At Key To Australia we understand there are times in your life that will require some extra cash for things that are either out of your control or in your control but you simply don’t have the available funds right now.
Personal loans range from buying a car, taking a holiday, renovating the bathroom or just getting on top of bad debt.
A personal loan is where you borrow a specific amount and make regular payments to your lender. By the end of the term you would have paid off the loan. Typically personal loans will be from 12 months to 7 years depending on the amount and how long you want to take to pay it off.
A personal loan is better than a credit card as the loan has lower interest rates and the rates are often negotiable with the lender (don’t worry we can negotiate on your behalf).
Personal loans will have payment schedules which include the interest and the principle payments. When we discuss setting up the loan we can work in with your budget and how much you can afford to pay each and every month for the length of the loan. If the budget doesn’t fit we can make the loan over a longer period of time, which reduces the monthly payments.
The best thing about a personal loan over a credit card is that you know when the loan will be fully paid off, credit cards are designed to make you only pay the minimum amount meaning it can take 3x the amount of time to pay off.
A secured personal loan requires you to put up an asset as security. This could be your car, boat or other expensive item.
This is designed so that if you default on your payments and don’t try and fix or remedy the payments with your lender they have the right to take possession of that security and sell it in order to recover the money.
Secured loans can be less risky and have lower interest rates because you are offering an asset or item as security so the lender feels more comfortable lending to you.
Unsecured loans don’t require you to put up any assets as security. Unsecured loans are more risky and have higher interest rates than secured loans.
If you fail to pay the loan in full the lender will take legal action against you and can potentially seize your assets or have a debt collector agency chase you for the loan amount still owing.
Always work with your lender if you are having trouble paying, never let it get out of control. If you don’t have any assets to offer as security, you maybe able to use a guarantor who offers up security that the lender can claim possession if you fail to pay your loan.
A debt consolidation loan combines a number of different loans or credit card debt into one loan.
For example, you may have two credit cards with outstanding balances plus a personal loan, each with a different lender. Debt consolidation loans enable you to consolidate all three debts into one manageable and potentially more affordable loan.
Consolidating high interest debts into lower interest loans can reduce your monthly repayments, while restructuring your finances can help to propel you towards achieving your future financial goals.
Consolidating your debts into one loan with a lower interest rate can help you save in interest, fees and charges. It is also much easier to manage, saving you time and limiting the risk that you make a late repayment or forget to make a repayment.
Why consolidate, restructure and minimise interest? It’s about recognising bad debt, then minimising bad debt in order to move you into good debt – yes, there is such a thing as good debt!
