Differences Between a Home Equity Line of Credit and a Home Equity Loan
There are two types of home loans you can apply for: a Home Equity Line of Credit (commonly called a HELOC) or a Home Equity Loan.
Both loans are secured using the value of your home. You are, in essence, converting the equity in your home into cash. Use that cash to make improvements and you could end up increasing the value of your home.
What is a Home Equity Line of Credit?
A Home Equity Line of Credit acts much like a credit card, a revolving line of credit. You draw the amount of money you need, pay it back, and then borrow again. The interest rate is variable.
- If you aren’t sure which renovation you are going to tackle first or if you intend to foot multiple college expenses or vacation expenses, a line of credit is an option to consider.
What is a Home Equity Loan?
With a Home Equity Loan, all the funds are delivered in one, single, lump sum. The loan has a fixed repayment term with a fixed monthly repayment amount and a fixed interest rate.
- If you know exactly how much each renovation is going to cost and you want to keep your monthly payments consistent, this type of home loan is the option to consider.
