  2. Pay off credit. – If you have any outstanding debts, do everything you can to pay them off in order to improve your debt-to-income ratio.
  3. Take out a loan. – It may seem counterintuitive, but if you take out a loan and then make your payments on time every month, you’ll actually be rebuilding your credit score by showing credit agencies that you have changed your lending behavior.
