Homeowner loans - why your own home may help fund your projects
Comparatively few of us may have very large reserves of liquid cash. In the event we need to finance a project (e.g. building a conservatory, starting a small business venture etc.) we may need financial help to get things going - and that is where homeowner loans may come in handy.
Lending money and security
Loan providers need to quantify and manage the risks inherent in providing money to people.
You may find that, as a general principle, the higher the risk a loan provider perceives an individual loan to be then the higher the interest rate they will need to charge to cover that risk.
By contrast, anything that an applicant does to reduce or share the risk of the borrowing may result in a more attractive interest rate.
Securing a loan
If you have an asset, most typically property, you may be able to use it as security for the amount you are requesting.
What this means is that if you are unwilling or unable to repay the monies, the loan provider will generally be able to take legal action to force the sale of the asset so that they can recover their loan plus costs.
In the case of some secured loans, particularly those for larger sums of money, the asset typically used is the potential borrower’s house.
Such loans are sometimes referred to as homeowner loans.
Homeowner loans - the potential advantages
If you own property in which you have equity (essentially meaning that the value of your property in the marketplace is more than any outstanding mortgage debt you have on it - the difference between the two is called the equity) then you may be able to use it to secure such borrowing.
This may mean:
- typically your application will be perceived as being of lower risk than one without security, so the interest rate may be more attractive than with an unsecured loan (where the borrowing is not secured against an asset);
- you may be eligible for larger amounts;
- potential loan providers may see you, as a property owner, to be of a certain financial status and someone that is confident in your ability to manage the loan successfully to conclusion.
Of course, this is only one element of several that a homeowner loan provider may use to evaluate how much money it may be sensible for you to borrow.
