For example, you have already purchased real estate and you need cash flow for whatever reason. Home equity loans are great depending if you plan to stay in your home for at least minimum 3-5 years depending on amount you request. The reason I say that is because when it comes to sell your home, that equity loan has to be paid off and if you get market value when it comes to sell your home and it is less than what you owe it may be difficult to sell and balance cured. In this sense it would be similar to a short sale manner. You would owe more than what the property is worth.
Home equity loans are great for home improvements, kids college, pay off bills, starting a business, consolidating, buying an investment home or new automobile. Please do not misuse this money and must be wise. Also by doing this you incur another monthly bill. To qualify a score of 620 or better is typically required, your debt to income is calculated Loan to Value (LTV) is 80 percent or 20 percent equity must be in your home. A current appraisal will let you know where you stand. This is pretty much the same scenario as qualifying scenario as for qualifying for an initial loan with exception of drawing money out of home. with fees involved.
Generally interest rates varies based on economics in the world, such as oil, politic's, wall street, world crisis and so on. on this type of loan you do not make your payment your home is open to foreclosure. I prefer to start with your original lender for the home equity process. If there are any questions whatsoever, shop around for the best product.
