You can use the money from a home equity line of credit for any purpose! If you want to add on to your home, remodel your home, make home repairs, buy a boat, or consolidate debt, a HELOC can help provide the funds.
How Does A HELOC Work?
Using the equity you have in your house as collateral, you can borrow money at a low interest rate. Your equity is the value of your home minus the amount you owe on your mortgage. You borrow just the money that you need, and you can repay and borrow on your HELOC again and again during the draw period. After the draw period is done, the HELOC enters a repayment period so you have an extended time to pay off the amount.
HELOCs Are For Anything!
Home Equity Lines of Credit can be used for any purpose. Because the interest rate is often lower than other types of loans, many people choose to use them for large purchases, education expenses, or home renovations. Since you can choose how much of it to use as you go, a HELOC can also make a great emergency funding option.
