    Home Equity Loan Benefits

    Home equity loans provide an easy source of cash. Although higher than a first mortgage, the interest rate on a home equity loan is typically much lower than credit card rates. As such, the number one reason consumers borrow against the value of their homes via a fixed-rate home equity loan is to pay off credit card balances.

    Should You Tap Your Home’s Equity?

    Conduct a careful review of your financial situation before you borrow against your home. A home equity loan can be a valuable tool for responsible borrowers. Your home’s equity can help cover the cost of a single, large purchase, such as a new roof on your home or an unexpected medical bill.
