Question:

How does debt consolidation work for non homeowners?

Answer:

There are many ways for debt consolidation programs to work for you, but how does debt consolidation work best for non-homeowners?

First, you have to admit you do have problems managing your finances. Of course, you want the best car, rent a great apartment but if you are buried with bills you can't really afford to pay, you should seek debt counseling and find out how debt consolidation will work for you.

One way out is to have your credit cards payments consolidated on a single account - 0% interest will be introductory, but you may get the chance to talk to the credit company to get you real low rate after the initial period expires, which may be possible depending on how much you are bringing in. Once you transfer your balances, you may start paying over the minimum payment require by the credit card company. In that way you'll be hitting the principal of your debt and will soon notice the positive effect.

If you have real good credit talking with a lender about a personal loan with low rate may be the right way to make debt consolidation work for you. However, if you are not a perfect credit type, do not bother. Debt consolidation will not work with a personal loan with high rates and you are only going to incur more high interest debt.

Another way to make unsecured debt consolidation work is to approach a debt relief company. Given the number of people struggling with their unsecured debt, the debt relief industry has flourished and there are real professional agencies that can negotiate debt reduction and make debt consolidation work successfully for you. Of course, there will be fees to pay, but often they are covered by the percentage of debt they manage to drop off your shoulders.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
