Home Equity Line                                                                                                                             

A home equity line has an interest rate tied to the Prime Rate and allows you to take home equity out of a property. You incur interest costs only on the home equity taken out. An interest only Home Equity Line will lower your payment. For difficult to verify income, a stated income Home Equity Line is available. A Home Equity Line with no closing costs is available as well.

A major advantage of the home equity line is that your interest costs are generally tax deductible. A comparison between the after tax costs of the home equity line 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 the home equity in your home but understand that the interest rate will be somewhat higher if your home equity line is over 90%(combined first trust and home equity line) of the value of the property. We will allow up to a 50% home equity line Debt to Income ratio (DTI) with good credit. Please see the link below for more information on qualification ratios.

Common uses of a Home Equity Line

  • Debt Consolidation Home Equity Line. If your other debt is too much you may dramatically reduce your monthly payments. See the calculator below for an idea of how much you could save.

  • Finance a Major Purchase. If a new car or boat is in your future, you may want to compare payments.

  • Children's Education. Many people find a home equity line the most logical way to pay for their children's education. Exactly what I did when my son went to college and I saved a lot of money compared to any other option.

  • Property Purchase. If you are considering either an investment in income producing real estate or a vacation home, it may make more sense to unlock the equity in your home rather than move the cash from other investments which are doing well for you. Please see my pages on Investment Property or Vacation Homes for more information.
