Video: What is the difference between secured and unsecured debt?

A secured debt is a debt that is tied to an asset that's considered collateral for the debt. For example, a mortgage or on a piece of real estate. With an unsecured debt, the lender does not have any collateral for the debt. The most common example of an unsecured debt is a credit card.
