Finance on house/property:

The most preferred option for everyone is getting a personal loan against your own house/property which in other words known as a Mortgage loan. Personal loan against the house is provided on the basis of few factors like your annual salary or annual turnover if you are self-employed, then the market value of your property. Everyone tends to think the loan amount solely depends on the value of the property, which is wrong. The gross annual income plays an important role. Banks take your annual income into consideration and provide 4-6 times more than that. The final finance provided would be up to 65% of the market value of the property.

A person can use his car as security to get cash and keep using the vehicle without any inconvenience until the end of the loan tenure which would mostly be up to 60 months. The loan amount depends on the purchase year of the vehicle, model, and the current market value. Most of the financing companies provide 60%-80% of the current market value of the car.

Getting an unsecured type of personal loan is not so easy. It involves so much documentation work. And banks won’t accept your loan application unless you fit into their eligibility criteria totally. But an advantage of getting personal finance on securities will be considered as a secured type of loan where the customer will have minimal documentation comparatively and easy eligibility requirements, which increases the chances of getting a loan approved effortlessly.
