Getting a loan in a tough economy
In recent months, numerous financial institutions have received billions of dollars in federal funds to help reignite the lending industry.
There are current debates as to whether or not the banks that received aid are indeed lending money out to consumers. While you may never get the complete answer to that question, you can focus on your current situation and take steps to increase your chances of being approved for that next loan or line of credit.
What you can do:
- Research the lender. Find out how your lending institution of choice has been faring in the current economy. Some financial institutions may be more willing to lend money in the current conditions than others.
- Research your credit report. Get a good understanding of how you may look in a lender’s eyes. This can help you to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
- Reevaluate your situation. Do you really need to apply for that loan right now? Will there be a better time to do so? Seek professional advice for a second opinion.
