Personal-Loan.com Puts an End to the Secured vs. Unsecured Debate

To end the ongoing confusion and debate on secured vs. unsecured loans, Personal-Loan.com releases new tips.

 

 

 

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Even seasoned borrowers are unsure when deciding on the type of loan to apply. The debate about opting for unsecured versus secured loans, traditionally within the domain of academicians, is now making inroads into the discussions of common consumers. While some contest that unsecured loans are better due to the fact that no collateral is required, others claim that secured loans come with higher approval statistics and relatively lower interest rates.

To solve the debate, Personal-Loan.com released its recommendations at http://www.personal-loan.com/Secure-unsecured-loans.html

The newly-unveiled recommendations make a deliberate attempt at educating consumers and borrowers about the subtle differences and pros and cons between the two types of loans. Each has its own share of nuances, according to the release.

http://www.personal-loan.com estimates that over seventy percent (70%) of borrowers prefer to opt for unsecured loans, if they qualify during the application process, whereas nearly thirty percent of borrowers choose secured loans either due to personal preferences, financial circumstances, or credit issues.

Each type of loan has its own share of benefits and drawbacks.

The primary foundation of secured personal loans is that they require some form of collateral (asset) as pledge from the borrower. As a result of the hedge, lenders consider these loans to be relatively "less risky" and often reward consumers in way of lower interest rates, longer repayment periods, higher approval rates, and relaxed credit score requirements. Typical applications of secured loans include auto loans, home mortgage loans, and other forms of secured loans.

On the other hand, unsecured personal loans do not require any form of asset or collateral to further the approval process. As a result, approval rates tend to be lower and credit score requirements tend to be more stringent. Incidentally, unsecured loans tend to be shorter in duration when compared to secured personal loans. Unsecured personal loans are often used in applications, such as short term loans, cash advance loans, payday loans, and other loans with a duration of ten years or less.

"On average, we have seen consumers swinging either ways but consumers generally prefer the convenience of not having to pledge collateral when possible. Unfortunately, credit score standing plays an important role in such situations and those individuals who need to rebuild their credit after an extensive hit often opt for secured loans as a safe starting point," explains Lisa Stinson, who founded the site Personal-Loan.com to help disheartened borrowers qualify for short term and long term loans.

Personal-Loan.com is one of the few sites where borrowers can apply for both secured and unsecured personal loans. With an intuitive user interface and easily accessible tools, users can complete the online loan application process within just a few minutes. Furthermore, funds are directly deposited into the individual's bank account within hours. A robust network of lenders powers the core functionality of the process at the site.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
