HELOC

$155

A HELOC, which stands for Home Equity Line of Credit, is a loan that allows you to borrow against the equity you have built up in your home. It works similarly to a credit card in that you are given a credit limit and you can borrow money up to that limit, repay it, and then borrow again. There are two main phases to a HELOC:

  • Draw period: This is the initial period, typically 10 years, where you can borrow money from the HELOC. You only pay interest on the amount you borrow during this time.

  • Repayment period: After the draw period ends, you enter the repayment period, which typically lasts 20 years. During this time, you will repay the principal amount you borrowed plus interest.

HELOCs are a good option for people who need access to cash for things like home improvements, college tuition, or debt consolidation. However, it's important to remember that a HELOC is a loan secured by your home, so if you don't make your payments, the lender could foreclose on your home.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about HELOCs:

  • The interest rate on a HELOC is variable, which means it can go up or down over time.

  • There may be fees associated with getting a HELOC, such as origination fees and annual fees.

  • You will need to have good credit in order to qualify for a HELOC.

If you're considering a HELOC, it's important to shop around and compare rates from different lenders. You should also carefully consider how much money you need and how you will use the funds.
