The real estate investor’s credit score solution: the benefits of a business credit card.
Business credit cards are a no-brainer alternative to using your personal cards for your real estate investments.
Most real estate investors use a credit card to pay for the expenses involved in fixing up properties. Doing this, however, raises your balance, which increases your usage. Usage makes up 30% of your credit score, so keeping high balances on your personal card can significantly lower your score.
Weigh the Credit Benefits of a Business Card
It’s important to get all investing expenses off your credit. It not only impacts your business, but it impacts your personal life, too. When you need a personal mortgage, or a new car, or a boat… Your lender will check your credit, and they’ll see the bad score if your usage is out of whack from your business.
A business credit card solves your credit problems in two ways:
- It helps your credit score. Moving these balances onto a business card takes them off your personal credit. Business credit won’t impact your personal score. This will allow you to get better outside funding.
- It’s a form of fast, easy, cheap funding. It still allows you the convenience of a credit card – and sometimes at a better rate.
The “best” business credit card for a real estate investor is one that does not show up on your personal report.
