Secured Homeowner Loans: Apply With a Clear Thought

By: Angelo Drew

A personal asset can rescue you in financial deficiency where all your resources fail. Lenders are in a better stance to advance you money, if you insure the loan amount with guarantee of your valued assets. However, before applying for a secured homeowner loans, it is better to figure out the importance of your requirement. Taking these type of loan is not child's play, you are pledging your property as collateral, which means lender can even sell your property if the loan amount is not returned.

Overspending can seriously affect your monetary stability. But sometimes you do face a worse condition due to your unplanned spending. Some people even have a habit of skipping their loan or card payments. However, sometimes bad financial conditions don't allow you to clear your debts. These conditions lead to an errant remark on your credit score in the financial market.

Let's see what conditions make your credit report adverse -

  • Multiple loans at a given time
  • Too many late and missed payments of your loans and cards
  • Bankruptcy, CCJs (County court judgments) against you
  • A negative DTI (Debt to income ratio)
  • Defaulter with your earlier loan or card
  • Frequent job and address change etc.

    Usually, lenders don't welcome applications with poor credit score. However, being a homeowner you are in a better condition to get secured homeowner loans. These loans provide you with low interest rate deal with a big amount. The loan amount depends on the value of equity present in your home. The other major advantage is the loan tenure stretches up to 30 years. Usually the loan gets approved as lender is secured with your assets.

    Before applying for secured homeowner loans, it's important to prioritize your requirements. You might require loan to clear your loan and card debts; it's a good idea to have a one low interest monthly payment to clear all your earlier dues. It will be a bad idea to utilise the loan amount to invest in unnecessary things when you know you are suffering from a bad credit score. Remember your home is the only rescuer where lenders have least doubt to grant a loan amount.
