Types of Loans

No one likes the old saying, “You can’t always get what you want.” That’s why the concept of “loans” was invented. You CAN get what you want…. you just might have to spend a little time (and interest) paying for it. However, with the right knowledge and budgeting skills, taking out and repaying loans is a simple process. Simply set out a payback schedule and stick to it!

Lenders out there know what’s important to the public. That’s why there are types of loans to satisfy just about every desire. For example:

  • Student Loans.
    Lots of great jobs out there prefer to hire candidates with some kind of education or training, but education and training are costly things. The federal government, colleges and private companies all provide education loans to students in financial need.
  • Personal Loans.
    Organizations across the country offer personal loans. Apply them to whatever you wish: a purchase, a holiday, your education… the possibilities are endless, as long as you pay it back!
  • Home Loans.
    There’s no place like home… when it comes to expenses, that is! Owning a home is a pricey venture, especially when the time comes for repairs and renovations. Organizations nationwide can provide you with loans to help you meet all your home ownership and home improvement needs.
  • Payday Loans.
    Need cash NOW? Some lenders provide short-term loans to hold you over till your next paycheck. Careful, though: pay these loans off right away, as they come with high interest!
  • Home Equity Loans.
    Having trouble getting a loan because of your low income? You could consider a home equity loan. Be on your toes with this one, though: if you don’t make your payments on time, you risk losing equity you’ve invested in your home.
  • Small Business Loans.
    Have a great idea to get your small business up and running, but lack the funds to put your plan in action? Small business loans (available from banks, and the government) can help cover the costs of start-up, expansion, inventory, working capital, and purchase of equipment and real estate necessary to make your business a success.
  • Auto Loans.
    Want a new car, but can’t afford to pay all of it now? There are many auto loan options available to you. Do your homework first, though, and make sure you’re getting a good deal; you don’t want to fall victim to the stereotype of the sleazy car salesman!
  • Government Loans.
    The government is out to help its people, and one of the ways it does this is by providing loans in certain situations. Examples of government loans include student loans, small business loans, and different types of disaster relief loans.
