How to Get a Personal Loan in Asheville, NC


The average credit card APR in October of 2014 was 15.07%. With such rates, sometimes a personal loan is a more cost-efficient way of getting your hands on the money you need with the interest rates you can afford.

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when considering how to get a personal loan in Asheville, NC.

Factors to Consider Before Applying for a Personal Loan

  • You’ll need to find a bank that offers personal loans. In Asheville, NC, First Bank has three locations that offer such a service. You can read about First Bank’s personal loan program here.*
  • A secured loan will require some sort of collateral such as a vehicle, real estate, or stocks. This is put up in the event that you are unable to repay the loan.
  • You’ll need to show at least one form of valid I.D., and may need to show a social security card as well.
  • A way of showing your income will only increase your chances of getting a personal loan. Lenders will feel more confident in your ability to repay the loan based on your income level.
  • You may also need to show tax returns and other financial information.

How-To: Get a Personal Loan
