I know it would be tempting, but keep dollar cost averaging into thoe stock funds. So we wait and save. I did not invest another dime in that fund. First off let me say many of the people here who have commented are doing a great job on there future retirement goals.

When my mortgage payment loan percent was greater than the bank interest paid me I paid off the mortgage. I paid my way through school while working full time and emerged with no debt.
I spent the time from 21 — 23 working 80 — hour weeks and now support my father, not vice versa. Despite this I am about to turn 24 with a net worth of k. Presumptuous yes… Obnoxious maybe…. Because you are an outlier does not make the statement false, especially since the statistics of this article back his statement up. Worked my tail off my whole life so far. No one has or is going to give me anything. I had to earn all of it. No, just know the reality of life. Taught by Great Depression mentality of my Father.
Always am talking to my kids. They seem sensible about things such as this. Hope they remember these conversations we have. People need more than they think by these charts. Medical I assume is covered at that time by employer if you are lucky to take you to 67 for Medicare. This will cover all taxes, insurance, food, utilities, clothing, auto repairs, little bit of travel but not much, and other sundries. Anything able to be gotten above that is gravy.
Once you hit 62, Social Security can kick in and help out, and the outlay from the K-1M initial can start to be built back up from prior withdrawals, hopefully to the point that it becomes self sustaining with positive cash flows into instead of out.
Wish all well and hope those that need to save start doing so as soon as they are back on their feet from this terrible economic situation we are in now. Anyone my age expecting social security when they retire is in for a real bad surprise and should be saving more than current experts suggest. Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme by a gentler moniker! They want you to think it will be gone. The ruling rich class does not want to pay you a dime, they want to work the life out of you and throw you away.
As long as regular folks stick together and demand benefits nobody will ever take them away. Im not talking socialism either, I am talking about a society that demands for a reasonible effort to take care of its retired and disadvanted individuals. Over half of retired Americans find S. S their major source of funds. I believe over half of them find it their ONLY source of funds. Age bias as a consultant is not as prevalent as a consultant vs. Cutting to the chase: We need to remain where we are in the north east due to client presence and a great amount of electronic equipment and a small machine shop in my square foot basement.
I am pretty much in the same boat as you are. My husband, 61, and I, 59 are retiring this year. We are hoping that we will be able to subsist without having to draw from our savings for our retirement.
Do you think we could do it? It is true that pensions are going through a major overhaul. We just had major changes that will affect our overall pension funding. Meanwhile, I have to save balls to the walls, as taking the lump sum option would grossly minimize my benefit, even with the 72t option. I will retire right before my 48th birthday with a three legged combined income stream of about 65k the initial year and COLA after that.
I will have to be careful to look at my contingency place — which is to take the lump sum option should I have to, and invest that while I live off of my funds. Hopefully i can make my income work for me, no matter what the case and move over to open a job for someone else. Would never be able to get that deal in the private sector. Been a while since I last wrote.
Quite a few scenarios out there. Looks like the public employees are steam rolling over anything the average working person can ever hope to retire with. I took a good beating since I last wrote with investments and house value. Still figure to be OK though since almost everyone has also been hammered. Current investments much more solid. Most in my field do. Add K minimum for paid off house. Keeping risk low now until post election.
Good for you, Daniel. It is not easy, but has been rewarding for you and the others with similar stories in similar positions, I hope. People may find it difficult to believe how it is possible to be disheartened with such nice savings levels right now, but the last four to five years have been nothing short of devastating and confidence shaking for people like you who worked really, really hard, felt they did everything right, and got caught in the flash crashes, general market down turns, and mortgage mess, a sandbox we never played in.
The idea those people with some wealth built up this way should be taxed or should lose their promised retirement perks from the government are appalling. Congress needs to turn the mirror to itself and resolve to solve what they can of this mess to restore confidence while not killing the progress we are making so far. While most of the idiots in the army waste their money, buy big trucks, or pop out a dozen kids, I save my money. My net worth is over k.
You should be proud of your accomplishments. Take a look at the unemployment rates for high school grads compared to college grads? The mistake kids make is that they think college has to be a six figure cost. Community colleges or commuting to 4 year schools can make a big difference so you are not saddled with debt. My retort to your ignorant comment is that im 25 and i went to college and i make k a year. Why dont you not give advice to those whose minds are not quite developed.
Maybe if kids started learning math and science in this country we wouldnt have to ask china to pay our bills. The army is a place for people who dont belong in jail. I agree many young americans waste their time and resources attending college, and maybe they shouldnt be there, but dont preach your bullshit if you dont know what kind of opportunities higher education can provide since the military is not equivalent.
But I make K a year. I have a net worth of 6 million. Not to burst your bubble but a pharmasist salary is great to start but you will be making about the same money in 15 years. I can absolutely believe this. I just turned 39, never had the opertunity to attend collage and have a net worth of over 10M.
It took the most time to get the first million, even through the great recession growth was still much easier then my start. Just my 2 cents. Good for you Jack. Teach others what you do and make them understand why it is important to look out for yourself like you are. Keep getting educated though. You will need it. One day you will leave the Army and will likely need more than what a retirement check from Uncle Sam will give you for 20 years service.
First off let me say many of the people here who have commented are doing a great job on there future retirement goals. I for one have been a saver and took it further by realizing that it is not what you save but how much you spend.
I realized in a foreign country like Thailand where I reside now I can live off my savings very easily. My cost of living has gone down to one forth what it was in the U. I live in a 2 bedroom 2 bath luxury condo on the 19th floor with views that stretch out to the horizon and a beautiful lake at my feet with every imenity you could want eat organic foods the best health care and insurance transportation is provided cheap by taxis everywhere at my beck and call.
The beauty of this is my savings are not being depleted like you would imagine because the interest from my investments go so much further than they ever would in the overpriced hype of the U. I am interested in knowing what the net worth of people in Los Angeles Beach cities are, such as Redondo Beach.
Yet house prices are sky high. I suspect people are thinking that real estate is their retirement plan. And I am nowhere near retirement. I would be bored! Not sure if I want to own a house anyway. I started working by mowing lawns and working as a caddy when I was As soon as I was old enough to work I had a summer job. I paid for my own cell phone, own gasoline, and own car insurance. I will contend that my parents loaned me their 11 year old used car to use while I was in high school.
However, upon my entrance to college they sold the car. I am currently going to college on full academic scholarship for 4 years to study civil engineering. This salary will help me pay for my meals, books, and allow me to pay off a new car before graduation. I think it is very conceivable for a self made man or woman to achieve the numbers that have been mentioned in the previous comments.
Not to mention, I feel that the people who actually understand financial matters and care enough to look up these topics online, typically are the ones who are financially ahead of the majority of Americans who are head over heels in debt.
And there really is not a difference between being given a full ride scholarship and having mommy and daddy pay for you, the point is your wallet is not taking the hit. Which further solidfies the point that the poster you are replying to made. By the way my story is the exact same as yours, same degree, same employment offer….
Difference, I paid for my school. Kids be very careful of the whole college trap. I am 45 years old net worth 2. I got into construction right out of high school! I make K or more a year, but my body just cant do the hard labor any more! So without a degree i would be lucky to make 30k doing something that doesent hurt my body!
I have a nice net worth as well. So you have made a lot of money in the trade. It might be time to use youre experiance and money and become a manager, trust me the phone is lighter than a hammer and seams to make a lot more money! Long time Mike, sorry to ruin your day but this liar made over 2 million on a real estate deal last month! Step up and make me prove it! Or you could do another bong hit!
Hmmm…is that Cliff as in Cliff Claven? At first you made k or more and now you make k. No, I know plenty of guys who went into construction. I have witnessed it all. In my personal experience, guy did horrible work.
Invested all his money into his little estate and the foundation cracked. He has to go out of state to land jobs.
You do good work. But at the same time you get burned. I just got burned 60k yesterday. Hopefully I will earn it back within the next week. I am know make over k in my construction job this year with government contracts. I even did this with obamacare stealing for the good working citizens. I am sick of all of all you people taking my taxes.
You should all work for me if obamacare and socialists are no longer. You sound like a fucking tool. It seems having ones own successful business is the only way to feather a nest than eat like the birds.: Harry, you drive a Camry and you have not made your wife cum in years. You think you have a great job but you dont! You shop at Wall Mart! You sit your fat ass in front of the TV every Sunday and watch football!
You might even have a fantacy team! Yea i cant spell for shit, but i nailed you and i am rich!!!!!!! Stop pretending to be a baller. One can get a very good quality education at a community college and finish the other two years at a state university.
I do recommend people to finish their masters degrees too because unfortunately a Bachelor degree these days is as common as a high school diploma was thirty years ago.
You have to work harder to stand out and earn the big bucks. I recommend working on your MS degree while you are in your professional field after your BS degree. By going to a state university, you save yourself from the enormous student debt and you gain wealth faster than the graduates of the snobby schools.
A smart graduate would start a k and Roth IRA right away. The Ivy league graduates will be too burdened by debt to fund a k or IRA. You get a jump on them and will retire before them with lots nice cars and a nice house.
I am a financial advisor and think these figures are well represented for the population as a whole…Many people spend as much or more than they make. This in turn precipitates into the low money syndrome where most people are short on cash.
At the end, it is you who have to look at in the mirror when you retire. It pains me to see the same thing happening over and over again…some families taking financial advise from their broke relatives perpetuated by the global media. It was over k before the stock market went to the dumpster. Most of mine is in cash, but some in my house. I am the sole bread winner in my family.
But k around where I live can buy you a nice new sqft home which in CA would cost well over 1 million dollars. Education does help if you get the right degree. Although my parents did pay for my education, my net worth was the result of my hard work and no-one elses.
My goal is 2 million by the time I retire.. Cash will not take you there. Over the hill, I agree with your advice. I am one of those prodigious accumulators of wealth. While I do use credit and it amounts to 0. One should take indulgences though. I am 19 and I have already saved 3k in my k. I have in my savings account, in my checking and a paid off credit card with a dollar limit. I have my college paid for through my work, I think I am definitely off to a great start. Vince, I agree, you are off to a great start!
I did not start investing until age You will never regret starting investing in your teens. I regret NOT starting investing earlier than I did.
I am 52, married, with two kids left to put through college. A million dollars net worth is great by the age of You and your wife would be grossing 65k a year in a foriegn country like thailand that would be equavilent to k a year in the USA your life would be anything that your heart desires living like royalty for sure.
So I have a million dollar net worth at age 52, and my retirement choices will be to either live on a rice-farm in Thailand, or a trailer-park in the US. Steve, perhaps you are being overly negative. If you have saved up a million dollars, with your peak earning years still ahead of you, that is great.
Stop encouraging more farangs to go to Thailand Steven! Thailand is not as cheap as it was 20 years ago. Probably a lot more. But it is still a lot cheaper than retiring in the United States. I would honestly say that a single person over 50 years old who has a retirement visa in Thailand could live on 24k a year about k baht.
This is for someone that eats like the locals baht or 1. It would also include a monthly rent of about dollars a month for efficiency studio or one bedroom in Bangkok. So if you add in another dollars a month for entertainment, soap, shampoo, travel, laundry, etc. For most people with golfing as a hobby, and other things to stay active, I would say that between 3k to 4k usd is more accurate.
Buy an annuity with your 1 million dollars and get dollars a month and you are set for life. If you can wait another years then interest rates will go up and you will be able to get to a month with an immediate annuity.
But rates must go up a lot more than the present. So there it is folks, Thailand retirement for those with 1 million dollars. Live like a king in the land of smiles. Your figures are pretty high for expenses. Better to live just outside the city in the Suburburbs, this way you can get much cheaper housing, much quieter and cleaner air to breath without all the crowds. I have never spent a month here and I live like royalty.
I usally spend about 16, dollars U. I think it would be useful to slice and dice by where a person lives ie based on city size. Really puts things into perspective. Very interesting, love the stats too. I thought the numbers would be a bit higher to be honest.
But I guess net worth excludes primary home. So I think I am in the ballpark. I have a wife and two daughters with college bills ahead of me and a new business to start. I embrace the opportunity and the challenges ahead of me in these difficult times.
I live within my means have never owned a luxury car and love each day that I get to spend on this beautiful earth. Money is important but it is not everything. Doing the Millionaire Next Door thing, although I will treat myself to creature comforts from time to time.
My only upset is that my extra-curricular entrepreneurial ambitions have borne little fruit. How do I have 50K at 25? I spend lots of time planning budgets and goals on spreadsheets and reading websites like these. No fancy smart phone, no cable that never has anything good on anyway , almost never pay full price for anything. That said, take a girl out now and then. You sound smart and funny. Atributes a real women would be looking for. While your living, disposable income is a better measure of wealth than net worth.
How much you have to spend outside your basic needs is real wealth. You need to keep things such as a home and car. When you die or have a financial emergency then net worth assets such as a home, property, etc.
You, or your heirs, can turn it into disposable income producing assets or use it to pay off debt. The differences between living on a coast and in the middle of the country are huge when you consider things like rent or mortgages, insurance, and other cost of living items.
You can find details at earlyretirementextreme dot com. I started my career as a high school teacher in the Bay area which has a relatively high cost of living making less than 40k a year.
My wife and I were able to save and invest 20k my first year of teaching, and as our salaries grew we kept out spending levels at roughly the same level. Now that we are both 32 we have saved a little more than k we do not own a house and have no debt. We got a late start because we had to pay off college debt — if I had been smarter and had gone to community college first then transferred, we could have shaved a couple more years off of our retirement or if you prefer, financial independence date.
Hold yourself to a higher standard. Figure out what your freedom and time are worth, and go for it. Do you really need to eat out every day? Do you really need to own all the latest high-end electronics and games? Do you really need to buy everything new? Do you really need to buy that book or movie at all? I agree that many people spend their money on stupid things.
Just as many people would look at me and say…. There is more to life than saving money at every possible corner of life. I have no choice but to live with it. The bulk of my worth is in paid for real estate and mutual funds. The problem with retirement would be current income in my case so I guess I will just keep working.
Will you networth protect you from the economy? The economy is non-linear. Non-linear equates to chaos theory. Chaos is one of Physics Foibles — non-predictable.
Butterflies may cause tornadoes!!! Married once and still married. Only real estate I own is my home. No other income or major assets. If you can fund yourself through age 67, wait before taking your social security. At age 58, it will still be there for you. It is the 20 and 30 year olds who may see their taxes rise or their retirement age pushed back. Andy, k is not alot for a house in many places. I detect that you are resentful and jealous and the same time.
God bless the world!! Doing more calculations my wife will collect SS at 62 and I will delay mine. If I die first my wife will collect my larger SS check. Personal finance was something I had to learn on my own. Max out your K, live in a house you can afford, pay of all CCk, stay married and never buy a new car.
Took a bit of a hit in the housing and stock market, but nothing like some folks. Drive a 7 year old paid off car when I have to, but only drive on the weekends. Zero credit card debt. Zero student loan debt just paid off. My biggest mistake is buying a home when I did.
It needs work and the value has dropped at least 20 percent. To make up for the loss I put, at least, an extra towards my mortgage every month. Needless to say, those plans are mostly on hold. At least 10 to 20K lost on those already. If I was renting still I could arguably save another thousand dollars a month between mortgage and repairs.
My pay will likely take a hit in the coming years with the anti-government sentiment reaching new highs. Unfortunately, professional staff who are underpaid for their experience and education will go down with the overpaid, uneducated state workers. I hope to sell my home in and move to a state a little more progressive than Ohio where jobs and pay are better.
I will be renting wherever I end up. If it is any consolation, I was in your shoes in when the housing bubble burst last time. After 15, they went crazy again and I sold. You are doing a lot better than most year-olds, and if you stay the course, you will easily have a seven-figure net worth by the time you retire. My one regret was adding on to and improving my home. I sold the home to a developer at the height of the market, and it all tasted the same to the bulldozer.
A lot of other people are counting on Social Security which will be a rude shock when benefits are cut in or thereabouts. Otherwise, retirement will be a rather bleak and sad existence. And yet, many baby boomers are slated to retire in the near future, and 1 out of 5 has bubkis in the bank. We had to close our store in due to the economy and the tremendous debt run up to keep the business going as long as we did.
We had to file Chapter 7 personally and for our business. Unfortunately, it will take winning the lottery or a large inheritance to see us through our retirement years. We plan to work til we die!! I am sorry toy hear that Drew. Make your own booklet not difficult. You could do this from home part time or full. Whatever floats your boat. I know this guy that is doing K in his basement doing what I just told you. These numbers really do not surprise me at all.
The under 25 category speaks for itself. This does not take into account inheritance. Boomers will inherit the largest sum of money in human history… bar the Romans…. This is silly, I am 25 and have over k. They are saying the average for 25 year old is 8 k? My wife and I decided when we married 38 years ago that we had no intention of working into our sixties.
My wife retired at age I retired when I reached Today we have a net worth close to two million dollars. We were able to amass this amount by investing, rather than buying every new gimmick sold by advertisers. Today we travel around the world for up to three months a year. The one thing I have learned about those who seem to own all the newest items which come on the market.
I am now 60 and my wife is So our net worth is well above the average for our age group. If we were able to start with nothing and be where we are today financially. Thinking I should invest in real estate, what other investments might be a good idea? And it does not say if these value are the sum of the account value in the range divided by the population or divided by the number of accounts. Some people have no account. So if you divide by the total population, then you get a low number, however the average or median value of each account is much higher!
However, fretting over status, and become obsessed with mounting an oblivious pile of money critical Mass you are still a slave to that, and might as well be in debt, because you are never satisfied. A true measure of a man is not how much he makes , but how he spends it. Enjoy life and spend it well before you have a heart attack worrying about it. I am 58, invested in single family homes.
Waited till the market boomed it cycles about every 7 years , then refinanced one and paid off the rest. Did this a few times until I have a dozen homes with rental income along with my salary. I pay my ex a large amount every year, and have to watch out for female predators! Listen to the sage advice of people who have been through the tough times. Life can, and is very good here in the U.
These are statistics and they do not lie! Most Americans fail to realize cars, houses, cloths, furniture do not count as an asset and only liquid funds do.
We live in a very ignorant society!!!! The home is most certainly an asset. The mortgage is a liability. I am currently 19 years old, and the career I am planning to go into will make around k per year. Problem is, by the age of 30 I need to accumulate close to k of wealth so that I can write my parents a k check so I can buy them a home in their dream country Japan. Btw, currently I have 15k saved up, and next summer I should be pulling in another k, so I should be graduating college with at least 20k.
I work closely with these wall street crooks so I can give u some good stock advice. Stocks are a scam. U only make money if u know the game is rigged. YouTube Jim crammer market manipulation. Very annoyed by the young kids bragging about their net worth. In fact the stock market is fraudulent, and obviously when stocks like Bank of America and bear sterns go from 50 to mere penny stocks then of course older people who used to have 3 million in their accounts are wiped out.
That is what young Americans should be saving by the time they hit Even then, u guys should easily be in the half the million mark. I worked as a active trader in the London comex silver futures and talk to many people double my age telling me how bad the market crash killed their retirement funds.
Jp Morgan and gold man sach are crooks. I used to work for them, so I saw first hand how many of the older generation hedge funds were purposely raped for the scumbags that rig wall street. Hard money loans can finance the purchase of a single-family home as well as a multi-unit property.
Hard money loans are generally found through either local lenders or national and reputable online lenders. Local lenders can be referred to you by your Realtor or local real estate investment group and they can also be found in our state-by-state hard money lender directory which has lenders in all 50 states. Online lenders can be found here in our best hard money lender guide , which compares the top reputable nationwide online lenders. If you want to get pre-qualified today with one of our recommended nationwide online hard money lenders, then check out Lending Home.
They offer competitive rates to prime borrowers and can get you prequalified in just a few minutes. National hard money lenders generally offer a standardized loan application process. LendingHome , for example, makes it easy to apply for a hard money loan by providing borrowers with an online application that that gets rid of unnecessary and time-consuming forms and documents.
With national hard money lenders, borrowers can use a secure online portal to upload the correct information and forms. This helps speed up and streamline the hard money lending process.
Borrowers typically use pre-qualification to get a thumb in the air understanding regarding their potential loan. After seeing their potential loan size, costs, fees, and terms, investors can use the information to set a maximum budget and move forward with the purchase of an investment property.
LendingHome , for example, uses this stage to help borrowers compile their loan options, compare different offers, and assess financing choices. Specifically, you should expect to provide the following during the pre-qualification phase:. Based on this information, hard money lenders such as LendingHome provide borrowers with a list of hard money loan options. This conveys the message that the borrower is qualified and can afford to purchase the property.
Loan applications are approved during the funding phase. Lenders request additional and more specific information during this stage to make a final decision.
The funding phase is more intense than the initial pre-approval or pre-qualification stage. They also determine if the property is one that they want to lend on based on its potential after-repair-value ARV , purchase price, neighborhood and cost of repairs. This means that they look at your credit score and the accounts on your credit report.
Capacity is your ability to repay the loan so this is where your documented proof of income is needed. A hard money lender is an individual or private company that lends money to an investor based primarily on the real estate as collateral. Fix-and-flippers and long-term investors use hard money lenders to get short-term loans that help them renovate and sell or refinance a property. However, hard money and soft money also refer to political donations.
Generally, hard money is from political donations that are regulated by the Federal Election Commission. Soft money is generally from nonregulated donations.
The distinction between hard money and soft money, therefore, has no meaning in the context of real estate. Instead, hard money specifically describes short-term loans with interest-only payments and that can finance renovations.
Hard money loans are useful for short-term fix-and-flippers as well as buy-and-hold investors looking to renovate investment properties. Hard money loans offer a short approval process, interest-only payments, and can fund the purchase and renovation of an investment property. Hard money lenders such as LendingHome offer competitive rates for prime borrowers.
Both short-term investors and long-term investors can get pre-qualified in minutes and LendingHome can have you funded in around 10 — 15 days.
Allison has fixed and flipped over properties, including residential and commercial properties. She is a licensed real estate broker in Florida. She graduated from Villanova University with a B. She resides in the Miami Beach area with her husband and dog.
I have never flipped a home before but I am wanting to start doing this. Is it possible to get a hard money loan as a first time flipper? Thanks for your comment. Check out our real estate investing section for more articles on finding properties to flip , how to start a house flipping business and more. All the best, Allison. Because hard money generally needs to be for business purposes for the loan to get approved.
Very thoughtful and researched article. The marketplace is littered with Hard Money Lenders — so the choices and options people have now are limitless. Yes, there are so many hard money lenders to choose from these days. You can go with a local lender, or a nationwide online lender. I question the recent hard money loan processing. I am self-employed as a truck driver. I also drive and my own taxicab. Loans can broadly be divided into two categories: With a secured loan, the lender will insist on some sort of security against the money you borrow, often a house or car.
If you default on the payments, the bank or building society can then sell the asset to clear the debt. You can usually borrow large amounts with a secured loan, and at a lower rate of interest.
Plus, you can pay back the debt over a long time period, perhaps ten or 15 years. However, secured loans are more risky than unsecured loans because you could lose your collateral if you cannot clear the debt. You should therefore think very carefully - and consider other options - before taking out a secured loan. The interest rate is usually fixed and you pay back the debt over a set term, normally one, three or five years. Personal loans can therefore help you to budget because you know at the outset the full cost of your borrowings and how long they will take to clear.
If you have run up other debts at high rates of interest, a personal loan can be a good way to manage your borrowings and bring down the cost. If you also cut up the store card, you would not be tempted to go on a spreading spree and add to your debt burden! Interest rates on personal loans vary across the market, but as a rough rule of thumb, the more you borrow, the lower the rate. The size of the loan will to some extent determine the term of the loan. You also have to consider the cost implications of the loan term as the longer the term, the lower the monthly payments — but the higher the total cost.
The interest rates on personal loans depend partly on the loan amount and term. But lenders also assess your credit worthiness, usually by looking at your credit file. The lowest rates are reserved for the best customers — that is, borrowers with a spotless credit record. If you are judged likely to default on the loan because of a poor credit history, you will be charged a higher rate of interest or your application will be turned down.
In other words, there is no guarantee that you will qualify for the advertised rates. You can pay off your debt before the end of the loan term if you come into some cash. But watch out for early repayment fees. Many lenders levy a penalty for early repayment, which could wipe out any potential interest savings.
Some lenders also charge arrangement fees for personal loans, which you should factor into your cost calculations. PPI is intended to cover the loan payments if you cannot work, perhaps if you lose your job or fall ill — and it can be useful. You should also shop around for the best price and not automatically accept the deal on offer from your lender.
Simply because we compare and match you to over 33 loans and can help you understand how the lending company will view you and your application before you apply, meaning you are more likely to get accepted for a loan first time. We want to show you loans from as many lenders as possible, so that you can choose the one that suits you best.
You can find out more about how we work here. For unsecured loans also known as personal loans, where someone simply borrows money and commits to paying it back month by month when someone clicks on a loan, applies for a loan or enquires about a loan through MoneySuperMarket, we usually get paid a fee by the loan company. Which one of those options happens depends on the loan company.
