How to find a cheap loan work?
In order to help you find the cheapest loan work, we advise you to compare different loan offers via online comparators. You can also apply to your bank, or to a bank where you are not a customer.
To compare offers via a simulator, you will need to fill out a form with some information about your project:
- the amount of the work loan desired as well as the type of work to be performed,
- the duration of the loan
- your profile: your family situation will be requested, as well as your date of birth, the date of birth of the co-borrower if you borrow at 2, the number of children you have in your charge, the name of your bank as well as the year of opening your bank account, and the type of credit card you have. Your professional situation will also be asked, namely, your profession as well as your sector of activity, the type of your employment contract (permanent, temporary, temporary …), but also your income as well as the amount of your rent or your mortgage, if you are a tenant or owner.
Once all this information is entered, the simulator will be able to offer you several cheap loan offers, the most advantageous rates, at the highest interest rates. Of course, the credit rate is not the only criterion to be taken into account, it is also necessary to compare the various expenses of each bank or credit institution.
According to a barometer of January 2017, the average rate for small jobs, between 3,000 euros and 9,999 euros varies between 4 and 10% for a period of between 12 and 72 months, and the average rate for heavy work, between 10 and 000 and 30 000 euros, varies between 2 and 5% for a loan period of between 36 and 96 months.
Regarding the rate, it is important to distinguish the posted rate, which can be called the TNC (the Conventional Nominal Interest Rate), which can be tempting, and the APR, the Global Annual Effective Rate, which gives it a accurate indication of total credit, including insurance. Indeed, the lower the interest rate, the less money your work credit will cost you.
To be certain to choose the best loan offer works, and therefore the cheapest loan work, the best indicator to take into account is therefore the total cost of credit. For two identical amounts and two identical loan durations, choose the organization that will offer you the lowest total cost of credit.
There are also criteria that can be important regarding the choice of bank or credit institution. Indeed, some financial institutions may offer you some flexibility regarding your monthly payments, such as the possibility of postponing a monthly payment in the event of a hard blow, or reviewing its monthly payments downward or upward. It is important to note that the longer your monthly payments, the longer your credit will take, and the higher the total cost of credit.
When you have chosen the most advantageous job loan offer, simply make a request, which you can mostly make online, or in the bank selected. The bank or credit institution will ask you for documents such as a photocopy of your ID, your latest pay slips, proof of address, your latest tax notice, and your latest bank statements.
Once your application for cheap loan work is sent to the credit agency, it will be able to determine based on your financial situation whether it grants you the loan or not. Banks and credit organizations will ask you to justify a stable job and sufficient income. They may refuse you for example the amount requested, or the desired duration, but offer you another offer of personal credit, with a lower amount, and a longer credit period.
The loan works remains a credit, so you agree to repay it. It is therefore necessary to check your repayment capabilities before you commit.
