What You Should Know on Personal Loan Types

By: Jim Brown

Most people will visit a finance center and discover that there are more types of insurance available to them than they realized. The types of personal loans available will be determined by a specific need and the credibility for the personal loan will be based in whole or in part by the applicant's credit history. Some Americans are offered lower rates on personal loans because they have a high credit rating and are deemed to be a safe risk for insurers because they pay all of their bills on time.

When comparison shopping for loans, a person will need to determine which type of personal loan that they need. Some are searching for the lowest rates on a home mortgage loan and expect to find replacement coverage for the home and insurance that protects them from any liabilities that occur during ownership. The real estate property might be used as investment property and higher insurance rates will apply for any real estate investment property that is financed or one that is not owner occupied.

Some people are in need of extra cash for a variety of reasons. They are seeking a personal loan in an amount that does not exceed $1,000. Most personal loans are for amounts of $500 and certain lenders will have specific requirements that must be met for the personal loan to be granted. Banking institutions will often provide personal loans to customers that do other forms of banking but will deny credit to others. When this occurs, people will generally turn to payday loans centers or title loan offices for help and use their automobiles as collateral for the loan.

The personal loans that are available for automobiles are varied. People can choose to finance the automobile through the dealership and take advantage of rebates and trade-ins to reduce the amount that is financed. Some dealerships offer to grant a personal loan for the price of the automobile but require them to finance the loan through the dealer and make all of their payments there on a weekly basis. Very few automobile buyers will qualify for the zero interest rates offered by automobile dealerships throughout the year.

Some people are consumed by credit card debt and other non-secured loans and will search for a personal loan that consolidates debt. The loan rates quoted on debt consolidation loans will vary by lender and will be influenced by the applicant's credit and payment histories. Some people resort to credit repair specialists to reduce the amount of debt they have, but will have to pay a fee for every debt that is one the list and most times, these fees are charged on a month-to-month basis until they are paid off.

The loan programs for debt consolidation that are offered through specialized payment negotiators are a good alternative to reducing debt if bankruptcy is being considered. Some homeowners will consider all options available to them if they are at risk of losing a home and all the things they have worked for during their life. Some homeowners will get a personal loan to refinance their mortgage but will only be offered an adjustable rate on the loan and fall prey later to high interest rates that make paying for the home seem impossible.
