Credit Matters

Autumn is upon us, and there’s a familiar chill in the air. For some of us, it’s a favourite time of the year.

A great time to snap and share colourful pictures, to spend time at the park, to walk the dog, to enjoy a final round of golf with your buds, to get back to work and school, to watch the kids play soccer, to go to a football game, and most importantly, to get yourself, your finances, your home, and your vehicles ready and in reliable shape for winter.

Many of these activities come with a cost attached to them. You know this. We all know this.

Do you have the funds to pay for it all? Many don’t.

Credit is, as a matter of fact, debt. Take on too much debt, and you’ll discover that what you once believed was good is now actually quite bad and it can, at times, weigh you down and put quite a damper on your activities and your lifestyle.

If you woke up to discover that you’re really not richer than you think, then why not try applying what you do know. Do you know what your credit rating is? Check out Equifax Canada and TransUnion to learn more.

In the weeks ahead, I hope to blog on topics that I’ve come across or read about online. The focus will be on finances and financing. Good credit matters and bad credit matters. I hope these topics will ring true, be relevant, and of course, hold your interest.

Call AAR Financial or apply online now for a personal loan. If you have had bad credit in the past, we may be able to help. We’ll do our best to let you know within 24 hours if you’ve been pre-approved.
