Secured Loans for Excellent, Good & Fair Credit

Look in to a home equity loan. We see home equity loans for as little as 2.99% interests now. Start with the bank where you keep your checking account.

Check out the banks that are part of the PowerSaver Program. This is a government supported program that will guarantee loans up to $25,000 from a list of 18 banks and or credit unions. Unlike traditional loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOC) you do not need equity in your home to qualify for the Solar PowerSaver Program. Additionally, no home appraisal needs to take place. Instead, a lien will be place against the property and can be in first or second position. Borrowers must have credit scores of at least 660 and their total debt to income ratios cannot exceed 45 percent. The combined loan-to-value ratio for all loans on a home, including the PowerSaver loan, cannot exceed 100 percent.
