Home equity loans offer a variety of benefits that other loans can’t match, with advantages that include:
- Competitive fixed rates
- Secured by the equity in your home
- Loan amount is based upon a percentage of your LTV (loan-to-value) for qualified borrowers
- Distributed in one lump sum
- Payment options with a variety of terms
- Interest may be tax deductible (consult your tax advisor)
Tap into your home equity to consolidate debt and save on interest
One of the primary benefits of home equity loans is their flexibility to pay off revolving debts, like credit cards, student loans or other loan debt. Borrowers can consolidate all high-interest debt into a simple lower monthly payment. This allows borrowers
to map out a payment system and identify an end date to pay off their loan.
The best home equity loans offer competitive interest rates, which are generally lower than credit card interest. Over time, borrowers save thousands of dollars in interest charges over the term of their loan. And in many cases, the interest you pay may
be tax deductible.*
