About No Money Down Loans

Let us first examine the down payment. A down payment is the amount of money towards the purchase price that you pay out of your own pocket. Typically people put between 5% and 10% down on a home when they sign a contract. This is not a legal requirement, but rather an established tradition. If you find a buyer who does not require a down payment on contract and you are approved for a loan with 100% financing, then you need not pay anything out of pocket.

But, just how do you do this? The first thing you need to do is meet with a mortgage professional and get that aspect of the process completed. You will want to have a pre-approval or even a mortgage commitment with contingencies based on home value and selling price. Armed with this, you will be in a better negotiating position to get a seller to agree to sell their home with no money down. Your lender also may be able to refer you to real estate agents that can help you find a home that you can purchase with no money down. Again, there are no legal obligations to put money down, it is rather just custom and tradition. With the right mortgage lender and real estate agent you will be able to purchase a home without any money out of pocket.

Aside from the down payment you have likely been told that you will not be able to purchase a home without money for closing costs. Closing costs can be anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars depending on the value of the home, the size of the mortgage and other variables. You do not necessarily have to pay closing costs out of your pocket.

There are loan packages available for people that are not able to pay closing costs out of their own pocket. What these packages basically do is inflate the purchase price of the house by the amount of the closing costs and then have the seller pay the closing costs for the buyer with those extra funds. So, for example, if the purchase price of the house is $100,000 and closing costs were calculated to be $4,500 the contract would read that the sale price is $104,500 and would include language that the seller is to pay $4,500 worth of closing costs for the buyer. The seller still gets the $100,000 for the home and the additional amount that was financed goes towards the purchasers closing costs.

Different states have different rules on how the language must read and what closing costs can and cannot be paid by the seller. You will want to make sure you have a full understanding of this process and how this will work under you specific circumstances.

Believe it or not, there are loan packages available that combine both of these examples – no money down and no money for closing costs. The property will need to appraise at a specified amount in order to qualify but the key is understanding that this very much can be done. It can turn a renter into a homeowner with nothing out of pocket and perhaps even a reduced monthly payment. Mortgage payments can be at or below rent payments depending on the home you pick.

Applying Online for a Loan

How do you go about using this valuable resource? The place to start is determining what kind of loan you require and how much you can afford to borrow. Basically, you have to choose between a unsecured loan, normally used for purchases such as a car or a holiday, and a secured loan which is generally taken out either to consolidate your debts or to make a home improvement. Car loans are available for all types of circumstance and can be obtained online from websites like creditmonster.co.uk which specialises in loans for cars and also provides a resource for people that may have been affected by adverse credit in the past.

Currently, UK interest rates are generous for both types of loan. In addition, Internet only financial institutions often give better rates or features than High Street banks because they cut costs by cutting out the middle man.

Once you have decided what kind of loan you need, you should use the Internet to carry out research. Although you can use search engines to find different loans, it’s easier to find a site which has done your legwork for you and presents a spread of different UK companies and loan rates in an easily digestible format.

You can also use online loan calculators to help you find out exactly how much your monthly repayments will be, with and without payment protection.

When you have chosen the loan product you want, you can also apply online. Because of various scare stories about computer security, a lot of people are wary about giving their details online. However with some preparation and a bit of knowledge you can ensure that your online transactions are just as safe as your offline ones. (See our tips on online security).

First, make sure you have all your personal details to hand – name, address, phone number (including your mobile phone) and your email address. You should also have your financial details worked out – how much you want to borrow, over what period and what your current salary (individual or joint) is and, if you are taking out a secure loan, what the current estimated value of your house and the current amount outstanding on your mortgage is. You will also need details of other loans and credit cards with outstanding amounts and the level of monthly repayments.

It is also important to choose a unique password for your account as many companies give you computer access to your loan account using your email address and password as security. They may also use other details such as your mother’s maiden name, a memorable date or address. Your password should be made up of small and capital letters and numbers and be at least 8 characters long. Don’t use the same password for other accounts. Write it down and store it safely.

Fast Loans for Unemployed

Fast loans for unemployed are like the payday loans lent to the employed people. In fact, fast loans for unemployed takes much from payday loans. The structure as well as the process of fast loans for unemployed is similar to the payday loans. The only difference however is in deciding candidature. Payday loans would have never lent to an unemployed person, but fast loans for unemployed do.

The speed of approval is one of the most important features to look for in a fast loan for unemployed. As mentioned before, fast loan for unemployed is to be utilised towards fulfilment of very basic needs. Unless the money on loan is received fast, the needs will have to remain unfulfilled. This implies that if the loan is to be used for buying ration, borrower will have to do without his daily food if loan approval is delayed.

What distinguishes fast loans for unemployed from the regular loans is that they are approved within a day, rather than a minimum of weeks that elapses between application and approval of regular loans. Most lenders promise to give loan approval within 24 hours. Most lenders do keep up to their promise and make a fast credit to the borrowers’ bank account. However, there are certain lenders who will make borrowers wait endlessly for approval. It is these lenders whom borrowers must evade in their search for fast loans for unemployed.

As soon as an unemployed borrower shows his desire to use fast loans for unemployed, the lenders tell that they must be prepared to pay a high rate of interest. The hike in interest rate is attributed to the high degree of risk in lending to the unemployed. It must be understood at this stage that the unemployed borrowers are considered with bad credit. With no stable income in hand, they are thought incapable of supporting fixed payments on a loan. Through a high rate of interest lenders try to provide for the worst, i.e. when borrower does not pay.

Fast loans for unemployed are expensive because of the relatively shorter term that they need to be repaid in. All short term loans charge a high rate of interest.

However, unemployed people can find the lenders charging reasonable rate just as they find lenders who deal with the unemployed people. Most such lenders who do offer reasonable rates of interest or can be brought to a reasonable rate of interest have it mentioned on their website. All such lenders must be contacted. Since, it will not be easy to contact each lender personally, it will be beneficial if the lenders are first requested to present a list of the terms on which fast loans for unemployed will be lent. Through a loan quote, borrowers can get a peek into the actual loan terms of a large number of loan providers. Unlike loan calculator which may not have updated entries for the loan rates, loan quote always gives the terms as they are.
