Your Home Equity Credit Lines by:Troy Francis

Do you need to borrow money? Home equity lines may be one source of credit. Home equity credit lines may provide you with large amounts of cash at a low interest rate and they may provide you with certain tax advantages with other loans.

Home equity lines of credit require you to use your home as collateral for the loan. This may put your home at risk if you are late or cannot make your monthly payments. Those loans with a large final (balloon) payment may lead you to borrow more money to pay off this credit line, or they may put your home in jeopardy if you cannot qualify for other refinancing in Ashburn. If you sell your home, most plans require you to pay off your credit line at the time of closing. In addition, because home equity loans give you relatively easy access to cash, you might find you borrow money more often.

Remember too, there are other ways to borrow money from a lender. For example, you may want to explore second mortgage installment loans. Although these plans also place an additional mortgage on your home, second mortgage money usually is loaned in a lump sum, rather than in a series of advances made available by writing checks on debts. Also, second mortgages usually have fixed interest rates and fixed payment amounts.

You also may want to explore borrowing from credit lines that do not use your home as collateral. These credit lines may be a better option for you and your situation. These are available with your credit cards or with unsecured credit lines that let you write checks as you need the money. In addition, you may want to ask about loans for specific items, such as tuition, cars, and those nasty credit cards. Either way, home equity lines can be useful if done the right way.
