Personal Loans - Loans for All Reasons

By: bernard john

Taking credit assistance has become so common and convenient - all over the world - that it is no longer a matter of financial crises and regular conveniences, lifestyle and indulgence too have become major factors.
Of all loan categories, the personal loan category is the most sought after and hence, the most profitable loan type in the world. It provides comprehensible monetary solutions for both long-term and short-term needs under the secured and unsecured sub-categories.
The key difference the secured and the unsecured personal loan sub-types is presence or absence of collateral, which has both advantages and disadvantages.

Secured personal loans are availed by pledging collateral. In the presence of collateral, the creditor facilitates the borrower with quick attention, high credit range, low APR, multiple rate plans and payback methods and negotiable loan terms and conditions.

Presence of collateral in a secured deal leads to drawbacks like clientele limitation (credit for homeowners and property owners only), slow approval procedure (due to property evaluation procedure) and repossession threat (in case the borrower fails to payback).

Unsecured personal loans are availed without pledging collateral. In the absence of collateral, the loan seeker has to compromise with limited credit range, comparatively high APR, fixed rate plan and payback method and non-negotiable loan terms and conditions.

Absence of collateral in an unsecured deal leads to benefits like no time-consuming property evaluation procedure leading to less paperwork and quick loan approval. It also guarantees that repeated defaults - accidental, incidental or intentional - or non-payment will not lead to repossession of a precious asset.

From the above-stated detailed study it is clear that unsecured type of is most suitable for 'small and short-term' monetary requirements, whereas, secured type is most suitable for 'big and long-term' monetary requirements. Hence, loan seekers are advised to choose wisely on the basis of their monetary requirement, credit history, payback capacity, and future plans.
