What is the average interest rate for a secured loan?
The average interest rate for a secured loan varies depending on the lender, the borrower’s creditworthiness, and the type of collateral used. Secured loans often offer competitive interest rates because the collateral (i.e. vehicle) mitigates the lender’s risk. Always compare offers and Ts & Cs from different lenders to secure the best interest rate for your specific financial situation.
Does a secured loan hurt your credit?
Secured loans can impact your credit in both positive and negative ways. Initially, when you take out a secured loan, it might have a minor impact on your credit score. However, if you manage the loan responsibly by making payments on time, it can help to improve your credit over time. On the other hand, failing to meet your loan obligations can have a significant negative impact on your credit score.
Do you need a credit score for a secured loan?
Not necessarily. As a private lender, Swoosh is able to provide loans against cars to those with a bad credit score or no credit history by assessing their current financial situation and ability to repay the loan.
Can you pay a secured loan off early?
Yes, Swoosh lets you pay off your loan in full at any time! You won’t be charged an early repayment fee or any other additional fee for paying your secured loan off early.
