May 10, 2007 by Michael RedbournWhen shouldn't you borrow money? When interest rates are low it can be pretty tempting to borrow money and very often it's right to do so but not always. First thing to think about is if you're taking out a loan just because rates are low and it seems like a good idea. There are plenty of lenders more than ready to lend people money for just about anything if they have a house or other assets. Just make sure that you don't end up losing your home because you borrowed on a whim. So when shouldn't you borrow?
May 6, 2007 by Michael RedbournThere are lots of different places to borrow from. You might be very surprised at how many different organisations will lend you money if you have good credit, a good job or have property. Who will lend you the money depends to a large extent on what you want it for. If you want to buy shares then you can buy on margin and the brokerage house will set the interest rate. For many things simply asking your bank manager for a higher overdraft limit or a loan against assets may be the simplest thing. There are many other places too.
May 5, 2007 by Michael RedbournGood reasons for taking out a loan. Borrowing money and going into debt is not always a bad thing. If you borrow for the right reasons then things might be much rosier than they otherwise might have been. Borrowing money to buy a home is and obvious one but borrowing money to pay for children's education could be a winner. Starting a business if it turns out to be a winner would be great. Then there might be and unexpected emergency or when you retire it would be wonderful and even buying a car might be worth going into debt for.
