How A HELOC Can Better Help You With Your Home Improvements
by: Joseph Kenny
Making improvements to your home can be both fulfilling and yet expensive. By doing the project right, it can add many thousands of dollars to the value of your home. Getting the money, however and knowing the best and least expensive way to do it, can be more than a little confusing. One type of mortgage - a home equity line of credit, or HELOC, however, may be just the tool you need to get access to the equity in your home.
What Is A HELOC?
A HELOC is actually a type of second mortgage. An account is opened for you that allows you to get the cash you need. The equity you have in your home, and how much you apply for determine the amount of cash available. The lender will look at your credit report and ability to pay back the mortgage in order to give you a credit limit. Access to the cash is usually given by a credit card or checking account.
How Does It Work?
Instead of giving you the cash of the HELOC in one lump sum, it is put into your account and you are able to draw it out as you need it. There is generally a minimum draw that will need to be made, and a period established during which you can make the draws. This period can be up to about 11 years.
You have the choice about how much and when you want to draw out the money you need for your home improvement projects. If you choose not to use all of it, then that is up to you.
