Home Equity Line of Credit
A Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC) is a line of credit that uses the equity you have in your home as collateral. The amount of credit available to you is dependent on the equity in your home. Because HELOCs are secured by a real estate asset, they tend to have higher credit limits and much better interest rates than credit cards or personal loans. While HELOCs usually have variable interest rates, there are some fixed-rate options available. Other features of a HELOC Include:
- Payments are interest only, and will fluctuate in amount depending on the balance.
- The line of credit is revolving. Revolving means that you can borrow the balance up, and pay the balance down at-will within the limits of the loan agreement.
- It is possible and quite common for customers to have both a mortgage and a HELOC secured by the same piece of real estate.
- If you default on a HELOC, the mortgage agreement gives the lender the right to take back the property.
