How to Build Credit - An Infographic from Creditnet

While we get a lot of questions at Creditnet in regards to building credit quickly, the truth of the matter is that building your credit score is really a lifelong journey. Credit history is one of the most important things lenders consider when evaluating your credit worthiness, and without it your chances of getting approved for a mortgage to buy your dream home can fall flat.

There are several things one can do to build credit history over time, from applying for a credit card to making on-time payments and keeping your debt low. To make things easier, Creditnet put together a helpful infographic on how to build credit below. You see - it really is a lifelong story!
