Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOC)
A home equity loan is a powerful tool for homeowners. It allows you to borrow money against the equity in your home which can be used for any project or purchase: repairs or upgrades, college tuition, or to pay off high-interest debt. Often, the interest rates on home equity loans are lower than credit cards, which makes it easier on your bottom line.
The amount of a home equity loan is based on how much equity – the difference between the value of the home and how much is owed on the mortgage(s) – the homeowner has, and current credit qualifications. The longer a mortgage is paid down and the more a home appreciates in value, the more equity is built which can equate to a larger loan amount.
