What is a Home Equity Loan?
Home equity is the difference between the fair market value of a property and the balance of the mortgage owed against it. Home equity loans allow homeowners to access their equity in a lump sum of cash, which may be used for a variety of purposes, and is repaid in monthly installments. Home equity loans usually have fixed interest rates and are fully amortized while a home equity line of credit (HELOC) provides a line of credit that allows you to draw funds up to your maximum credit line.
