Interest Only HELOC

The Asset Manager Interest Only HELOC is from one of our newest lenders and I am very excited over the potential to manage mortgage debt it will give my clients. The interest only HELOC program, available for purchase or refinance is a Home Equity Line of Credit or HELOC available up to 90% of value, (80% on an investment property). Unlike the traditional HELOC, which is designed to work in addition to a traditional mortgage, the Asset Manager interest only HELOC replaces your mortgage. Email with any questions about the Interest Only HELOC

The Asset Manager interest only HELOC is set up as a 30 year mortgage with a 10 year interest only period with rates tied to the Prime Rate or LIBOR. After the initial 10 year period, any remaining balance is amortized over the remaining 20 years. Mortgage Insurance is not required with this interest only HELOC and no escrow accounts are required. The Asset Manager interest only HELOC gives you three options to manage your mortgage debt.

Option One
Improve Your Cash Flow With Low Monthly Payments
Your payments can be reduced through interest only payments, no mortgage insurance, no escrow account payments or reserves. Lets look at an example.

                            Standard Loan                                                                     Asset Manager HELOC
Loan Amount:     $270,000                                                                                $270,000
Interest Rate:        6.500%                                                                                4.25% HELOC
Required Interest: $1,462.50                                                                              $956.25
Required Principal $244.08                                                                                $0
Required Escrows $250                                                                                      $0
Mortgage Insurance $146.25                                                                              $0

Total Monthly Payment $2,102.83                                                                       $956.25

$1,146.58 less required per month with the Asset Manager!

Option Two
Save on Interest Charges by Paying Off Your Mortgage Early
If you are comfortable with the larger payment associated with a traditional loan, the Asset Manager accelerates your pay off. In the illustration above, if you made the $2,100 payment the loan would be paid off in just over 12 years saving you almost $163,000 in interest charges! 

Option Three
Make Flexible Payments as Circumstances Change
You retain control, pay extra in the months you have the funds available, as in the illustration above, or drop back to the interest only payment when necessary. Also, and this is the really creative part, as you make those extra payments, because this is a true line of credit, those funds are always available to you. If you find an investment opportunity, or have extra expenses in a given month, write a check up to your original loan balance. If your transaction is a refinance, you may want to consider setting up your loan for the max amount as the additional funds do not cost you a dime until you use them. 

Here is another interesting way to use the Asset Manager. Lets take our illustration above with a $270,000 balance at the end of the month. We know that our interest only payment is $956.25. Because the Asset Manager is an account and has a free check writing feature, we could deposit our paycheck into the account and pay our monthly expenses from there rather than a traditional checking account. If our monthly income of $5,000 is deposited in the account and we had $3,000 in expenses that month including our mortgage payment, we would have reduced our mortgage balance to $268,000. Since our payment is based on the balance on the last day of the month, our new payment is now $949.17. In this illustration, if we look at where we are in 5 years the results are stunning. Using the Asset Manager in this fashion, our mortgage balance is $ 213,600. If we had chosen the traditional mortgage, our balance will be $ 251,200. A difference of $ 37,600! Your numbers may be different depending on your specific situation. Please give me a call and I will be happy to run a comparison based on your specific situation. 

The Asset Manager is available as a fully documented or Stated Income loan for borrowers with excellent credit and credit scores above 660. It is available for Owner Occupied, Non Owner Occupied, and Second Homes to a max 90% LTV (80% LTV for investment property).

I have a Power Point presentation available in .pdf format on the details of the Asset Manager. If you would like a copy, please feel free to request it by email. I am sure it will be useful to you.
