If you need some extra cash to make a large purchase, remodel your house, or pay the balance on a high-interest credit card, a HELOC (home equity line of credit) may be just what you're looking for. A HELOC is a kind of revolving credit secured by the equity in your home. This is an open-ended of loan that may be paid down or charged up for the a set length of time, similar to a credit card. The loan interest usually changes monthly

The lender will specify your credit limit (the biggest amount you can borrow) with the HELOC. Your credit status, income, debt and various other financial information will affect your credit limit. So that the lender can ascertain your home' current market value, you will need an appraisal on your property. Your credit limit will be set considering all of your financial information, in addition to a percentage of your home's appraised market value, which is then subtracted from the balance owed on your existing mortgage.
