LOS ANGELES – April 4, 2022 – (
iQuanti: A personal loan can be great for paying medical bills, car repairs, or catching up on some household bills when you’re stuck. If you’re low on funds and want to know how to get a personal loan, here are three tips to help you through the process.
Compare multiple lenders
When looking for the right lender, keep in mind that you don’t have to settle for the first one you come across. Take the time to get quotes from at least three lenders to weigh your options. You can also find lenders who will allow you to compare their loan offers without applying for credit by being prequalified. You’ll want to find a lender with great rates and loan terms that fit your budget and situation.
Here are some things to consider when comparing lenders:
- Estimated monthly payment
- Interest rate
- Annual percentage rate
- Late fee
- Penalty for prepayment
Another thing to consider when comparing lenders are customer reviews. Read reviews online and ask friends and family about their experiences. This can give you a better idea of what your personal loan experience may be like.
Consider different loan options
You can choose from many personal options, including:
A cash advance is a short-term loan that can usually earn you a few hundred dollars. The amount you are approved for is based on your income, and you can repay this loan with your next paycheck.
An installment loan allows you to borrow a sum of money all at once and repay it in a set number of monthly installments or installments. Depending on the terms you agree to, you can repay this loan in months or years.
A title loan is a short-term, secured loan that can give you a lump sum of money in exchange for the title to your car. Your loan amount may be determined by the value of your car, your income and other factors. You will get your title back once you pay off your loan and can continue to drive your car while you pay off your loan.
Lines of credit
A line of credit is a flexible loan that provides funds you can draw on whenever you need to cover expenses, up to the credit limit you set. You can pay off your line of credit over time or all at once, and you’ll only pay interest on the amount you borrow.
Set up a repayment plan
Establish a solid repayment plan before getting a personal loan. Build loan repayment into your monthly expenses to ensure you can afford to make your payments. You can create a spreadsheet or download a budgeting app as a visual aid to help you keep your finances in order.
Setting up automatic payments will also help you avoid missing a payment and incurring additional fees. Some lenders offer a discount to borrowers who use their autopay feature.
The bottom line
A personal loan can be a good option in times of need. Compare lenders, consider different loan options, and always have a realistic repayment plan to get the most out of your loan. As always, do your research before applying and read the fine print, so there are no surprises along the way.
