When you take out a traditional loan, you typically work with a third-party vendor. However, with a Buy Here, Pay Here dealer, everything is done in one place.
Instead of reaching out to an outside bank or credit union, the dealership is financing your loan. It has a certain set of advantages to it—mainly, that you can finance in a more streamlined way. BHPH financing won’t involve a check of your credit history, either, a factor that shoppers with no credit or less-than-perfect credit often find appealing.
On the flip side, BHPH financing usually involves higher interest rates. Since a credit check never comes into the picture, high rates act as something of a collateral for the dealer (lender). You may also have restrictions on your shopping based on what the dealer is willing to finance. You may find fewer options with BHPH financing.
Every shopper needs to decide what makes the most sense in their case. Buy Here, Pay Here financing is a popular option among drivers with less-than-ideal credit histories. However, we think many shoppers would benefit by boosting their scores as much as possible and then applying for traditional financing.
