NEGATIVES OF A HARD CREDIT CHECK
When a hard credit check appears on your credit report, it will lower your score. By showing that you are looking for credit, it tells other creditors you may not have the funds or ability to take on new payments. This is not something you should do lightly. Unless you are sure your credit is good enough, you may just be damaging your score further for nothing.
Since lenders who work with Achieve Finance only perform a non-traditional credit check, there will be no marks against you on your credit report when you apply through the easy-to-use system.
CONSIDER YOUR CREDIT SCORE
Many people do not know their credit score off-hand and that may be because of the evolving nature of credit scores. Companies who report your credit are updating your score constantly with each on-time or missed payment you make.
PERSONAL LOANS VS. SECURED LOANS
Secured loans will require a type of collateral. This means when signing and agreeing to the bank, they have the option to repossess whatever property you risked by offering it up as insurance if you do not complete your payments. In order to obtain this kind of loan, you will have to offer something of a high enough value to pay off the loan if you cannot.
The biggest issue with secured loans is their policies on credit score minimums. They usually only accept medium to high scores, so if there is neglect shown in your financial history, a loan may not be readily available.
Personal loans are from private lenders and they do not require collateral. If payments go missed the account will be sent to collections.
