How to Find a Quick Loan
Written by: John Mussi
If you're looking for a quick loan and don't know where you should start, you're in luck. There are several different types of lenders available today from which you might be able to get a quick loan... ranging from traditional banks to finance companies, and even online lenders.
Getting a quick loan doesn't take a lot of luck or even a lot of effort; it's all a matter of knowing where to look, and a willingness to take just a little bit of time before deciding upon a lender to make sure that you get the best deal that you can on your quick loan.
Here's a look at the different types of lenders that you should investigate, so as to help you decide where to look for your loan so that you'll be able to get it as quickly as possible.
The first place that many people look for a quick loan is their local bank... unfortunately, that's also the last place that many people look. While it's true that the bank that you do business with or at least have done business with in the past may be more likely than some others to grant you a quick loan, it's still a generally good idea to explore other options as well.
Request loan quotes from several banks in your area, making sure to ask the average loan application processing time as well.
The time that it takes for your application to be processed may vary from bank to bank, but many of them will take several days at the least to process your loan and respond to your application.
Finance and lending companies
One alternative to traditional banks for a quick loan are finance companies and loan offices. These businesses specialize in lending, and as such are often able to process loan applications faster than some traditional banks.
Unfortunately, these lenders often charge higher interest rates than most banks... but not all of them do, especially if you have good collateral to secure the loan.
Request quotes from several of these lenders to compare to your bank quotes, and keep in mind that many finance and lending companies can process loan applications in two days or less.
Yet another alternative lender that should be considered for your quick loan is the online lender. These lenders offer loan services from the safety and security of your home via the internet, and can offer competitive loan rates with appropriate collateral even to individuals who have had credit problems in the past.
In addition to having low interest rates, many of these lenders are able to process loans in a matter of hours and some can be faster than that.
Get quotes from online lenders to compare to your others, and use all of these quotes to determine which loan offer is best to meet your needs.
