FAQ

What’s the difference between a home equity loan and a home equity line of credit (HELOC)?

A home equity loan is paid out in a lump sum, and you’ll start repaying your loan within a month of receiving it. A HELOC is more like an extremely low-interest credit card. When you need money, you can draw upon the account. Until then, you owe nothing and have nothing to pay back. Generally, with a HELOC, you’ll also only be required to pay back 1% of your outstanding balance, so your payments can be lower over time.

Does a home equity loan have the same fees associated with it as a mortgage loan?

The fees associated with a home equity loan may be much lower because they're assessed according to the size of your loan. Generally, you won’t need a full appraisal to get a home equity loan, either.

Do I have to use my home equity loan on my home?

No, you can use the funds for anything from buying an investment property to consolidating your credit card debt.

What documentation will I need to provide?

In addition to information about your employment history, W-2s and pay stubs, bank statements, and information about other outstanding debts like car loans or credit cards, you’ll need to prove that you own the property you’re borrowing against and that it is adequately insured.
