Debts to Consolidate

Aug 13, 2008
Unsecured Debt Consolidation Loans May Be Able to Help You

If you are serious about climbing out of the financial hole you are in with millions of other Americans then it may be time to consider information about unsecured debt consolidation loans.

There are good ways to get unsecured debt consolidation loans and there are bad ways to do it and the bad ways may surprise you since so many business have sprung up and succeeded solely on writing unsecured debt consolidation loans. But they may not be the best people to talk to and there are a number of other things you need to take into consideration as well.

Credit Unions and Banks

You will probably benefit from a good relationship with a bank or credit union when you are looking for an unsecured debt consolidation loan. If you have a credit card and some loans through your bank or credit union, and your payments are timely, then your chances of getting your unsecured debt consolidation loan increase a great deal.

This can be said for credit unions more than banks as credit unions do offer a much more personal approach to business than banks so if you do not belong to a credit union you may want to consider joining one and establishing a relationship with them. The reason you want an existing relationship with a financial institution is because unsecured debt consolidation loans are not backed by collateral as they are based solely on your credit and your income history. A good relationship will help things along.

Be Smart About Your Debt

When you get ready to talk about unsecured debt consolidation loans you need to gather a list of your debts that you can pay off and never have a chance to rekindle. Loans and department store cards are great examples of this. Once you have paid these off you can probably eliminate the accounts and never use them again. That is the point of unsecured debt consolidation loans, to help you completely eliminate debt. If you allow them to do their job you will benefit.

Usually unsecured debt consolidation loans are not for as much as you would like them to be for and they do leave some of your debt still out there. If you have that existing relationship with your financial institution then you may be able to negotiate for more. Just be smart in consolidating your debt and you should be fine. Trying to consolidate debt that you know you will be using again may not be the best idea but talk to the financial institution before you make that decision.
