					Applying For Your First Loan

Applying for one of the many type of loans available for the first time
can be very nerve wracking, especially if you have no idea what is
involved in the process. Some of the several loan types available
include:

•   Student loans
•   Business loans
•   Mortgage loans
•   Car loans
•   Personal loans

The first thing you need to understand is that most lenders such as banks
or mortgage brokers make more money giving people loans than not lending
the money, so prefer to approve loans rather than reject them. Lenders
will look at the loan application to help them decide whether to approve
or decline your loan. They look for information such as a sound, steady
employment record, working at the same job for at least a year, steady
income and the assets you have such as personal property and vehicles.
Other things that work in your favor and make a difference in whether you
get a loan is proof of savings, bills paid when due and low credit card
balances with sound repayment history. For people that rent, lenders are
looking for on-time rental payments or payments made in advance.

When filling out a loans application form in person, it is extremely
important to fill it properly, paying close attention to details. No
potential lender wants to see an application that is difficult to read
because the handwriting or printing is overly small, large or sloppy.
Avoid using capital letters when filling out an online loan application
form except on names, states, street addresses and other words that
require capitals.

It is important to make yourself look as positive as possible on the
loans application, whether you have an excellent or poor credit rating,
but without fabricating any information or telling lies. The information
should be as truthful, honest and accurate as humanly possible. If a
potential lender discovers that any of the information you put in the
loans application is untrue, there is a very good chance they will deny
your loan.

When filling out a loans application form, be very sure to fill it out
completely without leaving any blank fields because a potential lender
may see this as a red flag that you are hiding something. If you
unintentionally omit some information, it could mean a denied
application, a new application to fill out, or a phone call from the
potential lender with you making a trip back to complete the application
properly. If there are any areas on the loans form that do not apply to
you, instead of leaving it blank, write ‘does not apply’ or ‘N/A’
instead.
