Need Some Quick Ideas About Researching Cheap Loans?

Apr 27, 2008
The following are a few basic ideas about getting a cheap loan:

Variable interest cheap loan rates may seem a better deal at first glance, but can be subject to a rapid increase, while fixed interest rates might start off at a higher percentage rate, but offer more security.

Be cautious when selecting your cheap loan company. Always go in for financiers with good reputations in the market and lots of good consumer reviews. The corporation you're dealing with should be in business for years and be capable of easily handling your case.

Watch out for the siren lure of a honeymoon rate. Often introductory rates are a con job, enticing you with a low-ish rate in the first six to twelve months and then, after the honeymoon, switching to a nasty high standard variable rate (SVR). Look for a full-featured basic variable rate that offers a competitive rate for the life of your cheap loan rather than just a limited time-period.

Monthly repayments, various bills, residence improvements, and unexpected expenses can all become overwhelming for any person or family. A spiraling and increasing debt can become a problem for people in this situation.

Does pulling your credit report many times damage your credit? Answer: All inquiries for your credit report within a two-week period will count as one inquiry if you are looking for a loan to refinance your home, a home-equity loan, a mortgage to purchase a home, or a loan for a car. These are all collateralised, and offer less risk to the lender. If, however, you are looking for an unsecured or personal loan or a credit card, each inquiry will be counted separately. I suggest you do not make multiple inquiries to different lenders in a short space of time; this may have an adverse affect on your credit rating.

Make sure the finance company is not looking up your credit rating while they're giving you a quote. Your credit record will show any financial product applications you have made, so it makes sense not to apply for several unsecured or personal cheap loans at the same time.

Some unethical "financiers" use the Internet to take advantage of consumers through their online applications. This can lead to identity theft or passing your details onto umpteen other companies. Before you apply online, always make sure you are using a trusted, well-known financier. Most will only ask you for some preliminary info regarding your income, debt, etc. They do this for basic screening; they want to make sure you're reasonably qualified for a loan before spending more time and lolly processing you.

Your home is at risk if you do not keep up payments on a loan or other loan secured on it. Written loan quotes should be available on request, so you can make comparisons. Loan deals are always subject to status and ability to repay.

Once you make a final decision on cheap loan, make sure that you are aware of the total costs involved, including the annual percentage rate and any other fees attached to early repayment. Remember, when a loan is taken out, a credit agreement is set up to grant the borrower a certain amount of cash, if they submit to the terms and agree to pay back a sum over a specified period of time.

Before signing anything, find out exactly what would happen in a situation where you are able to pay off your cheap loan debts earlier than expected. The terms of the brokers may be different to whatever you are expecting.
