Money lenders and quick cash loans - the all-you-need-to-know guide.

Which Money Lenders Are Right For You?

Making the decision to borrow money is a big one! It’s often one that shouldn’t be taken lightly since it can be a significant financial commitment. The first part of the decision-making process, and perhaps the biggest decision to be made, is choosing who to borrow from. There are many money lenders out there, so choosing which one to go with can be a difficult decision to make. If you need to borrow a short-term money loan, we’re here to help you decide who to borrow from so you can choose a lender with confidence.

What are money lenders?

‘Money lenders’ is a term that refers to groups or individuals who lend money to a borrower like you. They often come in the form of a financial institution such as a bank or other specialist lender. The money is then repaid by the borrower at an agreed upon interest rate for a predetermined period. With Jacaranda Finance, you can borrow up to $10,000 and repay it over 12 to 24 months.

how it works question

Where can you find money lenders in Australia?

Traditionally the only place you used to be able to find a money lender was at a bank. That meant you had to physically turn up to the bank and file an application to borrow money. These days, you can find money lenders online and get quick easy loans online.

For instance, Jacaranda Finance is a money lender that is completely online. Although, we still have an office and a team of loan experts who you can contact in case you need any help with your cash loan application. However, the whole loan application process happens entirely online.

What to look for when choosing money lenders

There are so many different types of lenders out there. Therefore, it can be hard to decide which one to go with. Money lenders offer different services which may or may not be suitable for your situation. Therefore it’s a good idea to take a look at what your lender offers to help you decide who you want to borrow from. Here is a checklist of things you might want to consider when choosing a lender:

Flexibility in repayments

One key thing to look for when you are choosing which lender to go with is how flexible the lender is with your loan repayment terms. Can you make extra repayments? Can you pay your loan off early if you want to? These are important questions to ask yourself when choosing money lenders because the flexibility might have a strong impact on the overall experience you have with repaying the loan.

Application process

How straightforward is the application process? If the application process is long and tedious, you may not have the extra time to waste. Banks often have a longer application and approval process. Perhaps a better option for you would be to choose a private money lender. Our online short-term loan application and approval process are much quicker and far less tedious.

Interest rates

Another important thing to look at when choosing money lenders is what interest rates they offer? Are you happy to pay the rates they are offering or would you prefer to go with another lender whose rates are lower? Sometimes those with higher rates offer more flexibility and convenience than those with lower rates. It all depends on what is most important to you.

Other fees and charges

In addition to the interest rates offered, another important factor to look at are the other fees and charges associated with the loan. These might include the monthly, or annual fees associated with the loan. They could also include break fees or penalty fees for missed payments. The cost of these extra fees may impact your decision about which lender to choose.

Customer service

Another part of your decision-making process when deciding which lender to borrow from might be how good their customer service is. A good way to check this would be to look at the reviews that other customers have left about the lender’s service in the past.

What are some things to watch out for when choosing a lender?

While there are many reliable and trustworthy lenders out there, you may, unfortunately, come across some untrustworthy lenders who do not have your best interest at heart. Here is a list of things to be aware of (and perhaps signs to steer clear) when deciding who to borrow from.

If you are offered an amount that is more than you need

Lenders who don’t have your best interest at heart won’t take the necessary precautions of doing a thorough check of your financial situation to ensure you can afford the loan. If they offer you more than you know you can afford, this a lender to steer clear from.

They aren’t upfront about their fees and charges

If the lender is vague in any way about their fees or loan terms, this is a warning signal. It may mean they are hiding something, which could result in you being sprung with surprising costs throughout the duration of your loan contract.

They email you from an illegitimate email address

If you are contacted from an address that is illegitimate, this is a sign of a dodgy lender or potential scam. If they email you from a generic email address such as Gmail or Hotmail, rather than a legitimate business email, this is a warning sign to steer clear from this lender. You’ll want to also check that they have an ABN and Australian Credit License number.

You are asked to pay upfront fees before you receive the loan

This is another warning sign! Any lenders asking for payment before you receive your loan is a sign of a lender who is potentially trying to steal money from you.

Check they are registered on the ASIC professional register

If you are concerned about the legitimacy of a lender, you can always look them up on ASIC’s professional register.
