Home Equity Line of Credit
A Home Equity Line of Credit Mortgage works similar to a credit card. You have a revolving line of credit to draw against. As you make your payments, those funds become available again. The main advantage is you can borrow again whenever you need to without submitting another application. Additionally, there are no prepayment penalties on a Home Equity Line of Credit Mortgage. Features include:
  • Limits between $10,000 and $300,000
  • Loans up to 90% of the property value less any outstanding first mortgage balance
  • Property value is determined by an appraisal
For Example:
