A Quickstart Guide to Finding an Unsecured Line of Credit
Choosing the best unsecured line of credit.
Maybe you need to consolidate your debts, student loans, or medical bills. Because of these or other factors, your credit has slipped a bit.
With some research it’s possible to fine financial institutions that will save you money in the long run.
Some points to consider.
- Do the numbers. Consider how much you need, and how many months it will take to pay off your debt. The longer you take, the more it will cost you. Is it worth it?
- Do you need a short-term or long-term loan?
- Check out the ratings of the companies that sound good with the Better Business Bureau or BBB.
- Read reviews on different companies.
- Are there penalties for not paying on time?
- Do you get a break by paying by auto pay with your bank?
- – Understand that your credit score will largely determine the interest rate you will have to pay to secure a loan.
-Check out and compare interest rates required by several financial institutions.
-What interest rates are available in your credit rating range?
There are companies that will charge you as little as 3% interest to as high as 6% or more. Some companies charge fees for handling, penalties for being late, and other fees that might be hidden in the fine print. Read the fine print. Know exactly what to expect and when to expect increases.
How much time do you need to pay the loan back? Short term loans can be due in three months and long term loans can be due in decades, as in real estate. Understand that the longer the duration of the loan, the more you will pay in interest.
The good thing is that there are many options out there. With some research you will be able to find one that suits your budget and needs.
