A Home Equity Line of Credit or HELOC provides homeowners the ability to tap into the equity they’ve built in their homes. You can take advantage of a HELOC on both primary residences and vacation homes. A HELOC establishes a line of credit that can then be used to finance expenses such as home improvement projects, college tuition, or to create a rainy-day financial resource.
Refinancing could allow you to lower your payments and tap into the equity of your home.
