LendingTree made it quick and easy to get me the best rate on a unsecured loan. The rate I received was almost half of what I would have got if going to the lender directly. That ...

What is LendingTree?

LendingTree is an online company that matches you with its extensive network of lenders to provide multiple options for a loan based on your financial situation. Shop for home loans, personal loans, credit cards, insurance, debt relief, auto loans, business loans, debt consolidation, credit repair and more. After receiving loan offers, shoppers can compare loans side by side or contact loan officers to negotiate rates. Personal loan amounts range from $1,000 to $50,000, and certain lenders might be able to fund the loan in as little as 48 hours.

Sign up for a free LendingTree account to check your credit score. The company also suggests ways to improve your credit score and informs you of loans that can beat your current rates. LendingTree also has various types of loan calculators to help you figure out your options for mortgages, whether you should rent or buy and how to deal with other financial situations.

How does LendingTree work?

LendingTree matches you with up to five loan offers within five minutes. Its website helps you shop for a wide range of financial services, including those related to:

  • Mortgage loans
  • Personal loans
  • Business loans
  • Bank accounts
  • Credit cards
  • Student loans
  • Auto loans

After answering a series of brief questions, you get matched with a list of lenders. Typically, you can apply online, directly with the lender, through links LendingTree provides.

LendingTree's refinancing options let you compare lenders and rates available in your area. Each lender has different requirements for application, and you should have personal financial information like income, debts and assets ready when applying.

LendingTree rates

LendingTree’s service is free. Personal loan rates from LendingTree partners differ based on the lender. The lender will charge a rate based on your credit score — for example, a personal loan from Citizens Bank has a rate between 6.49% and 19.49% APR as of publishing.

Borrowers can save .5% with automatic payments.

Some of LendingTree's partners offer fast application processing, which means you might qualify for funding within 48 hours of approval.
Is LendingTree a bank?
LendingTree is not a bank. The company partners with banks to provide loan offers to shoppers.
Does LendingTree do personal loans?

Does LendingTree offer home equity loans?
LendingTree lets shoppers compare options for home equity loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOC). You can also shop by home type, such as multifamily, single-family, townhouse, condo or manufactured.
Does LendingTree do USDA loans?
Yes, LendingTree partners with lenders that offer USDA loans.

Is LendingTree legit?

Yes. LendingTree offers a free loan comparison service that saves potential borrowers time and effort as they research lenders. It offers a wide array of services and loan types, all of which are displayed on one website for convenient shopping. If you need a loan, LendingTree can help you quickly compare offers and find the best fit for your situation.

A reputable company, they do make it possible for more than one Lenders to give a quote for rates. But the calls can become extensive and bothersome. We ended up using a Lender not arranged by them. We did so because the Lender we chose was the most responsible and had the best rates and conditions of the mortgage companies.

    They are a good company agency that’s helpful with the loans experience that you did not know and they sure will be quite the right information. It seems like they advertise you to get the right help and the right source communication so you have the right information to get all the seed loan you’re looking for. It’s a good agency to help you with your credit and make sure you are with the right loan agency.

    The mortgage brokers are exceptional. They do everything that they can to ensure that you get the mortgage you want at the lowest rate. I am dealing with a mortgage broker, Patrick, who is in constant contact with me regarding my mortgage application.

    Clint ** helped me to refinance my car loan. He was very patient with my never-ending questions and was always professional and helpful. He was not pushy or salesy in any way. I would definitely recommend their services for your financial needs.

    I found the right mortgage lender using LendingTree. I will go to them in the future before I search for a company on my own. Perfect place to shop, compare rates and speak to potential Lenders. Both were legit with excellent ratings. Two out of the three companies contacted me within hours based to start the preapproval process. Great company.

    I just responded to an unsolicited pop-up from LendingTree. I was curious about the current refinance mortgage rates. After answering their questions and hitting "submit", my phone started blowing up, even before LendingTree responded with their 5 best offers. I did not see on LendingTree's page anywhere where they revealed that they would share my info, but I have probably, over the last three days, blocked over 100 phone numbers on my phone and I am still getting calls and emails. These calls are originating all over the United States. I am also getting text messages, asking when a "good time to have a convo about my mortgage needs". Beware. Avoid the LendingTree trap.

    I was trying to document a negative experience with one of the lenders on LendingTree. However, when I post the review on their website, it gets rejected every time. I have followed the exact guidelines for posting reviews.

    Blowing my phone up!! Just wanted little info and regret giving my email and cell!! Don't give yours! I have had no less than 10 calls in 2 hours from putting my cell in the LendingTree website when getting loan info. I will not use Lending Tree for any loans... they obviously sell your info!!

    Excellent credit score and moderate/high income. Rate approved from PenFed 2.89% for 40k vs 5.6% as proposed from Lending Tree. Understood that this is not their loan offering, but the fact that they can not pull together competitive offers (low 3% for Chase offer) shows that this is likely an enterprise that functions largely off of advertising connections. Essentially it is useless. Disappointed I wasted a credit check on this.

    I used Lending Tree to identify possible mortgage refinance companies. In this respect the companies that were supplied were valid mortgage banking organizations. What I have issue with Lending Tree is their privacy policies. I don't know the details since we rarely read, in detail, the fine print but when I signed up in less than a day my email spam increased 400% and my telemarketing calls increased 500%; these volumes cannot be coincidental and over 95% of the spam was not mortgage related. I can't say it's totally on Lending Tree but if it occurred from the companies they promote/partner with then they should also be responsible for them. They're already making money from the bank that I will refinance with and if they're making money from selling my information that's not good business, in my opinion, as now I am letting people know what happened; coincidence or not.
