Various Shades of Personal Loans

By: Bernard John

These days when credit is available at such a short notice, consumers get lured towards quick financing schemes. Credit cards and store cards are very common despite the high interest rates involved. Actually, these plastic cards are very convenient and easy to use. Consumers find them easy to handle and that is why they even pay high interest rates.

In a recent research, it was highlighted that thousands of consumers around the UK were opting for 'convenience' over 'value' when it came to borrowing money. But, if you are a smart consumer who cares for value, you will find that personal loans do not lag behind too much in convenience aspect so as to justify such high costs on credit cards. Very often people go overboard with their credit cards and store cards spending. If you have too many outstanding bills on your plastic cards, you should consider consolidating your debts.

Personal loans find a common application in consolidation of debts. You may be paying hefty interest rates on your plastic card bills. If you repay your pending bills by using a personal loan, you can save some money in the process. So, it is an advantageous proposition to take out a personal loan and use it to repay your existing debts.

Personal loans can also be used to your benefit if you decide to carry out some home improvements. Brits are too much obsessed with their DIY attitude. But, if home improvements are carried out after proper planning, you will surely stand to gain more. A recent research from GE Money Home Lending reveals that carrying out a loft conversion or a room extension could increase the value of your home by almost ?42,000. But, if you decide to invest in a new kitchen and bathroom, it would add only ?13,400 on an average. So, a better utilisation of the loan amount may help you add more value to your home.
