Home Equity Loans: a Low Rate Option in Times of Need

By: Johns Tiel

If in times of need of big amounts of money you are ready to pledge collateral with the lender and are ready to utilize the equity vested in your home, you can easily get money for your needs. With Home Equity Loans, the money from your home's equity is in your hands and you can borrow it and use it as you like.

We build assets by saving money all our lives and compromising with our desires and luxuries. We do this so that these assets, like our home can provide us a support as a shelter and also in times when we are facing a need of money. We can utilize the equity that the home holds in the market and borrow money to fulfill our needs like debt consolidation, home improvement, car purchase, vacation trips, wedding expenses, educational funding etc.

These loans are available to the borrowers according to the equity of the home in a range of ?5000-?75000 and even more. The money is to be repaid in a term of 5-25 years. The rate of interest for these loans is very low due to attachment of the equity of the home with the loan.

Another form of these loans called the home equity line of credit or the HELOC is also available to the borrowers. This line of credit is more like a credit card which can be encashed whenever there is a need of money for the borrower. The person can withdraw money from the lender on the basis of equity of the home whenever he need as long as the draw period of the line of credit is on. In between the borrower has to keep paying small amounts to the lender as repayment installments.

These options are available to bad credit borrowers as well. Low rates can be obtained due to attachment of collateral. So now borrowers can get money easily for their needs without any risk as repayment too is easy. Problems cease to create a nuisance for the borrowers.
