What is a Home Equity Loan?

Home Equity LoansHome equity loans are personal loans that leverage available equity in your home as collateral. They function like any other loan, but benefit from lower interest rates. These types of loans are great for someone who has a projects or an expense coming up and who wants to take advantage of their home’s equity to cover or finance those costs. Your payment is based on the amount that your borrow  and does not change over the term of the loan, allowing you to budget accordingly.

What is a Home Equity Line of Credit?

Unlike a home equity loan, a home equity line of credit is an available line of credit that you can use to pay for purchases in an ongoing capacity. It works by granting a line of credit equivalent to the equity in your home (80% of the appraised value less any mortgages or liens). Each new purchase you charge against it increases the balance, and your monthly payment depends on the outstanding balance. It’s a safer way to pay for large purchases, as opposed to high-interest credit cards.
