How To Tap In To Your Home Equity


With today's relatively low interest rates and climbingproperty values, many consumers are considering taping intotheir home equity to finance everything from homeimprovement projects to debt consolidation.

Secured home loans, also called home equity loans, areloans backed by the borrower's equity in their property.Equity is the difference between your home's appraisedvalue and the balance on your mortgage.

When a homeowner takes out a secured home loan, theypromise to repay the lender and sign a contract that makestheir home the collateral for the loan. If the borrowerdoes not repay the loan as agreed, the lender has the rightto foreclose on the home. Generally, loans are repaid witha monthly payment over a fixed term.

As interest rates and loan terms may vary widely dependingon your credit score, your home equity, and the amount ofthe loan, it is important to compare several differentlenders to ensure you are getting the best loan for yoursituation.

There are many advantages to secured home loans. Homeequity loans generally have lower interest rates thanunsecured loans. In addition, there are many differenttypes of secured home loans to fit your needs.

When considering using your home as a security instrumentto obtain a loan, it is important to consider the amountyou can afford monthly. Although loans can be used forvirtually anything, if you are going to use the money tomake large purchase, make sure you are buying somethingthat will outlast the life of the loan.

Remember, if you do not repay the loan as agreed, you maylose your home. While it may be smart to tap into equityfor home improvement projects that will increase yourproperty value, it may be foolish to put your home on theline for that dream vacation.
