What is a Home Equity Loan?

Home equity is the amount of your home that you own. You can calculate your home's equity with the following formula:

Home Equity = Current Value of Home - Amount Owed (Mortgage Balance)

Homeowners can borrow a portion of this equity through a Home Equity Loan or Home Equity Line of Credit. 


Home Equity Loan vs. HELOC:

There are two common types of home equity loans: Home Equity Loan and Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).

  • Home Equity Loan: A traditional home equity loan offers fixed interest rates and the full loan amount is received at once. It's an ideal choice if you know exactly how much your project will cost, such as putting in a pool or a home remodel.
  • HELOC: A home equity line of credit functions like a credit card where you're approved for a set dollar amount. Then, you can borrow from this approved line as needed. You only pay interest on what you spend - not your approved amount. Once your repay the balance, you can borrow from the credit line again. HELOCs are the perfect solution if you have several projects to complete, such as debt consolidation, home upgrades, a family vacation, or just want an emergency line of credit for unexpected expenses. 


Perks of Home Equity Loans:

Home equity loans are a major financial benefit of homeownership. They allow you to access funds affordably with convenient repayment terms.

  • Lower Rates: Because home equity loans are secure loans (your home is used as collateral), the interest rates are significantly lower than personal loans or credit cards.
  • Flexible Terms: Longer loan terms (up to 10 years or more) provide more affordable monthly payments as you repay over time.
  • Unlimited Uses: You can use the equity in your home for just about anything: Home makeovers, repairs, debt consolidation, medical bills, higher education costs, family vacations, or events like weddings.
  • Higher Home Values: With home values remaining high, homeowners are able to tap into additional equity to fund all their summer projects.
