How is a personal loan through Upgrade different from a home equity loan or HELOC?
With Upgrade, you can quickly see your rate and how much you qualify for within minutes of filling out an application online, and the funds for your unsecured personal loan are directly deposited into your account within days of accepting your offer and fulfilling necessary verifications.† Plus, a personal loan can provide you with a low fixed rate and fixed monthly payments, so you know how much to budget each month and can circle the date on the calendar when the loan will be fully paid. With a home equity loan or HELOC, you use the value of your home as collateral, which means you have to first go through the process of getting an updated home appraisal and complete extra paperwork to know how much you qualify for. Plus, using the equity in your home can work against you if property values in the area decline. With a HELOC, you’re issued a line of credit based in part on the difference between your home value and mortgage principal, and the rates on HELOCs may be adjustable, which means your HELOC payments may increase after you receive your money.
Why not use a credit card for my home improvement project?
Credit cards often have high variable interest rates that can increase at any time. This can make it hard to know the true cost of a project and predict when you’ll be able to pay it off. When a specific project cost is mixed in with other living expenses, it can become even more difficult to plan when it’ll be paid off or even recognize when, or if, it has. With a personal loan through Upgrade, we eliminate those surprises. A personal loan can provide you with a low fixed rate and fixed monthly payments, so you know how much to budget each month and can circle the date on the calendar when the loan will be fully paid.
Will checking my rate affect my credit score?
Checking your rate won’t impact your credit score. When you check your rate to see what offer(s) you may qualify for, we perform a soft inquiry on your credit report, which won’t impact your credit score. Soft inquiries can only be seen by you. When you accept your offer and submit your bank account information, we perform a second soft inquiry which also does not impact your credit score. Once your loan is funded, we perform a hard inquiry on your credit report, which may impact your credit score and can be viewed by third parties.
* Personal loans made through Upgrade feature Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) of 8.49%-35.99%. All personal loans have a 1.85% to 9.99% origination fee, which is deducted from the loan proceeds. Lowest rates require Autopay and paying off a portion of existing debt directly. Loans feature repayment terms of 24 to 84 months. For example, if you receive a $10,000 loan with a 36-month term and a 17.59% APR (which includes a 13.94% yearly interest rate and a 5% one-time origination fee), you would receive $9,500 in your account and would have a required monthly payment of $341.48. Over the life of the loan, your payments would total $12,293.46. The APR on your loan may be higher or lower and your loan offers may not have multiple term lengths available. Actual rate depends on credit score, credit usage history, loan term, and other factors. Late payments or subsequent charges and fees may increase the cost of your fixed rate loan. There is no fee or penalty for repaying a loan early.
† Accept your loan offer and your funds will be sent to your bank or designated account within one (1) business day of clearing necessary verifications. Availability of the funds is dependent on how quickly your bank processes the transaction. From the time of approval, funds sent directly to you should be available within one (1) business day. Funds sent directly to pay off your creditors may take up to 2 weeks to clear, depending on the creditor.
