A HELOC (home equity line of credit) is an alternative way to borrow. With a HELOC, your home’s equity becomes collateral to provide you with a supply of credit You decide how much credit you need, when you need it, then repay it when you can. There is never a penalty to pay off your balance.
A HELOC is flexible the way a loan isn’t. Once approved, a line of credit can be accessed any time, for any amount up to your limit. With a loan, you need to re-apply every time you want more funds.
HELOCs have low interest rates (as low as Prime Rate +0.50%), making them less costly than credit cards and personal loans.
