We take consumer and business privacy very seriously, and all of your information is safe and secure in a variety of different ways.

An unsecured loan, or personal loan, is a loan that is based solely on the borrower’s creditworthiness, rather than on any type of collateral. An unsecured loan can be used for nearly any purpose, including home improvements, debt consolidation, travel, medical & dental wedding expenses, and many more.
A secured loan is a loan that is secured by a valuable asset, such as a car or home. The asset is used as collateral for the loan, and if you default, the bank or lender can repossess the car, home, or other asset that is pledged.
There are no requirements to accept any of the options that are presented. It’s best practice to notify the lender directly that you are declining their offer so that they can allocate that money to someone else.
HelloRates is not a lender and does not pull credit or make credit decisions. HelloRates works with best in class lenders and card providers through our loan portal engine. Most lenders will only pull a soft credit report that will not affect your score. Most credit card providers that can be found through the HelloRates site will pull a credit report in order to make their final underwriting decision.
“A soft credit inquiry is an inquiry that occurs when either you, a credit card company, or a lender checks your credit to pre-approve you to offer you credit. Soft inquiries do not appear on your credit report, nor do they impact your credit scores whatsoever.
A hard credit inquiry is an inquiry that occurs when you apply to a bank or lender so they can review your credit report as part of their decision-making process. A hard inquiry does show up on your credit report and will impact your credit score. This type of inquiry appears on your credit report for two years (24 months), however, it will only impact your credit score for the first year (12 months).”
HelloRates never charges the consumer any fees to utilize the services. Each lending partner you are matched with determines their own policy on what they charge. We are unable to determine the amount of closing costs or out-of-pocket expenses you may incur; however, if we are able to match you with a lending partner, you can discuss your specific situation with them once you review their loan terms and are in contact.
HelloRates is on a mission to change the way financial rates are obtained. Our sole focus is to save you time and money by leveraging market leading technology and data science metrics to provide lower rates and a better, faster user experience.
