What types of personal loans do they offer?

As of the time of this writing PersonalLoans.com offers three types of personal loans.

  1. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Loans-These loans are taken directly from investors often for business purposes If you wish to take out a P2P loan you will need to list a good reason why you want the loan and they may ask how you plan to spend the money. You may borrow anywhere from $4,000 to $35,000 and there may be a loan origination fee of 1%-5% which would be deducted from the balance of the loan but still need to be payed back by you. The minimum credit score for this loan is 600 and a minimum verifiable income of $2000 per month
  2. Personal Installment Loans-These loans are just like they sound. You borrow money from a local company and pay them back in installments. The loans are highly regulated by the state from which they originated or the Indian tribal system. These loans have no origination fee but possibly a higher interest rate than a P2P loan. You must have a minimum income of $2000 per month and a minimum credit score of 580 to qualify for this type of loan. Each lender will have their own specific repayment process; meaning they may require monthy, bi-monthly, or weekly payments depending upon your financial situation
  3. Bank Personal Loan-Also just want it sounds like. This is a loan originating from a bank. If you apply for this loan online you’ll be directed to a local bank branch to complete the application. Most likely they will request verification of income, a government issued photo ID, and the reason why you want the loan. This is the longest process type of loan, however, this may give you the most favorable interest rate. The minimum credit score is 580 with a minimum verifiable income of $3000 per month.

What type of loan will depend on your situation, how quickly you need the money, your credit worthiness, how much you want to borrow, and how much in interest you are willing to pay.

How does applying for PersonalLoans affect my credit?

They initially do a ‘soft’ pull to see if you need their credit requirements and if it is determined that you do they will send your application to their interested lending partners who will then do a ‘hard’ pull on your credit.

These pulls may affect your credit score by 1-2 or more points.

The impact on your credit does depend on many factors such as; how many loans you’ve applied for, your debt to income ratio, your debt to available balance or ‘debt-to-limit’ ratio, and how long ago you last applied for a loan.
