Sooner or later, we all run into financial difficulties. An unexpected bill for home or car repairs. Too many credit card balances. A family emergency.
There’s no embarrassment in it. It happens to everyone.
Sadly, though, most of us don’t have huge bank balances, or rich relatives who can help us out. That means we’re left with the next best alternative: a loan.
That can be a daunting experience. It’s not just that you’re probably anxious or worried when you’re about to take out a loan. The whole process is difficult to navigate.
When researching loans you’ll find there are a ton of lenders to choose from, most with confusing terms and conditions. There are many different types of loans, too, and they’re not all the same.
Sambla is ready to help you sort through the confusion and get the loan that makes the most sense for you. But before we take a deeper look at the services that Sambla can provide, let’s demystify the whole subject of loans.
The basics of a loan are almost always the same. A person or business lends you money for a certain amount of time. You then pay the money back, along with an agreed amount of interest.
That’s where things can get complicated, because there are many different “types” of loans.
Secured loans: You’re probably most familiar with home and car loans; the lender has “security” in the event that you don’t pay the money back, because they can repossess your home or car. Home equity and auto title loans also fall into this category, as do pawn shop loans, since the item you’ve pawned serves as the collateral, or security.
Credit card loans: No security is required for a credit card loan, but you’ll usually be charged huge interest rates. Even worse, there’s no agreed-upon repayment period, so it’s much too easy to carry these loans – and make enormous interest payments – virtually forever.
Payday loans: These short-term, unsecured loans are small ones at sky-high interest rates. You’ll normally have to give the lender a post-dated check or debit authorization, so they can collect their repayment as you get your next paycheck.
Personal loans: No collateral is required for an unsecured personal loan; the lender uses your credit scores, credit report and employment/housing history in order to decide whether you qualify for the loan and how much interest you’ll pay. Interest rates are lower than for credit card and payday loans, and there’s a set repayment period. Personal loans are usually the best choice if you have to make a big purchase, or consolidate other debts like credit cards debt.
For most people, the smartest way to borrow money is with a non-secured personal loan.
But how do you get one?
A large number of banks, financial institutions and other lenders offer personal loans. Many of them let you apply online without even leaving your home. But applying to the first lender you find online can be a big mistake.
The terms, interest rates and other conditions attached to personal loans can vary widely, depending on who’s issuing the loan and how they view your application. If you jump at the first loan offer you receive, you could be accepting a deal that’s a lot worse than another lender would give you.
Visiting a number of banks, or a number of online loan websites, is one way to compare lenders and loan offers.
The much easier option is to use a service like Sambla.
In a nutshell: once you tell us what you need and a little about your personal details, we do all the work for you and find the best personal loan options for you. If you have outstanding loans, those can be rolled right into your new one, too.
You fill out just one loan application, and our Sambla team goes into action. We’ll contact more than 40 banks and lenders with your information, and then collect all of the personal loan offers that have been crafted specifically for your situation.
Within 24 hours, all of your offers will be available for viewing on the Sambla website. You can compare loan amounts, monthly payments, interest rates, repayment options and other conditions – and then make an informed and smart decision on the best loan for your needs.
The process is fast, simple and has worked for thousands of applicants who have needed personal loans.
We’ll usually get you your money in 2-3 days. And once you have it, there are no restrictions on how you can use it. Paying emergency debts, paying off credit cards, buying badly-needed appliances – even taking that vacation you deserve. The money is yours.
And since it’s an unsecured personal loan, you can never lose your car or property if you run into new financial problems.
Quite simply, Sambla finds you a deal you simply can’t beat.
