Most car purchases require a loan. Many of the higher-end cars like Maseratis and Porsches are leased.

Short of paying with cash, you are going to need excellent credit before you can drive away in a new vehicle. You may need at least average credit just to be approved for a new car loan or lease.

In all cases, poor credit will prevent you from getting what you want.

In most states, insurance companies offer their lowest rates to the most reliable and responsible clients. A good credit score is one of the criteria they use to determine if you are a good risk.

Unfortunately, those with poor credit, from individuals to entire low income neighborhoods, are those that pay the highest possible rates for car insurance.

Most employers look at credit history in their background checks. A great credit score is one way of proving accountability. A bad score can be a red flag.

Credit scores can give you a significant edge in just about any higher income occupation, from New York to Silicon Valley.

One Good Credit prepares members for their home purchase goals. That starts with strategic credit services to be prepared for loan qualifications.

Our goal: To not just buy a home... but buy a bigger and/or better new house.

Credit affects every aspect of your life.

Unless you are independently wealthy, and able to buy homes and cars with cash, you need credit. The better your credit status, the better terms for every dollar you ever borrow.

No credit is as bad as bad credit, and can take many years to grow. You pay the most, or fail to qualify for rentals, credit cards, new jobs, car insurance, mortgages and more.

We begin with education and evaluation. From there, we develop and execute a strategic plan to help build a solid financial foundation that makes for greater opportunities and fewer debt and credit issues, for the rest of your life.

One Good Credit will evaluate your credit status, and create a strategic plan for the short and long term. We pay particularly close attention to urgent situations such as a pending home purchase.

Any dispute process may take a few months, up to a year or more. We have strategies to expedite problem cases.

When the timing is right, we will begin building new lines of credit. This process is continuous, and together with credit education and planning, meant to last a lifetime.

No... Credit monitoring involves researching the offering for sale of your personal data, with insurance to pay for any recovery after the fact. Credit monitors do NOT prevent identity theft. They warn you after confirming that your specific identity is being listed on the "Dark Web" (the underground Internet).

Let One Good Credit remove any doubt.

Your personal data, including name and social security number, have been stolen from one source after the next, throughout your life. We can all but guarantee that your data is available to any and all buyers through a volume of criminal elements, from lowlife individuals to organized crime syndicates operating online markets comparable to eBay.

One Good Credit manages everything.

Be prepared for the unexpected.

Credit Cards are certainly a viable option, with easy "cash on demand."

An important note to consider: If the money you need totals more than 29% of your available line of credit, expect to lower your credit score. The higher the percentage, the lower your score, at least until you pay off the amount above 29%.

Beware of the path of least resistance: "Cash Advance"

It is all but a legal form of extortion.

You will pay a significant percentage of the funds in an up-front fee, and the maximum possible interest rate!

For many cards, when you make a payment that is greater than your minimum payment, those funds repay the cash advance money first, regardless of other spending dates.

It may be smart to check with your credit card company BEFORE you take a cash advance. Ask for a clear and full explanation of your costs. If you have more than one card, which you would through our Credit Building service, you could choose the account with the best terms.

We live in a world where credit determines how you live, where you live and how you get there.
