Secured Loan Rates Vary So Compare Several

Mar 22, 2008
Once you start to give loans some consideration you will find that they are more complicated than you first thought. There are different types of loans, the interest rates vary and so do the terms and conditions. Secured loan rates can vary by quite a lot actually, depending on where you choose to get your quote. If you want the cheapest then you have to compare several.

The easiest way to compare secured loan rates is to go online with a specialist secured loans broker. By doing so they will get quotes with the whole of the marketplace, which ensures you get the best possible rates and deal. Specialists have access to lenders that the public does not and as they have experience, they know which lenders offer the best deals for your circumstances.

Secured loans will also depend on your personal circumstances. If you have an excellent credit rating then you will be offered the cheapest. However if your credit rating is low then you can still get the best deal for your circumstances. They can also depend to an extent on how long you take the borrowing over and how much you wish to borrow.

The secured loan will allow you to take out a borrowing for just about any reason. However, as the loan is secured on your home so you need to make sure that the reason for the borrowing is worth the risk. You have to be certain that you can afford the loan otherwise the lender can take steps to repossess. The secured loan will allow you to borrow more than a personal loan would. However this is dependent on the spare equity in your home.

The spare equity is decided by the lender based on what is left after the outstanding on the mortgage balance is deducted from the value of your home. However, at the time of writing some lenders can offer up to 100% of this providing you have an excellent credit rating, though this could change following on from the 'credit crunch' in early 2008.

Once the specialist website has gathered the cheapest secured loan rates, you have to compare them. Along with comparing the cost of the loan, you should also compare the terms and conditions that should be given alongside the loan. These are important because it is where the small print resides. The terms and conditions will give the key facts of the borrowing including how much the APR of the loan is. You have to be careful when comparing APR quotes but these should all be based on the same when coming alongside quotes from the specialist.

The terms and conditions will also tell the individual if there are any hidden fees. One fee that can often be added is an early repayment fee. This means that if you were to take out the borrowing over say a period of 5 years and repay it within 2 you could have to pay a one- ff fee. There can be others so reading the wording very carefully is essential. Besides finding you the cheapest secured loan rates and best deals, the beauty of going with a specialist is that finding and comparing loans is easy and quick.
