How can a loan help me consolidate debt and fix bad debt?
If you have debt spread across numerous creditors, it can be hard to keep track of what needs to be paid and when. By putting all your debts into one simple payment it becomes a lot easier to manage and therefore reduces the chances of accidently missing payments.
By taking a £3,000 loan with 118 118 Money with a better APR than you are currently paying, you will end up paying less interest which means you will be able to pay off your debt quicker. Although it is also worth remembering that a loan taken at a higher interest rate over a shorter term could cost you less overall.
How will home improvements help me financially?
If your heart is where your home is then making some home improvements could help improve your quality of life.
If you own your own home then a few simple improvements (like a new bathroom suite or landscaped garden) could improve the house value if you decide to sell in the future.
