A home equity line of credit (HELOC) is a form of revolving credit similar to a credit card. A HELOC allows homeowners to borrow against the equity they've built up in their homes. Equity is the difference between the current market value of your home and the outstanding balance on your mortgage. With a HELOC, you can access funds as needed up to a predetermined credit limit.
Unlike a traditional loan, where you receive a lump sum upfront, a HELOC provides you with a line of credit that you can draw from as needed during a specified draw period, typically ten years. During this draw period, you make interest only payments on the amount you have utilized.
Once the draw period ends, you enter the repayment period, during which you can no longer borrow funds, and you must repay the outstanding balance. Repayment periods typically last 10 to 20 years, during which you'll make regular payments that include both principal and interest.
A HELOC is a versatile financial tool that empowers homeowners to leverage the equity in their homes to achieve their goals. Whether you're looking to renovate your home, consolidate debt, fund education expenses, or seize investment opportunities, a HELOC offers flexibility, convenience, and potential cost savings.
