How Better Credit Can Unlock Your California Dreams

Are you doing some California dreaming? At some point, everybody does. There is so much to do and see. From theme parks to Hollywood stars, everyone in the developed world is drawn to California for one reason or another. Once you visit, you will want to go back. Anyone who has ever been there knows how someone might have left their heart in San Francisco. That said, California is a land of contradictions. There is no such thing as perpetual paradise. Every silver lining has a dark cloud. If a smile is your umbrella, it is because the raging storm has swept away your real one.

The land of dreams can also be a land of nightmares. Those who come seeking their fortune often lose theirs. The temperate weather also allows for seasons of raging fires. California is not just one reality that can be neatly packaged into one emotion. 

Yet despite all that, it is still the land of opportunity. There is a reason it is populated by transplants from all over the country and the world. People come by the bus loads and plane loads with only pennies in their pocket. Some few strike it rich. Here are a few of those California dreams that keep them coming, and how you can make your California dreams come true:

Real Estate

The only thing better than owning a home in California is selling a home in California. That is especially true if it happens to be beach real estate in Southern California. However, that dream is not going to work out very well if you have anything less than perfect credit. If that happens to be you, don’t despair. 

There are ways to build your credit in a way that will allow you to live your dreams. You can start with something like a credit builder card. If your credit is no good, you are probably not independently wealthy. That means you are not going to be fulfilling any dreams until your damaged credit is repaired. There are many great financial products on the market designed to move the needle from no credit to excellent credit. Once you develop borrowing power, you will be able to tackle the dream home capital of the world. You can use that power to buy your dream home, rent it and collect the revenues, or flip it for a quick profit. Whatever you want to do with California real estate is within the realm of possibility. It starts with lifting your credit from good to great.

Theme Park Vacations

Even if you are visiting California on business, you will want to take the opportunity to carve out a day to spend at Disneyland or SeaWorld. There is so much to do in all parts of California that in some ways, the entire state is a theme park. Drive a little further North and you will find yourself in wine country. 

If you are into water sports, California can’t be beat. Go ahead and try to find better surfing. You can’t do it. Would you like to be a professional beachcomber? Are you up for some saltwater swimming? Sailing? Snorkeling? Deep sea fishing? If it involves water, you can do it in California. Your California dreams that involve water can come true anytime you like.

Star Gazing

You are not going to see many stars in the night sky in or around Los Angeles because of the smog and the lights. However, you will see plenty of stars that light up the big screen, the small screen, and every other screen in your life. California is a petri dish of talent from which all types of art find life and expression. That art is on display everywhere you look. You do not have to go to one of the many art museums. It is painted on faces as well as billboards. You can hear it expressed in song or see it expressed in dance and movement. In California, you will see the stars of today as well as the stars of tomorrow.

Whether you are in California to march for civil rights or to sit for the finest culinary delights on the planet, be sure to stick around for the opportunity, the theme parks, and the star gazing.
