A loan designed to meet Your needs
A home equity line of credit (HELOC), is a line of credit that is secured by the equity in your home. Similar to credit cards, HELOCs consist of revolving credit lines that allow you as the borrower to continue to access your available credit line after you've made payments towards your outstanding balance. Borrowers are given a draw period which is the period of time that the borrower can access funds from the available credit line. After the draw period ends, the borrower is no longer given access to withdraw funds from the line of credit and the repayment period begins. HELOC loan terms are flexible and include variable and fixed rate options. Given that the equity in your home is used as collateral, a HELOC can provide the benefit of receiving a lower interest rate than other loan products. Depending on your situation, the interest paid on HELOC's may also be tax deductible. A consultation with your tax advisor is recommended.
In order to qualify for a HELOC, the amount you owe on your mortgage must be fairly lower than the estimated value of your home. The difference between these two factors is used to determine the equity which is used as collateral for the line of credit. With Leverage Lending, you can access up to 90% of your home’s equity.
