Debt Consolidation Home Equity Loan

If you have accumulated a number of debts and you own your own home with equity in your property...

Sometimes it makes good financial sense to use the equity in your home to consolidate debt like credit cards, student loans, and medical bills.Depending on your financial goals, you may want to:
Lower your total monthly debt payments
Pay off credit cards with high interest rates
Simplify by consolidating many small debt payments into one
Reduce the interest rate on your high-interest debt
Turn the interest you pay into tax-deductible* interest
There are a three ways you can access the equity in your home to consolidate your debt:
A “cash-out” refinance
A home equity loan
A home equity line of credit
Cash-out RefinanceWhen you refinance to get cash out, you’re refinancing your mortgage to a loan amount more than you currently owe and taking the difference in cash.  Depending on your current interest rate, you may also be able to lower your monthly payment and get cash to pay off other debt at the same time.Home Equity LoanA home equity loan is another loan on your home that taps into your equity. Commonly referred to as a “second mortgage,” a home equity loan allows you to turn your equity into cash without refinancing your first mortgage—and usually in less time than it would take to refinance your first mortgage.Home Equity Line of CreditA home equity line of credit is very similar to a credit card except that it uses your home’s equity as the revolving line of credit. You pay only if and when you use the money. You can get a home equity line of credit in as little as ten days. When you use the equity in your home to consolidate debt, consider cutting up your credit cards and keeping one for emergencies only.  And if you increase your monthly cash flow by consolidating debt, think about using the extra money you now have to save or invest for retirement or to pay down your other debt faster.* Please consult your tax advisor.
