Your home is likely to be your biggest asset, and over time, as you pay off your mortgage, you build up equity. Home equity is the difference between the current value of your home and the amount you owe on your mortgage. The good news is that you can leverage this equity to access cash for a variety of purposes, from home improvements to debt consolidation.
1. Home Equity Loan A home equity loan is a lump sum loan that allows you to borrow against the equity in your home. The loan is secured by your home, and you can use the money for any purpose, such as home renovations, debt consolidation, or education expenses. Home equity loans usually have fixed interest rates and a set repayment schedule, which makes them a predictable and stable option for borrowing money.
2. Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
A HELOC is a revolving line of credit that is secured by your home. It works like a credit card, and you can borrow as much as you need up to the credit limit. You can use the money for any purpose, and you only pay interest on the amount you borrow. HELOCs usually have variable interest rates, which means that the interest rate can go up or down depending on market conditions.
