Collateral And Loans

Using the Right Collateral with Your Loan

Borrowing money to start a business can be a risky move, but it can also be a very smart decision if you have a good enough plan in place. Prior to applying for a business loan, it is important that you talk to lenders and find out all of the best options available to you. This can help you find the best rates and also ensure that you get the best deal. More importantly, it can help you determine what to use as collateral on your business loan.

What Are Some Options?

Depending on where you are getting your loan from, there is a variety of different items you can put up as collateral. Some of the more common options include:

  • Real Estate: The more equity you have in your property the better.
  • Automobile: The less you owe on the loan the better.
  • Investments : If you have any investment accounts, you can put those up.
  • Insurance Policies: These can be an effective alternative for those with established policies.
  • Valuables & Collectibles: If you have something that is of measurable value, it can be put up as well.

If you are wondering whether or not one of your assets can be used as collateral, you might want to consult with a business attorney to explore you options more fully.

How Do You Decide?

Ultimately, the most important aspect of deciding what you should put up as loan collateral is how much the loan amount is that you are seeking. If you need to get a substantial loan amount, then you might need to put your home up as collateral. On the other hand, if you only require a small amount of capital you may be able to simply use some valuables that you have collected over the years. Regardless of what you put up as collateral, it is important that you properly plan out your loan and ensure that you can actually pay it off without interruption. If you have a sound business plan in place, you won’t have to worry about what you used, so long as it gets you a large enough loan.
