If you are like most people, the pandemic has impacted your finances. You may even still be suffering its effects and it could impact an entire generation. That being said, there are solutions and you will find some great options if you take the advice below and tailor it to your own situation.
Is a Personal Loan Right for You?
This is a real tough question to answer, but starting back in 2015 Personal Loans got significantly popular. A lot of this has to do with the reduction of interest rates to 0 by the Federal Reserve and other central banks worldwide. Usually a loan of a significant amount is secured by collateral, but the popularity of unsecured loans up to $100,000 has taken hold of the marketplace.
Companies like Upstart, Upgrade, SoFi, and even traditional banks like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are now in on the Personal Loan game. If you prefer to use a third-party system, those exist to at places like Credible, where you can compare rates from lenders based on your credit profile. Rates can range from a low of 5% APR all the way up to 35%. So, check the interest rates on your revolving accounts and see if this may work for you.
In summary, a personal loan can be a great program for people with decent to good credit history to consolidate many revolving debts into one place. If you haven’t already, make sure you monitor your credit score and see what lenders want to help YOU get out of debt.
