What is the best option to opt for - Consolidation or Settlement?

Debt consolidation may end up being the most useful for credit card debt as most credit cards come with high interest rates. However, since debt consolidation happens through a new line of credit, it will fail if your credit score is too low to be approved for the new loan. So, there comes the debt settlement option when you can't get a new loan or line of credit or practically behind on your payments.

Your credit score may get a boost when you opt for consolidation but your score may drop by a few points if you opt for settlement. However, it primarily depends on your financial condition whether or not you're able to repay the balance in full (in case of consolidation) or a part of it (in case of settlement).

Debt consolidation and settlement are both effective debt relief options. Consolidation is more suitable when you're struggling with multiple debts, but you are financially able to pay off your debts.

On the other hand, debt settlement is recommended when you are unable to repay the full balance that you owe.

Depends on your situation. Settlement is good when you wish to save on the principal amount. Consolidation is good when you want to save on interest.

If you want to buy a car now and definitely have a low score that is below the 500 or 600 range, then you’ll require a dealer who can handle that kind of loan. You can also secure your loan through a bank that has a relationship with the dealer.

Debt relief and debt consolidation are two great tools you can use when needed. Debt Relief helps you with the debts you have and can even lower your payments by negotiating what you owe on each account. Debt consolidating on the other hand is like lumping your dent into one payment. Refinancing your debts put them all together and make just 1 payment. You should investigate first so you can get a great rate and a lower monthly payment.
