PostHeaderIcon Is there any option for debt consolidation if you are NOT in default with good credit but no equity?

Are there less risky unsecured financing options for those with good credit outside local banks who want secured credit? We want to pay off debt at lower interest than credit cards currenly held. Any options out there besides all the scary ones?

    ask your credit card company to lower the rate, or transfer balances to lower rate cards

    I work in insolvency so I come across this everyday! The only way to do it is if you keep transferring the balance onto other cards. If you have a lot of cards though it’s very risky and a lot of hassle. It’s generally better to just pay off as much as you can every month as you won’t pay as much interest!
    You could always take out ONE low rate credit card for a few months to use for your living expenses and then use your income to pay back the other cards. It depends very much on what you owe on them but in my job id really advise that you pay thm off asap and never use them again unless for emergencies or you can afford to pay off the whole balance every month!

    Since you are not in default you can call the credit card company and ask to have your interest rate lowered. If they won’t lower it, you can open a new 0% interest rate card and transfer your balance. The 0% introductory rate usually last 6-12 months and you could pay off your credit card in that time period. If you have more than one high interest rate card, transfer as much as you can to the new 0% card from your highest interest rate cards. With luck you can transfer ALL of your high interest rate credit card debt to low or 0% cards. After you get your transfers done follow this system:

    Pay the minimum due on all of them and then put your extra money towards paying off the highest interest one first. After you get that one paid off, you put the money you were paying on card #1 (the minimum payment and the extra payment) towards card #2. That will pay card #2 off faster. When that is paid off, you put all three payments towards card #3 and that one will be paid off pretty quickly. As an example:

    To start :
    Card #1 (highest interest): minimum payment+ extra payment
    Card #2 (middle interest): minimum payment
    Card #3(lowest interest): minimum payment

    Card #1: paid off
    Card #2: minimum payment from Card #1+ Minimum payment from Card #2 +extra payment
    Card #3: minimum payment

    Card #1: paid off
    Card #2: paid off
    Card #3:Mimimum payment from card #1+ minimum payment from Card #2+ minimum payment from Card #3+ extra payment.

    That way, you will get them all paid off, on time, and pay the least interest. It will also help towards rebuilding your credit since you will no longer have any late payments. This works no matter how many different debts you may have.

    You can go for a unsecured debt consolidation loan where you can get a low interest rate compared to any banks and the added advantage would be, it will also improve your credit score as subsequent payments are made to pay off the new loan.

    Here is one of the source which I know of a debt consolidation company named http://ezconsolidation.com for your reference.
