Secured Personal Loan What You’re After? Jacaranda Finance Can Help!

If you’ve done a bit of searching online about finance options, you might have heard about a secured personal loan. But what, exactly, does it entail?

For many people, borrowing money happens at some stage in life. There are as many types of loans as there are reasons for taking them out, giving us all a variety of options to choose from. A secured personal loan is just one type.

What is a secured loan?

A secured loan is a loan that requires an asset to be tied to the loan as security for the lender. This is to protect the lender in the event that you are unable to repay the loan. In other words, if you default on your loan or can’t pay it back, the asset can be seized and sold to make up for the lost money. That’s the worst case scenario. In our experience, our clients take out a secured personal loan because they’re looking to borrow a larger amount. This could be in the form of a medium loan, from $2,000 to $4,600, or a large loan of $5,000 to $10,000. If you’re looking to consolidate your debt against security, this could help you out. This way you have a single loan with one manageable repayment.

If you’re applying for a secured personal loan with Jacaranda Finance, you will have to provide a vehicle as security. This could be a caravan, motorbike, car or boat.

Can you get secured loans if you have bad credit?

We use the latest technology that allows us to look at a read-only copy of your most recent financial transactions to see if you can safely manage financial obligations.

What’s the difference between secured and unsecured personal loans?

While secured and unsecured loans are both types of personal loans, there are a few factors that differentiate them from one another.

With secured loans you can usually borrow larger amounts since the lender is protected with a security.

Unsecured loans typically charge higher fees since they are riskier for the lenders.

If you default on your payments on the secured loan, the lender is legally liable to repossess your asset presented as security.

If you default on an unsecured loan the lender could pass you onto a debt collector.
