There arefew if any restrictions on a home equity loan because inessence you're using your own money. With housing marketsbooming over the last several years, and no definitive endin sight, the higher prices we find attached to our homeshas sent the equity soaring too. It's no longer necessary togamble in the stock market if you're looking for largereturns: just own a house, and then use a home equity loanto fund your particular needs.

A home equity loan can offer many attractive features, butthere are a few things to be keep in mind. Be aware that inan inflated market, your home's value could at some pointtake a dive and you find yourself in a situation where yourloan exceeds your home's worth, particularly if you've takenadvantage of one of the 100-125% offers you see so oftenthese days. Just be aware that it is never a good idea touse all your appraised equity unless absolutely necessary.Also, try and go with the home equity loan that costs theleast. If you're going to tack on several thousand dollarsin fees, then it could really not be worth it. Peoplesometimes get blinded by the prospect of easy cash, and paythese fees without thinking.
