home equity | loans
You have already bought a home or real estate and you need cash flow. Home equity loans are great depending if you plan to stay in your home for a good while. 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 value for your home and it is less that what you owe it will be difficult to sell and balance cured. In a sense this would be considered like a short sale. 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. You must be wise on how you use this money. Also, you incur another monthly bill. To qualify a 620 score or better is typically needed, your debt to income ratio will be calculated Loan to Value (LTV) is 80 percent or 20 percent equity in your home. A current appraisal will let you know where you stand. This is pretty much same scenario as for qualifying for an initial loan with fees involved.
Typically the interest rates are lower and payments never change on these type of loans. The risky part that if you do not continue to make your payments on this loan your home can be foreclosed on. Personally, I prefer to start with, your 1st mortgage lender and see what deal they can provide for you. If there are any questions whatsoever, please shop around talk to several lender's for terms and conditions. Credit Unions seem to be great and all you have to do is open a 5.00 account and become a member. This should give you access to utilize the many services they offer to all customers.
