Ideal for: Just starting out or rebuilding credit
If you have less than one year of major credit card history OR you know you need to work on improving damaged credit because you have:
- Been declined for other unsecured cards recently or
- Missed bill payments or
- Been contacted by a bill collector in the last year
Our Secured Visa® Credit Card, when used responsibly, can help build and improve your credit record.
Did you know that, according to myFICO.com, 35% of your FICO® Score is based on your payment history? Another 15% of your FICO® Score is based on the length of your credit history. If you do not have an established credit history, it can be difficult to build a credit score high enough to qualify for a mortgage loan. Based on our experience at NewHomePrograms.com, many mortgage lenders are also requiring clients to have at least 2 open trade lines2 before they will agree to help finance a home.
For this reason, the NewHomePrograms.com Secured credit card can be a smart way to begin building a positive credit history. The NewHomePrograms.com Secured Visa® Card is a major credit card (provided by First Bankcard®) secured by a cash deposit and an annual $19 annual fee3. Deposits are as low as $3001 per Secured card, and First Bankcard® is willing to accept your deposit via our online application.
If you do not currently have 2 open trade lines on your credit report, consider applying for a Secured Card to help you establish a positive credit history.
