4 Things To Know Before Getting A Property-Backed Loan

What are property-backed loans?

Do you know that you can potentially free up working capital for your business if you own a local residential, commercial or industrial property? Property-backed loans are secured loans taken by pledging a local property as a form of collateral against the loan. The pledged local property can be owned by the companies and/or directors of the companies. 

Taking up a property-backed loan with Funding Societies will allow you to access funds of up to 80% of your property’s value. As you only need to pay monthly interests, you will be able to maximize the utilization of your cash throughout the loan. You generally will be able to obtain the lower interest rates as compared to an unsecured loan. The loan is applicable to all companies, regardless of size, which means that startups can also take up this loan.
