What Is a Subprime Auto Loan?
A Subprime Auto Loan is typically used for low credit scores, but it may also be used when someone has no credit. Your creditworthiness is a significant deal to a lender when they're contemplating you for a loan. There are several things lenders will want to know about your credit. Primarily, they will look at your:
- Payment-to-income Ratio
- Debt-to-income Ratio
When considering your debt-to-income ratio, a lender wants to see that your income is higher than the total you pay out each month by about 50 percent. As for the payment-to-income balance, lenders want to know how the monthly payment comes combined with your total monthly income.
How Credit Scores Affect Car Loans?
Your credit score is the highest determining factor that lenders look at when determining whether or not they want to lend you money. A credit score is calculated based on:
- Credit Utilization
- Length of Credit History
- Payment History
Credit utilization looks at how much available credit you're using when you apply for a loan. Your payment history is about if you make your debt payments on time each month. How long you have been using your current credit account is the length of your credit history. All these aspects will contribute to your overall credit score.
