Lending

Finding the Right Loan

Understanding the impact of the things you buy is critically important! We want everything now and we have been taught that we owe it to ourselves, after all we deserve the very best!

Our grandparents saved until they had the cash to pay for these items, but with easy access to credit most of us buy what we want, and we seldom wait. We have been taught to focus on interest rates instead of loan terms and the "true cost" of the things we buy. Consequently, the average American walks away from more than $1,000,000 in their lifetime by avoiding or ignoring the true cost of their debt.

In essence, we rob ourselves by spending our retirement early, instead of measuring the impact of these daily decisions. We spend the dollars we could have saved and the interest we could have compounded, because we can’t see retirement today.

Installment Interest

Installment interest is generally paid on term loans for things like a car, a house, a boat or and recreational vehicle. If we owe $10,000 on an installment loan and we pay an extra $1,000 to principal it may shorten the term of the loan from 60 months to 50 months. However, the payment stays the same and if we default on the loan we can lose the item, even though we paid extra payments.

Revolving Interest

Revolving interest is generally paid on revolving loans for things like credit cards, department store cards, or a home equity line of credit. If we owe $10,000 on a revolving loan and we pay an extra $1,000 to the principal it lowers both the principal and the payment. So, if we continue to pay the same payments, it will pay off the principal much sooner because the interest compounds in our favor. Every payment we make after the lump sum payment of $1,000 lowers our payment every month, and the interest is reduced much quicker than the installment loan.

Buying a Car

  1. Do your homework before you start looking for a specific car. Develop a budget and research cars online to find the right make model and year.
  2. Don’t get hung up on the new car smell! Buying a great used car can save you thousands of dollars.
  3. Use online tools like TrueCar or Carfax to establish an average price and service record for the car or cars you have chosen.
  4. Next, gather up your taxes for the last couple of years, your last two pay stubs, and talk to your bank or credit union about the rate and terms. Have your lender prequalify you for an amount that matches your budget.
  5. It’s time to find a car. Look online or head to a dealership to find the right car for you. Don’t fall in love, stick to your budget. If the dealer can’t beat your rate stick with your pre-approved deal.
  6. The sticker price is not the sale price, negotiate to get the best deal. Rely on the research you’ve done and do not let anyone pressure you.
