Want to buy a repossessed property on auction, but afraid you will not qualify for a home loan? We all know that right now is a good time to invest in property. So, why not save some more money and buy yourself a repossessed property?

However, in order to buy a property you need to have a healthy and good credit track record. Here are some basic tips you can follow in order to maintain a healthy credit track record:

  • Establish a good credit score:

Without you even knowing it, your bank is keeping an eye on your payments and non-payments. These are being recorded, which make up your credit score.

  • Do not exceed your repayment limits:

When buying a property, the bank will establish what percentage of your salary you can spend per month. This is to ensure that there are sufficient funds in case the interest rate rises.

  • Save for a sufficient deposit:

The bigger deposit you can guarantee the bank, the better chance you have of your home loan being granted. Don’t see this as an obstacle to buy a property. Keep in mind that your loan amount will be less. This means that your repayments will be less.

  • Avoid preventable debt:

This is the most important factor. Pay your current debt off as soon as possible, and avoid more debt.
