What Is the Interest Rate on a Personal Loan?
Your loan’s annual percentage rate or APR is the yearly percentage rate a lender charges for your loan, including any loan fees or charges. There are two types of APRs, including variable APRs and fixed APRs.
A variable APR changes depending on market conditions and factors such as prime rate. A fixed APR is a rate that doesn’t change for the life of your loan.
The APR you’re able to receive for your loan will depend on your lender’s options as well as other factors such as your credit score and credit history. When determining which loan is best for you, you’ll want to compare interest rates to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
What Is a Good Interest Rate on a Personal Loan?
A “good” interest rate will be different for everyone. Interest rates are determined by your credit score and debt to income (DTI) ratio. For example, if you have a low credit score or a high DTI, your interest rate may be higher. Or, if you have a high credit score or a low DTI, your interest rate may be lower.
To find the best interest rate for you, we recommend selecting a financial institution that doesn’t charge additional fees that raise the rate. At United Teletech Financial, we only charge interest—no fees apply.
