I believe I know where you're going srshb, but as you can see by the posts, it raises red flags with us here, so you can pretty sure it will raise red flags with the creditors.  Besides requesting CLIs from your current CCs, you could add some new ones, but hitting them with big balances right off the bat will flag you too.  I just really don't know a way to achieve what you are looking for.

Re: More Credit Limit

I'll keep the advice simple: you need to demonstrate to your lenders your ability to properly utilize high lines and repay them. Best way to achieve this is via high spending, then the sky high limits are extended provided your credit profile and income support it. As you get to the higher lines, expect income verification requests. Good luck.

Re: More Credit Limit

Remember nothing is a sure thing...its hard for a business to be profitable the first few months since there are too many variables, New opening cost, royalties, inventory, hiring and training, land and rent, utilitiy depositis, license fees, etc...so you should really look at his business plan and also both of you go together to try and get a small biz LOC so you will have a monthly payment and if it takes off in 6 months you can clear the note.

This is soooo a bad idea!! You both should get business loans or at minimum, business credit cards. You have no way of predicting how well that (or any) business will do.

Re: More Credit Limit

I hate to say this but you are getting married and loaning money to a friend for a biz that will, in theory, generate a lot of cash months after the loan.  Well, it scares the hell out of me. This sort of business "opportunity" is almost never what it seems.

 

These kinds of things are, unfortunately, not uncommon, and often destroy friendships and relations with relatives. Not to mention your credit.

 

It's your money (well some of it) but it's your life as well. Be very, very careful and good luck.


I have reestablished credit over the last couple years
so my moniker is, well, rather out of date.

Re: More Credit Limit

Taking what OP said on face value, I'll start with the question at hand: How do you hit $100k in CLs? OP, try your local CU. They tend to give out higher limits. Be sure to pay off your existing CCs first to improve your odds, and make sure your CRs are clean. Realistically you won't hit that goal within a year. As mentioned, give it 2-3 years at least. IMO, the idea of a charge card works best. If money is coming in to support this business and your purchases, then obviously you would have the ability to pay everything back. Combined with your existing purchasing power, you can easily surpass the $100k purchasing ability you are looking for.

 

To echo everyone else, your idea is a bad one. It'll cost you sooooo much more money to do it that way...thousands more. You'll save more money just by getting a loan or LOC. You can draw as you need it and $100k w/ proven financials will help you reach your goal. Also, don't give a dime until you have a written agreement with this relative. There are plenty of stories in here of relatives screwing their own. If the station is already up and running, there won't be a need to finance it anyway unless they are losing money now. Ditto to everyone else's red flags.
