Frequently Asked Questions

What Kinds of Home Equity Loans are Available?


There are three types of mortgage loans that you can use to tap into your home equity. 

Cash out Mortgage: If you have a mortgage and want to refinance into a lower rate, or extend the payment period and lower your monthly payments and also take out additional money, then a cash-out mortgage is a great option. One popular reason to take a cash-out mortgage is consolidate your mortgage and credit card debt into one monthly payment.

Home Equity Loan: If you built up equity through paying off your mortgage or rising home prices, you can take out a mortgage (or second mortgage if you already have one). A HEL allows you to tap into you home for many reasons including debt consolidation and home improvements.

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC): Do you need money over an extended period of time? Instead of taking a traditional installment payment mortgage, consider an HELOC, which is a revolving line of credit. Similar to a credit card, it allows you to borrow money over time, pay it back, and take out up to your line of credit. A HELOC has variable payments, so you need to budget carefully.
