Does a Home Equity Line of Credit Make Sense for You?

September 29th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Many homeowners are utilizing the equity they’ve accumulated in their homes to tap into Home Equity Loans or Home Equity Lines of Credit, sometimes referred to as a HELOC. You can use the equity in your home for many different reasons, to name a few:

• With the Home Renovation Tax Credit and the Eco-Energy Rebates, now would be a good time to make those renovations you’ve been thinking about! You would also be adding to your homes’ value, an all around win-win situation

 • If you’ve been feeling the pinch financially and are not feeling completely secure, now would be a good time to come up with a debt consolidation plan. The lower interest rates from the LOC makes payments manageable.

 • If you feel your business could use a little boost now that the economy is starting to recover, and you want to be ready, consider the benefits of the LOC; with it’s flexible terms, you can pay it off quickly when your business is back on sound footing.

 • If you’re generally good with money, a HELOC can provide a place to go for emergency funds from time to time, especially if you know you’re going to be diligent in paying it back.

Home equity is the difference between the current appraised value of your home and the amount you have paid on the first mortgage.

In these days of low interest rates, it doesn’t make sense to be paying credit card or unsecured line of credit charges. Please call Verico Designer Mortgages Inc to find out about the equity in your home and the options available to you.
