Shopping for a Secured Personal LoanWritten by John Mussi

Another advantage of a secured personal loan is that they're much easier to get than unsecured loans. After all, collateral serves as a guarantee that lender will be getting their money back… that makes them more willing to offer loans to people with questionable credit. Should you default on loan, they still won't lose money that they lend you (though they will have to go through trouble and expense of possessing collateral and selling it.)
The main disadvantage of a secured personal loan is penalty for defaulting on loan… losing your collateral. In some cases this isn't as bad as others… after all, it's much better to lose some rare coins than it is to lose your house. With fast and consistent repayment, however, this drawback can be easily avoided. The fear of losing your collateral can even be turned into an advantage after all, you have a wonderful reason to make all of your payments on time.
