Secured Loans Popularity Soars

By: James Quinton

The attractiveness of taking out a secured loan has never been so high, with house prices, especially those in London going, metaphorically, through the roof.

Despite four interest rake hikes, which have slowed down the housing market, house price inflation continues. For those fortunate enough to be in a comfortable home owning position, a secured loan is a convenient way to borrow, and it is possible, that the rising value of the homeowner's property could pay off the loan.

Secured loans are taken out against the value of the property; this is typically known as releasing equity. Secured loans will be offered with a low rate of interest as the risk to the lender is negligible, as opposed to an unsecured loan where the risk to the lender is greater because there is no collateral involved. In fact unsecured leading, and personal borrowing such as credit cards, is falling with consumers rebuking the 'borrowing from Peter to pay Paul' mantra, with many working harder to repay high interest rate loans in favour of lower interest secured loans.

Those taking out secured loans characteristically assume a responsible approach to expenditure and saving. Budgeting is innermost to maintaining a spirited bank balance and those attracted to secured personal loans tend to have a better consideration about how to remain fiscally astute.

Increasingly secured loan consumers budget according to a calculation of how much of their expenditure can be spent on an every day basis.

A secured loan can be used for a myriad of things, generally they are used to finance holidays or to buy a new car or are to make improvements to property; maybe an extension, new windows, or a conservatory.

In the past the process could have involved stacks of wearisome paperwork but now, and with many too busy to find the time to fill in a plethora of forms, you can more often than not apply for a secured loan online, which provides a hassle-free approach to getting access to the equity in your home.
