Using a Home Equity Loan for Debt Consolidation

Have you considered this popular option?

The largest debt you will face as a homeowner is your mortgage.  With the right approvals, you can borrow against the equity of your home with a home equity loan.

What is a Home Equity Loan?

This type of loan is slightly different to a home equity line of credit (HELOC), which is a line of revolving credit with an adjustable interest rate. A home equity loan is a one-time lump-sum loan.  Lenders are generally comfortable adding to your current low mortgage rate because they are safeguarded by the fact that your loan is secured against your home.
