What Are In-House Financing Car Dealers?

Signing a contract to buy a car

At an in-house finance car dealer you can receive financing directly through the dealership, meaning that you make your payments to them rather than to a bank or other lending institution. Loan approval is still up to the lender, but in most cases you will have a better chance of being approved. Find out more about how in-house financing works before you apply for financing.

What Are the Benefits of In-House Financing?

With in-house financing you can get the car you want quicker and save more over the course of the loan. Other benefits include:

  • Easy pre-approval
  • Flexible lending rates
  • Extended warranties
  • Improved credit score

Many Omaha area drivers are attracted to in-house financing because it is a fast and convenient way to boost their credit rating. Since dealerships can offer in-house options without doing a credit check, this form of financing is often also described as “guaranteed“. The opportunity to receive a loan that is tailored to your budget, and to add additional coverage on the vehicle, are also important factors to consider.

What to Watch Out For

There are a few things that you’ll want to be aware of when applying for a car loan from an in-house financing dealership. Unfortunately, there have been some devious scams associated with in-house financing, so keep an eye out for:

  • A dealership that allows you to leave the lot before the payment term has been agreed upon
  • A dealership that doesn’t report to a credit bureau
  • A dealership that notifies you that you’ll need to pay more than what was in the original agreement
  • A dealership that is manufacturer “approved” is held to a higher standard than a dealership that has the manufacturer’s “approval”
