Get the money you need when you need it. A personal loan from Customers Bank can help.
Apply for a $50,000 Personal Loan
Proceeds from a $50,000 personal loan or home equity line of credit can be used for almost anything. So whether you want to consolidate credit card debt, get married, fund a large purchase, make home-improvement changes, or pay off unforeseen expenses, a Customers Bank personal loan can help you get where you want to be.
Getting an unsecured personal loan means no collateral is required, so you are not risking any assets. These loans can be a valuable option for improving your financial position if you use them to refinance existing debts. Another option is a home equity line of credit, which gives you access to a line of credit with a set limit, much like a credit card. This type of loan, however, uses your home equity as collateral for the loan, putting your home ownership at risk. The loan amount is determined based on the appraised value of your home minus the balance due on your mortgage.
Improve Financial Standing with a Personal Loan
Before taking out a $50,000 personal loan or a home equity line of credit, you must consider several factors. Smart borrowing leads to healthier financial well-being and increases creditworthiness, whereas taking out unnecessary loans can harm your credit.
Still, there are ways to use the funds to improve your financial standing and increase your net worth. For example, applying for a personal loan or line of credit to pay for home improvements can increase your property value. Increasing the value of your home gives you greater equity and will increase your profitability at the time of sale.
Consolidating debt is another way a personal loan can help increase your financial well-being. For example, instead of paying multiple high-interest rate credit cards, a $50K personal loan or line of credit can allow you to manage all of your debt with one lender and potentially save you money with lower interest.
Other ways a loan can improve your financial standing include:
- Finance a major expense
- Increase your credit score
- Pay off medical expenses
- Use it for an investment
Before You Apply
Before applying for a loan, examine your current finances. List all of your debts and compare them to your cash flow. Your debt-to-income ratio will tell you whether you can afford to add new debt.
Second, examine your credit report. While lenders typically offer the best interest rates to the most well-qualified borrowers, you can generally get approved for a personal loan with a 620 score or higher. In addition, once you request a credit report, you can dispute credit errors to increase your score and the likelihood of a better interest rate offer.
When it’s time to apply for a loan, have all of your documentation ready. Lenders will need to verify your employment, check your financial records, and ensure that you can get approval. Locate these and have them ready:
- Photo Identification
- Proof of Residency
- W2 or Pay Stubs
- Financial Reports
- Social Security Number
A personal loan can be used for a variety of different purposes and, in some cases, can help improve your overall financial well-being. Customers Bank offers qualified applicants $50,000 personal loans and home equity lines of credit. Apply online and receive a projected interest rate within minutes.
