LendingTree is an online resource that helps customers who are searching for loan options that fit their needs and spending habits. Founded in 1996, the LendingTree website went live in 1998, and the site is designed to simplify looking for an appropriate lending package. From credit cards to home equity loans, LendingTree covers all kinds of financing questions. Customers can compare rates, use calculator tools and submit requests for loan information from financial institutions across the country.

LendingTree is based in Charlotte, N.C., and is a member of the Tree.com family of websites.

For customers looking to compare interest rates, payment terms and other aspects of different types of loans, they can complete one form that includes their individual information and specific requests.
