Homes values are starting to go up again, which makes it a good time to consider a home equity line of credit.
Before the “Great Recession” of 2008 and 2009, one of the most common and convenient ways homeowners had to finance big-ticket items like vehicles, weddings, home improvements, vacations, etc. was a home equity line of credit, or HELOC.
Does this sound familiar: “Honey, we should (fill in the blank with a home improvement project)…but that’ll cost us thousands.” A home equity line of credit may be just what you’re looking for. And to help you get started, you’ll want to enter our “Drab to Fab” contest for a chance to win $500 towards a room makeover.
