Southern Cross Credit Union offers both a secured and unsecured personal loan option to customers. Across both variations loan terms range from 3 to 7 years, there is the option of weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments (with extra repayments allowed) and no exit or early repayment penalty.
With the secured loan, customers can borrow between $5,000 and $150,000 and receive a lower variable interest rate. The catch is because the loan is secured, borrowers must put either their property or a vehicle up as collateral. On the other hand, if you want a loan that requires no collateral the unsecured loan option might be suitable. But keep in mind, loan terms only go up to $30,000 and the variable interest rate is higher.
Also remember, no matter if you choose the secured or unsecured option you will need to budget for an upfront application cost.
After a car loan instead? Southern Cross Credit Union has that on offer too!
This loan has the same borrow amounts, loan terms, features and fees as the secured loan option, however it is designed for the purchase of a vehicle. Meaning the car you intend to buy using the loan is put up as collateral.
