How to Improve Your Loan Approval Odds

Posted by on November 11, 2019 in Economy, Frugal Living with 0 Comments

Millions of people in the U.S. rely on personal loans to get them through difficult financial times. If you’re experiencing a cash shortage, chances are you’ve probably considered applying for a personal loan. There’s no guarantee that you will be approved, but there are ways to improve your odds. Here’s what to do:

Prepare the Required Documentation

Lenders cannot review your application until you have submitted the required documentation. If this documentation is never submitted, there’s no way you will be approved for a loan. Therefore, it’s best to prepare these documents ahead of time so you have everything you need to get approved.

The requirements can vary depending on the lender and type of loan. For example, lenders will need to see your business’s financial documents if you are applying for a small business loan. However, lenders will need to see the title to your vehicle if you are applying for a car title loan. Reach out to the lender and find out what you will need to provide so you can prepare.

Increase Your Credit Score

The higher your credit score, the more likely it is that you will be approved for a loan. Run a credit check on yourself to see if you need to work on your credit score before applying for a loan. If your credit score falls within the “good” or “excellent” categories, you won’t need to work on your credit. But if it falls below these categories, spend the next few months making on-time payments and paying off your debt to improve your score. You should also take this time to review your credit report and dispute errors that you find.

Don’t Ask For Too Much

The more you ask for, the harder it will be to get approved. If you want to improve your approval odds, it’s best to ask for the bare minimum that you need to meet your financial goals. Furthermore, make sure you are asking for an amount that you are capable of paying back. Lenders will be able to tell if you are biting off more than you can chew, so asking for too much will hurt your chances of getting approved.

Get A Co-Signer

Borrowers with low credit scores or bad credit history can make themselves more attractive to lenders by getting a co-signer. A co-signer is a third party such as a parent or significant other who signs the loan agreement and agrees to pay the debt in the event that the borrower defaults on the loan. The third party that co-signs your loan must have a good credit score and favorable credit history in order to make the lender more comfortable with the idea of giving you a loan.

Having a co-signer can drastically improve your odds of getting approved, but unfortunately, it’s not easy to find someone who is willing to put their name on your loan.

By following these tips, you can finally get approved for a loan and secure the cash you need to resolve your financial problems.
