Too Much Installment Credit can Hurt your Credit Rating

Too much installment credit can hurt your credit Many homeowners are shocked when they get a look at their credit reports. Even those who pay their bills on time and maintain low credit-card balances can have a less-than-perfect rating. How is that possible?

Your credit picture reflects a number of different aspects of your borrowing behavior. For example, you may have several open credit-card accounts with high limits. That means you could borrow a lot of money in a short period of time, which might worry a new lender who’s thinking about extending you still more credit. It’s best to keep just one or two credit-card accounts open and to keep their balances low.
