Home Equity Line of Credit
A home equity line of credit or HELOC has a floating interest rate tied to the Prime Rate and allows you to take home equity out of a property. Of course, you incur interest costs only on the home equity taken out. A Home equity line of credit can be a good choice if your needs are expected to be episodic.
An advantage of the home equity line of credit is that your interest costs are usually tax deductible. A comparison between the after tax costs of the home equity line of credit and any consumer loan should be done before any major purchase. Please give me a call if you need help with the calculation.
We can lend up to 100% of your home equity but understand that the interest rate will be somewhat higher if your home equity line of credit 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 home equity line of credit qualification ratios.
