Work harder, get a promotion, buy yourself a nice house and the latest plasma tv and if you can’t afford it, there is always a financial institution on the corner of the street ready to lend more money. Many people have fallen into the deadly spiral of credit. For those who are, maybe it’s time to get in line with a debt elimination process and to get valid information on certain type of financing. This is where Get Loaned can help you out.

What is

This web site has been created to provide internet users with valid information on different types of loan. For example, you can determine if you are eligible for a VA Mortgage or a FHA Mortgage. Those two financial products have interesting characteristics such as low interest rate. From my understanding, several people could have access to these types of lending but do not know that they are eligible.

What makes you want to visit this site?

If you are looking for other ways to get financing by paying low interest rate or for more flexible lending options, you may find what you are looking for at Get Loaned.

Since I am not American, I didn’t know about them. So I went through this web site with the curiosity of discovering other type of financing. The VA Loan for example, is available for veterans and may offer better lending condition than your current debts.

Are the resources really helpful?

While the information on the site is clear and seems to be valid (I’m not too familiar with American credit products), I was hoping to find a little bit more about credit but I will cover this topic later on.

What is interesting about Get Loaned is that you have a access to information and they are not trying to sell the loan. If you want to go further, they link to another website offering these products. In fact, there are absolutely no ads, buttons or banners on the site. Simple and shy links are placed here and there within the text.

Can improvements be done?

I would certainly start with the design. While is it clear and easy to navigate, I think we are missing something sexy. I am well aware that financing options are not the more glamorous thing on earth but this is exactly why we need some color or curves in the design.

There are a lot of other possibilities to be developed with this kind of website. First, they could write example of the benefits gained from VA loans or FHA loans with a “before and after” scenario. Second, they could try to have a similar template to what the mortgage company they are linking to. Please note that I used the word similar as doing an exact copy would mislead customer to think that it is the same owner that runs both sites.

Third, as I mentioned previously, I was expecting to find more information such as tips on how to manage credit. An article section where we can read additional information on specific topics should be created. Fourth, depending on the commercial link between the mortgage company and Get Loaned, they could also make a comparison chart with different lenders for the same products. It is always interesting for customers to see what is offered on the market and the difference from one institution to another.
