Consolidation Loan: The good, the bad and the ugly

 

Consolidation loans can be good, but only if youíre the right fit.  Letís talk about the proís and conís of a debt consolidation loan versus consolidating your debt.

 

A debt consolidation loan does not mean no debt, and it doesnít always mean less debt.  Consolidation is one of those ďbuzzĒ words that you hear everyday, and some debt consolidation companies would have you think that a debt consolidation loan will ďset you freeĒ.

 

A consolidation loan is taking out a loan to pay off your existing creditors.  The assumption is that you have a number of outstanding credit card bills and other debts with high interest rates (i.e. 18%-22%), and with a consolidation loan, you pay off all your lenders with this money, and pay a much lower interest rate on this new loan (i.e. 9%).

 

Two things need to happen for a debt consolidation loan to be successful for you.  One, you must insure that your new APR (Annual Percentage Rate) with the loan is less than the total of your outstanding debt, and secondly, you must close off all of the accounts that you just paid off with the loan.  If you can do these things, a consolidation loan could be good for you.

 

Make sure the lender does not charge a large upfront fee that they donít tell you about.  And also watch out if the lender tries to roll the fee into the loan payments in an attempt to hide it.

 

As mentioned above, you must ensure that you close out all of the accounts that you just paid off with the loan.  Otherwise, the tendency will be to start using the cards again because they have a zero balance.  Then youíll have 2 debts.  One with 22% and the other with 9%, and youíll be worse shape than before.  CLOSE THOSE ACCOUNTS.

 

Donít sign a debt consolidation loan unless you know the following:

 

1)  the principal amount you are borrowing.

2)  what the APR will be.

3)  how many payments you will make.

4)  what the closing costs are, if any.

 

If these things are not spelled out clearly on the contract, or you donít understand the contract, DONíT SIGN IT.  It will come back to haunt you later.  Also, donít keep any of the cash that you got from the loan for yourself.  Just borrow what you need to pay off your debts.

Now lets look at the negative.  What youíre doing with a loan is converting unsecured debt into secured debt.  If you donít change your spending habits you could be in a worse position than before.  Remember, now that youíve paid off your credit cards, the credit card companies will be eager to renew your cards, with an even higher spending limit.

 

Quite often, the consolidation loan is a second mortgage which is secured by your home.  If you default on your monthly payments, you may lose your home.

 

So it is important that you get into a debt management program to help you avoid future credit problems and avoid potential bankruptcy.

 

A debt consolidation program is much different than a debt consolidation loan.   In general, with this kind of program, all existing creditors remain the same, except that either through your efforts or a debt consolidation company, interest rates are renegotiated, reduced or eliminated so that your monthly payments are far less.

 

If you work closely with your creditors, and once again, totally change your spending habits, you may be able to eliminate your debt in 3-5 years.

 

Both programs have their merits, and it depends which program best fits you.
