How Does a Home Equity Loan Work?

Borrow Money Against Your Home

A home equity loan allows you to essentially borrow the money you’ve already invested in your home. These loans allow you to receive a large sum of money quickly without being crippled by high-interest rates.

Home equity loan rates have also traditionally been lower than non-secured loans and credit cards, making them a more affordable option. Mortgage interest may also be tax-deductible.

What to Use Home Equity For

Home Equity loans can be used for many things, including:

  • Paying off debt
  • Renovating your home
  • Financing your teen’s college
  • And more!
