Social Lending

Secured Loans Have Power – Even In the World of Social Lending

Are you tired of being rejected? Sick of hearing “no”? Well, in that case, it’s time for you to jump into the world of social lending, where you are much more likely to hear the word “YES” than anywhere else. Does that mean it’s automatic, the way some people imagine? Not at all. However, it’s much easier to navigate the world of social lending than you think.

For example, let’s say that you want to get a homeowners loan to pay debt. If your bank is telling you that they aren’t going to do this for you, then you might need to look into other sources. Regular people tend to be more understanding when you talk about some of the financial challenges that you’ve had in the past. If you have grown out of these challenges and moved on with your life in a positive way, then you’re in good shape to take over the social lending world and at least get your proposal filled out as you want it to be filled out.

The first thing that you need to do is make sure that you start looking into secured loans. You’re unlikely to find an unsecured loan at the amount that most people are looking for. That doesn’t mean that it can’t happen, but it does mean that you will have to look harder for what you want.


The truth here is that secured loans against your home are pretty serious affairs. The reality is that you are going to be pitching to people that matter, people that can make a difference in your life, people that can help you fund your dreams. Do you really want to have a blank proposal for something so serious? Not at all.

A secured loan against your property is major because if you default on it, it’s just like a mortgage — you can end up putting your home at risk. So you have to make sure even from the very beginning that you have what you need. You have to also ensure that you’re going to be able to repay the loan over time.

The good news is that depending on your credit rating you could have a lot less in interest to pay compared to if you were going through a bank. It just depends on what you really want to accomplish and what purpose you have.

Make sure that you are being completely honest in your proposal — regular people want to protect their investments too, and they definitely make sure to check your information thoroughly! Good luck!
