Updated on April 13, 2015

Many reasons to use a secured loan

Mortgaging a home or home improvement, buying a car, a boat or other recreational vehicle all fall under secured loans and always have been.

Whatever the collateral is to use to secure the loan the lender will consume control over that property. When a large amount of money is loaned out to the borrower, the financial company wants to know that there is some security for them if you falter on that loan.

Other types of secured loans are for those borrowers with not the best credit history, or bad credit. They need money to help pay off other loans and get out of debt. Being able to get a fast loan and use the loan wisely for the main propose of obtaining the loan, will help the borrowers get back on their way to improve their credit score.

      @marsha32: As long as your mother is making her payments, everything should be fine. But when something like this is out of your control (i.e. family member), it can be a bit stressful.

      We actually have an unsecured loan on our van----but my mother has a secured loan using our van as collateral. Probably not a wise choice on our part but she was in trouble and needed help.
