How To Apply For Loans With No Bank Account
Perhaps some of you are wondering how you can apply for a loan without a bank account, if you don't have any existing account yet. This is common for young students and some people who are out of work due to the current economic fiasco. There are ways to go around this circumstance and they are totally legitimate, meaning you would not get in trouble if you go this route. So what steps should you take in order to proceed with your loan application without proving to the lender that you have a bank account?
1. Get a loan cosigner to help you get a loan. If you have a friend or know someone who has good credit and a stable financial account and who is capable and willing of cosigning for you so you can obtain a loan, ask that individual for assistance. Your parents or siblings are usually a great source for help in financial matters. Don't be bashful in approaching your friends as well because true friends do not let their buddies down so they will cosign for you in your loan application. Just make sure that they understand that you need their help because you do not have a bank account yet in place.
2. Establish your own credit. While enjoying the benefits of being assisted by a qualified individual in your loan application, you can now build your own credit so that in the future you will no longer require the cosigning of others for you to obtain loans. Start small like getting a basic calling plan with a local mobile phone distributor and then attempt to move on to bigger scheme of things at a later juncture. With good credit, you can easily sign up for multiple bank accounts with any major financial institution.
3. Sign up for credit cards. Get one of the major credit cards such Visa, MasterCardand American Express, but never register with all of them. A card or two should work for you in any emergency as long as you know how to use them. Don't be a compulsive buyer but rather use your cards only for emergencies and unavoidable circumstances. Learn to control your spending habits so that you will not go over your credit limits because that's how financial problems usually start. Remember you have to pay back, not only your loans, but your credit card companies as well so take it easy on spending using those cards.
4. Pay your bills consistently and on time. Practice consistency in paying your debts and bills. Your outstanding payment history will be a great plus when it is time for you to apply for your personal loans and bank account. So keep paying your bills on time and do not use your credit cards excessively to avoid debts from piling up. This would not only make you feel good but it's also the right thing to do.
Being financially stable is everybody's dream but it does not happen in a flash, unless of course you are a descendant of Oprah Winfrey or Bill Gates. Just be focus and be consistent in all of your financial dealings and before you know it, you will no longer need assistance in applying for any loan and your financial stability will be set in stone. There is really nothing better than having multiple bank accounts with lots of cash available for withdrawal and spending, but for now, you just have to rely on other’s resources to help you get through the hump.
