A home equity line of credit, or HELOC, is a loan that you can take out from the bank based on the equity you have in your property. It’s a versatile financial tool that can be used in many different ways to create value. In simple terms, equity is the difference between the value of your home and the amount you owe on it.
For example, if your home is worth $100,000 and you have $20,000 of equity and owe $80,000, you can access 50% to 100% of that equity to use for various purposes. Many people use HELOCs to finance their first rental property, home renovations, or even to refinance their existing mortgage after making improvements to their home.
Renovating your home can increase its value, which can lead to a higher appraisal value when you refinance. Buying a rental property using a HELOC can be a great way to generate additional income, as you can use the equity in your primary home to invest in real estate and create wealth for your family.
