Home Equity Line of Credit

Easy Applications for Home Equity Lines of Credit

When it comes to A home equity line of credit, qualifying isn’t always easy. Your chances of being approved for a line of credit are closely linked to your credit score. If your score is less than perfect, you’ve had a past bankruptcy or consumer proposal, it may be difficult to get a bank’s approval. Our team of experienced mortgage brokers have access to alternative lenders and will make it easier to get your home loan approved.

The Benefits of an Equity Credit Line

First, it’s important to note that your bank offers two different types of credit lines – unsecured and secured. An equity credit line is a secured line of credit. In either case, your interest rate can be variable or fixed term

With a HELOC your home will be used as collateral and this is likely to help you achieve a lower interest rate than you would get if you applied for an unsecured loan or line of credit. A lower interest rate can also mean lower monthly payments. Lower interest rates, in addition to ease of use, are among the top benefits of a secured credit line. 

Second, flexibility is an important selling point. Home equity credit lines come with terms and conditions that are similar to a credit card agreement. You can even link your HELOC to your bank account for monitoring and convenience. The best part is, this form of revolving credit comes with an interest rate that most credit card companies cannot beat.

How Does a Home Equity Credit Line Work?

Home equity credit lines may be a bit harder to qualify for, especially in today’s lending economy. If approved, you’ll be advanced a credit limit just like any bank loan or credit card. You’ll have a limit and you’ll be able to draw funds up to that limit as you need to. You’ll have a minimum monthly payment arrangement to meet. As you pay down the balance you can use it again.

The best part about a home equity line of credit is that you only pay what you owe as well as only paying the monthly interest that has built up. You can pay as much as you want towards the principal owing at any time, you have the flexibility to make minimum payments or pay a large lump sum. Reducing the amount of interest that you pay overall can also help you become free of debt much faster.
