounts – this action hurts your credit score. Pay the debts off and keep your cards open. Use them once per month – just make sure to pay the entire balance off when the bill arrives. By doing this, you will stay out of debt and increase your credit score.
