Mortgage Line of Credit
A mortgage 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 when you wish. Of course, you incur interest costs only on the money taken out. It can be a good choice if your needs are expected to be episodic. To keep payments low, most mortgage lines of credit have an interest only period followed by a fully amortizing period. Email mortgage line of credit questions
A major advantage of a HELOC is that your interest costs are tax deductible. A comparison between the after tax costs of the HELOC 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 80%(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.
