    People with poor credit feel that it is difficult to get personal loans. However, there are many financial companies and banks that provide loans to bad credit applicants. Bad credit personal loans are generally soughtThe interest rates on secured loans are lower than unsecured loans. However, there is always the risk of losing your house or property if the loan is not repaid.

    yes it will hurt your score…

    Your score will be impacted by the mere fact that you apply for the loan.

    If after borrowing the money and paying off the student debt you still have total debt greater than it is not that will have a negative impact on your score.

    If the student loans are a problem consolidate them and stretch out the payment terms. Don’t waste money fixing up the house you are getting ready to move out of that would be senseless. In most cases people spend more fixing up a house they are planning on selling than they get back for the increase in the sale price of the house compared to just selling as is. Remember, someone buying a used house will always have things they want to change and the odds of you changing something just like the buyer would have are about zero.

    If you have excellent credit now then applying for a personal loan will not affect your score enough to change what you qualify for.

    If you have a lot of inquiries during the last month in different industries (personal loan, couch installment credit check, mortgage loan credit check, car loan credit check…etc) then that can negatively affect your credit.
