The Impact of Longer-term Auto Loans on Lenders

Submitted by Golden Eagle Insurance, Inc on January 16, 2019

There are nearly 270 million vehicles registered in the United States, making the country the second largest vehicle market after China. Despite having 1.2 cars per driver, the US continues to see growth in new and used auto sales and auto loan origination. Lenders know that auto loans today look entirely different than those from the past. Gone are the days of predominantly three- to five-year loan terms. Nowadays, most loans are made with terms of five to seven years. While this may not seem like a significant change at first glance, there are many potential ramifications for drivers and lenders once you look under the hood, so to speak, of these trends. Read on to find out how these factors affect lender risk management.

How Lenders can use HELOC's to Improve Customer Relationships

Submitted by Golden Eagle Insurance, Inc on September 30, 2018

Home equity in the United States has reached an all-time high. According to NRMLA, housing wealth grew to $6.2 trillion in 2017. However, some homeowners are more reluctant than ever to tap into their wealth as the costs of financing a HELOC have risen to 5.83% in 2018. Plus, refinancing can be harder than ever before and homeowners are wary of housing troubles caused by the crisis in the early 2000s. But, a recent study on HELOC’s by Transunion predicts that, “The number of consumers opening HELOCs may double during the next five years.” So, even though rates are up and homeowners may be wary, lenders can use home equity loans to deepen customer relationships.

Submitted by Golden Eagle Insurance, Inc on February 21, 2018

VSI and Gap, or Guaranteed Asset Protection, products are in demand as used car values continue to struggle.

The article, Worthless Auto Trade-Ins Signal Riskier Loansby Bloomberg news, reiterates what we all have seen the last few years:  vehicle depreciation is taking a heavy toll. Lender risk is on the rise as longer terms, and lower trade-in values weigh down the LTV in the beginning stages of a loan. These factors causing massive depreciation of a newer financed vehicle deteriorates any chances of being in a good position on LTV during the mid-stages of a loan.
