What is an unsecured loan?

An unsecured loan is a type of loan where money is taken out without being guaranteed against an asset, like a home or car.

While most loans ask for some kind of security to borrow against, an unsecured loan can bypass needing to put down an asset, which can save time for a quick approval and offer an option for renters and people without other assets like a car.

What are the pro’s and con’s of unsecured loans?

Depending on your particular situation and finance needs, unsecured loans might or might not be your best option. Some of the pros of an unsecured loan are:

  1. Fast turnaround
  2. Streamlined application process
  3. Accessible for people without assets to borrow against
  4. If there’s a default in repayments, your assets aren’t at risk

Some of the cons of unsecured loans are:

  1. If you do default, you may be taken to court rather than simply having your assets possessed
  2. Repayment rates are typically higher than a secured loan
  3. You may be limited in the amount you can take out

If you’re still unsure whether or not an unsecured loan is the right option for you, speak to the finance specialists at Hodgestone Finance. With years of experience across all loan types, we’ll be able to recommend the best type of loan for you.

What is a private unsecured loan?

There are banks that offer unsecured loans, like ANZ or Bank of Melbourne. However, you may find that the best option is a non-bank or private lender. This is simply a lender that operates privately, and is usually an option for people seeking smaller loan amounts/flexible loan terms, like with unsecured loans.

How do you find a good unsecured loan?

As mentioned above, one of the best things you can do to get the best unsecured loan is to find a loan broker that specialises in unsecured finance, like Hodgestone Finance. An initial consultation period with us - to discuss your needs and assets - will help us figure out if an unsecured loan is your best option, and if so who should loan from.

What are things I should consider while choosing an unsecured loan?

Before committing to an unsecured loan, it’s important you consider if it’s your best option. The repayment rates tend to be higher, and the penalties for defaulting can be greater - particularly if you’re taken to court and have to pay legal fees on top of amounts owing. You may have assets you don’t realise can be used as a security - it’s always worth speaking with a consultant like Hodgestone Finance before committing to any loan straight out of the gate.
