Home Equity Line of Credit                                                                                                                             

A home equity line of credit or HELOC 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 with your home equity line of credit. A home equity line of credit is a good choice if your needs are expected to be episodic.  An interest only Home Equity Line of Credit will lower your payment. For difficult to verify income, a stated income Home Equity Line of Credit is available.  A home equity line of credit with no closing costs is available. A home equity line of credit will often close quickly. Email Home Equity Line of Credit questions

An advantage of the home equity line of credit is that interest costs are generally 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.

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 of credit is over 90%(combined first 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 ratios.

Common uses of a Home Equity Line

  • Debt Consolidation Home Equity Line of Credit. 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 HELOC the best way to pay for their children's education. Exactly what I did when my son went to college and I saved money compared to other options.

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