Shopping for a Secured Personal Loan


If you find yourself looking for a loan, you'll likely be getting a secured personal loan. A secured personal loan can be used for a variety of reasons, from paying off student fees to buying a new car? but they all have a few things in common. Any secured personal loan that you get will require you to put down a security deposit in the form of property (which is known as collateral), which helps to assure the lender that they'll be getting their money back. Collateral is also a good incentive for paying back your loan, after all, you do not want the lender to have to sell your property because you didn't pay them what you owed.

Examples of a secured personal loan

Any loan that you take out for yourself that has some sort of property attached to it is a secured personal loan. You could be borrowing money from a bank and using gold jewelry as collateral for the loan, or you could be purchasing a new house with a mortgage through a finance company? either way, if you don't pay back what you owe then you're going to lose the property in question. Automotive financing, title loans, and pawn shops also fall into this category, though pawn shops are a bit more of an extreme example of the secured personal loan.

Advantages and disadvantages of a secured personal loan

For the most part, interest rates are lower with a secured personal loan that they are with other types of loans. The reason for this is the collateral that you offer? the lender knows that it is going to get its money back one way or another, so its able to be a bit more flexible with its interest. If the loan were unsecured (meaning that there was no collateral required), the interest rates would likely be much higher.

Another advantage of a secured personal loan is that they're much easier to get than unsecured loans. After all, the collateral serves as a guarantee that the lender will be getting their money back? that makes them more willing to offer loans to people with questionable credit. Should you default on the loan, they still won't lose the money that they lend you (though they will have to go through the trouble and expense of possessing the collateral and selling it.)

The main disadvantage of a secured personal loan is the penalty for defaulting on the loan? losing your collateral. In some cases this isn't as bad as others? after all, it's much better to lose some rare coins than it is to lose your house. With fast and consistent repayment, however, this drawback can be easily avoided. The fear of losing your collateral can even be turned into an advantage after all, you have a wonderful reason to make all of your payments on time.
