On paper, Delaware, as a place to live, looks like an attractive proposition when it comes to incomes and lifestyles. The Mid-Atlantic state comes in at position nine on the top ten list of richest states in the country. The per capita income in 2016 was $31,128, close to the national average of $31,712. While the median household income of $61,757 came in slightly higher than the rest of the country at $57,617. Moreover, according to a study by US News, Delaware also ranks well for quality of life. The First State ranked eighteenth overall and did well for economy, opportunity, and fiscal stability.
Of course, not all Delaware residents are doing well financially. In fact, many Delawareans—even if they do make a decent living—are looking for solutions to their growing debt. If you’re ready to start clearing your debt, there are various methods, including debt consolidation, that could work for you, depending on your situation.
The factors to consider are:
- The amount of your debt
- The type of debt
- How quickly you’d like to clear the debt
- Your credit score
- The type of payments you could sustain
Credit Scores and Debt Consolidation Loans
Having a good credit score can net you better rates—thus saving you money—on many of life’s big ticket items. For example, a higher credit score will enable you to get a lower mortgage rate and a lower APR on your auto loan. The same holds true for debt consolidation loans. To allow you to get a loan with favorable terms and interest rates, you need to have a good-to-great credit score otherwise you could end up paying higher interest than the rates on your cards. However, there are other debt-clearing solutions available even if your credit is not that great, so don’t give up— it’s still possible to become debt free.

It costs more to live in Delaware than many other places in the country. The median price of homes for sale is $277,900. The good news is, that if you do own a home values went up nine percent in 2017. Renters in the First State can expect to pay, on average, $1,300 a month.
No matter whether you’re a homeowner or renter, with the high cost of living, it’s easy to find yourself with substantial debt. Thousands of Delawareans are in the same boat, so don’t feel bad. There are various ways to get back on track financially. If a debt consolidation loan isn’t the answer for you, one of the other options like debt settlement may work.
Delaware Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations on credit card debt starts when you fail to make your last payment. In Delaware, it ends three years after this date for most types of debt. This includes promissory notes such as mortgages, and written contracts like medical bills, loans, and bounced checks. If you plan to wait for your debt to expire, be aware that the clock on the Statute of Limitations can be reset if you make even one small payment toward the debt or admit to the debt in writing.
Rather than waiting years for your debt to expire and having to field stressful calls from collection agencies, consider using one of the debt-clearing options available to Delaware residents.
