Debt Consolidation Loan - How To Avoid Downward Spiral Of Debt
Written by: Bill Smith
Debt consolidation is an answer to many of your debt problems.
It can help you consolidate multiple debt payments into one
single payment, avoid filing for bankruptcy and simply help you
get out of debt fast. It can help you consolidate many bills
into one single monthly bill. This will give you some respite
and help you get in control of your finances.
If you are burdened with debt and you are paying out too much
for your credit card or personal loans, why not replace all of
them with a consolidated loan.
To take control of your finances, do a realistic assessment of
your income and expenses. First list your income from all your
sources. Then list all your fixed expenses each month like home
loan, auto loan, insurance. Next list the expenses that vary
each month like clothing and entertainment. Your public library
or your local book store will give you books on budgeting and
creating plans for saving money. If you are not able to save
money and find yourself in a downward spiral of never ending
debt, you may need a debt consolidation loan.
Debt consolidation loans are offered by credit counselling
agencies who have debt consolidators working in your favour. A
good debt consolidator will work with you in creating a debt
management plan and call up your creditors and discuss your
situation with them as well as reduce your interest. A debt
counsellor will also help you get a debt consolidation loan
against the security of your home. This loan can be used to pay
off your balances on your credit cards, store cards as well as
personal loans. The interest on your debt consolidation loans is
much lower than your other loans so this is a win-win situation.
While seeking a debt consolidation agency, make sure you are
seeking a non profit organization which is really interested in
