All About Loans

Typically when one makes a decision to purchase a property, financial officers would tell them that it will not be a problem to secure a bank loan.  True in most cases, but, I recently knew a person who could not obtain a loan because he had put his name as a guarantor for someone else’s bank loan.  And it turned out that the person he was a guarantor for could not repay his loan, so the guarantor himself was blacklisted.  So even though this guarantor is a district manager of a well-established firm, he could not secure a loan.   So although it may seem as though any Tom, Dick and Harry can easily get loans approved, financial institutions do have a master list they refer to before they approve loan applications.

Thankfully though, there is now such a thing known as bad credit loans, simply put: loans offered to people with not-so-nice credit histories.  Of course, the interest rates may not be as appealing as that of a loan offered to someone with a credible loan history, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?  Out of the 2 kinds of bad credit loanssecured loans surprisingly offer more uncertainty than an unsecured loan.  An unsecured loan is also known as a personal loan and enables one to borrow money without the risk of one’s personal assets being up for repossession should something go wrong.

On the other hand, if you’re already in a mountain of debt and you want to reduce your debts into one easy payment, you might want to consider taking a loan that can enable you to consolidate your debts.  This is a great mechanism to help you get the reins together and to take control of the situation.  At the end of the day, it is a matter of getting the peace of mind by not having to worry about paying countless debts, but rather paying just a lump sum every month.

    I remember the hassle I went thru to get my car loan approved… guarantor, no guarantor… it seemed like the bank couldn’t make up their minds! I’m currently deliberating whether or not to take up a debt consolidation loan (if the banks will let me!) and pay off the cards and the car once and for all… Hmm… food for thought.
