Compare ways to access your home equity.
Home equity is the difference between your home’s market value and the amount you owe on your mortgage.
Home equity line of credit
A home equity line of credit (HELOC) can be useful if you’re planning a major project with multiple expenses or if you want ongoing access to funds. HELOCs feature flexible repayment options and their rates are typically lower than credit cards.
Home equity loan
A home equity loan is worth considering if you have a large, one-time expense, or if you want to consolidate debt and focus on paying it off. It offers fixed rates and a steady repayment schedule for the life of the loan.
A Smart Refinance lets you tap into your home’s equity for major purchases, debt consolidation and other one-time needs. It may also help you save money with its no-cost closing option.
A cash-out refinance lets you access the equity in your home and get cash at closing. It’s a great way to get new mortgage terms and borrow funds for one-time expenses at the same time.
