Are you looking to make the first-time jump to car ownership? Buying a car for the first time can be intimidating. You may worry that you don’t have enough money for a down-payment, or that your credit isn’t high enough to get a good deal. Knowing this can make you want to skip all the hassle and continue to bike to work, or buy a cheap clunker that just barely makes the cut to be called a car.
Don’t let this stop you from pursuing your dream of car ownership. Not only can we help you get a quality, reliable car that will fit your specific needs, but we will also guide you through the process and alleviate any concern that you may have.
There are many unseen advantages of owning a car.
You will see your credit improve
Many people looking to buy a car for the first time have never applied for a loan before. This means that your credit has never had a strong foundation to be built on. When you open an auto-loan or a mortgage, the credit bureaus understand that this is a serious commitment and when you make your payments on time, they will reward you with credit boosts. It also adds diversity to your credit history.
When your credit is entirely dependent on credit cards, it won’t be very strong. It also doesn’t allow for much leniency if you miss a payment on a credit card, which is easy to do. An auto-loan in your credit profile carries much more weight than a credit card. The more debt that you have open, and the more variety in those accounts (credit cards, auto loans, mortgages), the more robust your credit will be.
Even if you currently have bad credit, we can find you a deal that fits your needs. Not only will you get your car, but you will also be strengthening your credit along the way. It’s like two birds with one stone.
It can help you buy a house
If you’re looking towards the future and know that home-ownership is a goal for you, owning a car is even more critical. When you get your credit pulled by a mortgage company, your auto-loan has a more substantial impact on your score than credit cards. There are even some loan programs that require you to have either a mortgage or an auto loan to qualify.

You don’t need to break the bank for the down payment
Many first-time car buyers think that you have to come to the table with thousands of dollars to get a good deal. That is not the case at all. We have programs that can help you get a car for as little as $500, or even $0 down. Whatever your situation is, there is a deal out there for you, and we will be able to find it for you.
The idea of walking into a dealership with $500 or less and leaving with a dependable vehicle may seem far fetched to you, but it happens every day.
This is why it’s so important to team up with knowledgeable professionals who have a history of helping people just like you. We specialize in auto loans for people with bad credit and have helped thousands of people in situations just like yours.
