Many people in Sweden have a misconception on what unsecured personal loans really are. In essence unsecured personal loans are actually very similar to payday loans and vice versa. The characteristics of these loan types are that it is generally granted to smaller amounts (in the thousands) and be granted to a lender’s client without having the client explain why they need the money. The loan process is specially designed to be fast and easy to complete to ensure a fast turnaround time and minimal fuss. The one distinguishing factor is that the loan does not need any collateral and is granted based on the client’s credit history and estimated ability to repay the loan in the future.
The requirements for actually qualifying for the loan in Sweden are quite low and as such are practically open to anyone, even for those with limited credit history or even those with bad credit histories. Some lenders will even forego credit checks just to make the process faster so anyone, even those with bankruptcies may even apply and get approved! There are a lot of good financial portals, like Blancolån24, where you can find several loans from several different lenders, compare them and choose the best one for you.
There are a few things to remember here, because of the unsecured nature of these types of personal loans and also the speed in which they are processed, the lenders will naturally charge a slightly higher rate compared to secured personal loans. Once again, this extra price is justified because of the additional risk that lenders face when providing unsecured products like this compared to products secured by the client’s assets.
The trick to benefiting most from unsecured personal loans is to know exactly when to use them and when not too. These loans should be taken out when you are slightly short of money but will expect to pay back the loan’s full amount in the very short term. This is because the easy requirements stated will mean you can get the loan very easily to cover any unforeseen expenses, but the loan should be paid off as soon as possible because of the high interest rates levied.
