A HELOC or home equity line of credit has an interest rate tied to the Prime Rate and allows you to take equity out of a property. Of course, you incur interest costs only on the equity taken out with your HELOC. A HELOC can be a good choice if your needs are expected to be episodic. An interest only HELOC will lower your payment. For difficult to verify income, a stated income HELOC is available. A HELOC with no closing costs is available as well. A home equity line of credit will usually close quickly. Email me with questions on a HELOC
An advantage of the HELOC is that your interest costs are generally tax deductible. A comparison between the after tax costs of the HELOC and any consumer loan should be done before any major purchase.
We can lend up to 100% of the home equity in your home but understand that the interest rate will be somewhat higher if your HELOC is over 90%(combined first trust and home equity line of credit) of the value of the property. We will allow up to a 50% home equity line of credit Debt to Income ratio (DTI) with good credit. Please see the link below for more information on HELOC qualification ratios.
