Having a high credit score is one of the most important and helpful things you can achieve before buying a home. A solid credit history will give you a better chance of being approved for the home loan you want and getting a lower interest rate so that you know you’re getting a good deal on your first home.

But, as any renter can tell you, it can sometimes be difficult to lift your credit score when you’ve got so many other things to worry about.

In today’s post, I’m going to cover the best ways to build credit while renting an apartment so you can lift your score to an amount that will help you achieve your goal of homeownership.

1. Take over the bills

If you live with roommates or with your family, one good way to start building your credit score is to simply put more bills in your name.

If you’re certain that you’ll be able to make on-time payments on them each month, this can be a way to boost your score without much thought.

Keep in mind, however, that not all utility companies report your payments to credit bureaus, so it’s a good idea to check that yours does before putting the bills in your name.

2. Become an authorized user

If taking out new credit isn’t an option for you, becoming an authorized user on someone else’s credit account can help you increase your score.

Be sure to find out whether the credit issuer reports payments for authorized users before taking this step. And, once you’re sure that they do, you can be added to the account without changing anything about your spending.

3. Convince your landlord to report your rental payments

In most cases, rental payments aren’t reported to the credit bureaus. However, it is becoming more common. Check to see if your landlord uses a service like PayYourRent or RentTrack. If not, consider asking them to try it out.

4. Solving the “no credit” problem

Since we all start off with a blank slate in terms of credit history, some renters have the issues of not having enough credit information to start building their score.

If this is the case, it might be a good idea to open your first credit account. But, wait! Before you start racking up debt on your first credit card, take a minute to make a wise plan.

First, don’t change your spending habits just because you have credit. Pick a card that offers rewards in the form of cash back, and only use your card for things like gas and groceries that will help you earn points.

Then, set your card to auto-pay in full each month so that you never start accruing interest. This way, you’ll build your credit score and earn money (in the form of rewards or cash back), making it a win-win.


The accessories that you put in your home are what bring the character to each room of the house. In Florida, the right accessories are so important to keep the style of your luxury home up to date. If you want your Florida home to feel like a luxury home no matter what community you live in from the northern tip to the southern end of the state, heed the tips below to become an insider in luxury living. 


Declutter


One essential aspect of luxury homes is that of little to no clutter. You don;t want a lot of knick knacks hanging around, nor do you want papers, piles of clothes, or other items that need to be put away sitting around. To reduce the amount of clutter in your home, ensure that you have adequate storage so that everything has a place. The need for less clutter is where closets, drawers, shelving, and overall good organization come in handy for luxury living. 


Steer Away From Ornate Pieces


It’s important if you want a luxury home that you steer clear of anything too ornate. Any pieces that call extreme attention to themselves should be removed from the home to keep from attracting too much of the wrong kind of attention within a space. 


Base Your Accessories On Space


You need to make sure that the accessories you choose fit the space that you’re  furnishing. Anything too large or too small will look awkward if it’s not appropriate for the size of the room. You don’t want to over-accessorize or under-accessorized. Find that balance that suits the size of a room.      


Keep With A Theme


When you pick colors for the rooms of your Florida luxury home, you should always stick with a theme. Keep with the same types of colors, textures, and feeling within the space. Don’t mix a nautical blue theme with bright sunshine tones, for example. 


Use Meaningful Pieces


It’s vital to the character of your home to bring some of who you are into each room. Adding particular style means that you need pieces that mean something to you. Items that fit into this category could include photos, paintings, unique figurines, and more. Everything in a room doesn’t need to match, however, for a Florida home to be considered luxurious, everything in the home should be of the highest possible quality.       


Use Finishing Touches


The best way to know that a room is complete is adding those finishing touches. These can be plants, window treatments, throw pillows, and blankets. These are the simple accents that finish off any room of your Florida luxury home.
