How to Find the Best Deal for your Borrowing
When you take out a loan, you are obligated to pay the interest on that loan amount. Some lenders will let you pay back the loans earlier, though it’s highly unlikely that you will save interest by doing this. In most cases, the extra repayments don’t go towards paying the principal amount, and you will be paying the interest as usual. Meaning that even if you settle early, they need you to pay the expected amount (principal interest) back.
As such, you should focus on finding the best interest rates you can see before taking out a loan. The interest charged on unsecured loans can vary, ranging from 6% to 9% for a small loan of a few thousand dollars, which is spread out over a period of 5 years.
Taking control of your finances
For those who are already in debt and you’d like to refinance them to consolidate them and save up some money, or receive a smaller monthly payment, you should aim to find companies that specialize in such kinds of options. Although you’re are most likely not going to receive the lowest interest rates when refinancing, since lenders usually see people who are refinancing or consolidating as being higher risk. However, if you’re disciplined, it can help you in the long run.
If you’re refinancing, you can lower your monthly payments quite significantly. If you had taken a sub-prime loan and you had repaired your credit successfully and managed your account with that lender relatively well in the interim, it’s possible to save some interest by switching to a mainstream lender. Consolidating debts will let you combine many accounts in one monthly payment. As such, you will only have just one payment date and one figure to remember, this could mean a lesser chance of missed payments and therefore a lower possibility of damage to your credit rating.
The most important thing here is to stay disciplined. Consolidating your personal loans and your credit cards where appropriate will allow you to close most of your revolving lines of credit, and you will be in a better position to avoid temptations into running them up again. The main aim of consolidating is making sure that your debts reduce over time, not to free you into borrowing more.
What about those in Difficult Financial Circumstances?
If you’re finding it difficult to borrow from the traditional banks perhaps due to unstable employment, peer to peer lending might be an excellent option for you. Peer-to-peer lending has been quite popular in the USA for a while, and it’s just starting to spread to Australia and other parts of the world. Currently, there are several groups of organizations and individuals working together to provide peer-to-peer lending services in Australia.
Typically, peer-to-peer lenders offer unsecured loans with fixed interest rates. They ideally use a risk-based system in which the borrowers are categorised into different tiers. The lowest risk borrowers usually get competitive interest rates, while the higher risk ones typically pay more interest. Nonetheless, high-risk borrowers are much more likely to get approved for a loan with the peer-to-peer lenders than they are with traditional lenders, including banks and online lenders.
The fees associated with this kind of borrowing are generally lower than what the banks charge, and some lenders offer loans with no application or exit fee. All you have to pay is the interest charges.
Online Loans for Small Amounts
If you only need to borrow small amounts such as a few hundred dollars, you can do this via online lenders. Most of them can process your application and deliver results in a matter of minutes, or even seconds. These types of lenders usually offer short-term loans, and typically charge much higher interest rates compared to the mainstream banks. But their interest rates might seem a bit terrifying at first glance, since you will be paying off the loan very quickly, meaning that they won’t charge you as much as it probably looks like from the 3 or 4 figure percent AER.
Consider What You’re Borrowing For
Some lenders need to take into account the reason you’re borrowing for when determining whether to give you a loan or not and the interest they will charge you. If you’re taking a loan for things that will hold their value over time or things that are long-term investments, such as replacing a major appliance or repairing a home, your application is likely to be looked upon favourably than if you were borrowing for a holiday or party, since you’ll be more likely to want to borrow more in the future. Lenders usually build a complex profile before deciding what they can lend you and might want to verify that you are a responsible borrower.
