Home Equity Loans vs. HELOC Loans*

Home equity is your property’s market value minus the amount you owe on any liens, such as your mortgage. Most homeowners first gain equity by putting a down payment on their property. Your equity fluctuates over time as you make monthly mortgage payments and your home’s market value changes. Renovations and repairs to your home or changes to property values in your community may also impact your home equity. You can use the equity in your home to borrow money with advantages such as higher loan amounts, lower interest rates, and even tax benefits.

What is a Home Equity Loan?

A home equity loan, also known as a second mortgage, is a debt secured by your home. Generally, lenders will let you borrow no more than 80% of the equity you have put into your home. With this type of loan, the borrowed funds are available at the beginning of the contract and have a fixed interest rate, a set repayment term, and fixed monthly payments.

What exactly is a HELOC Loan?

A home equity line of credit, also called a HELOC loan, is also secured by your home. A homeowner applies for an open line of credit and then can borrow up to a fixed amount on an as-needed basis. The borrower only pays the interest on the amount borrowed. The interest rate can fluctuate over the course of the open line of credit. Typically, a HELOC will remain open for a set term, perhaps 10 years. When the draw period ends, the loan is amortized, and the borrower begins making fixed monthly payments for a set term.
