Line of Credit                                                                                                                             

A line of credit or HELOC usually has a floating interest rate tied to the Prime Rate and allows you to take equity out of a property. You incur interest costs only on the money taken out with a line of credit. It can be a good choice if your needs are expected to be episodic.  An interest only Line of Credit will lower your payment. For difficult to verify income, a stated income Line of Credit is available. You incur interest costs only on the money used. A Line of Credit with no closing costs is available as well.

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

Common uses of a Line Of Credit

  • Debt Consolidation 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 line of credit 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.
