Financing for First Time Car Buyers

Hundreds of Denver area drivers have purchased their first vehicle at Mark’s Auto Sales.

What type of first time buyer are you?

As a first time car buyer, you may have established some credit lines in your credit history.  Many young adults have a couple of hiccups in their credit history (such as late payments or carrying a balance) as they manage credit card payments, and a range of expenses for their first time, while trying to establish themselves into a career.  People looking for financing for first time car buyers are often frustrated that these credit lines lead to a poor or fair credit rating, when they need a vehicle and financing.

Other first time buyers have not established credit.  These buyers may have opted to use cash or a debit card rather than open credit, as a way of managing their spending.  While they may be careful with budgeting and planning, their credit bureau reports don’t reflect this as there are no credit lines where their financial credibility is being reported.

Other first time buyers have established some good credit lines, making on time payments and not over extending their credit. While their credit score may be rated good or excellent, underwriters are still considering that they have a short credit history or only have a couple of credit lines which can exclude them from financing for first time car buyers approval.

When in the market for a used car, nearly 53% of used car buyers need financing.  A vehicle is one of the largest purchases one will make outside of buying a home. Fortunately, as a first time buyer, whether you have less than perfect credit, or no credit at all, there are financing programs for first time buyers available.  Typically these first time buyer financing programs have higher interest rates, considering the lending risk of the less established credit of the car buyer.  The requirements for first time buyer programs vary with the credit markets.
