Tips on improving your credit score

Your credit score will affect your ability to buy a house or rent an apartment, but nearly 75 percent of consumers don't know how to improve their credit scores.

Here are some suggestions on how you can make your score better:

-Do not max out your credit cards

-Pay off your debt rather than open new accounts

-Make sure you check your credit report so you can spot any problems.
