Helping your Children With Homeowner Loans

By: Bruce Stander

As a devoted parent or guardian, you want to help your children or dependents make their dreams come true. If those aspirations require money that your offspring do not currently have, you may want to consider taking out homeowner loans to help them achieve their aspirations.

Homeowner loans (secured loans leveraged against the value of your residence or another property owned by you) are relatively fast and easy to get if you have an excellent credit history. And you can use them for a variety of purposes, such as:

University - The cost of tuition has risen considerably in the past generations. By taking out homeowner loans, you can help the student in your life pay for an education.

First Home - Did your son or daughter recently marry? If so, you may wish to help him or her (and his or her new family) out by offering them money that you've gotten as a result of your homeowner loans. That way, they can purchase a home for themselves using your gift as a down payment.

Upgrades or Repairs - If your child has purchased a home that needs upgrades or repairs, you could secure homeowner loans to assist him or her in making updates or remodeling.

Medical Bills - Sometimes, emergencies occur, and insurance doesn't always cover treatments at a 100% level. If your offspring has mounting bills as a result of a medical emergency and you're concerned that he or she cannot get out of debt within a reasonable amount of time, you may want to offer money as a personal gift or loan.

One important point to remember, though, is that you must make it clear to your recipient whether you are giving the cash you've obtained from homeowner loans as a gift or a loan. Make up a contract if you expect to be repaid; otherwise, you could be in for a rocky road should your child "forget" he or she owes you the money.
