Consolidate Debts

If you are having debt problems, you may be able to find a way to fix your situation by using your home equity for consolidating your debt. Being able to understand how you can use your home’s equity to consolidate debt can help you take control of your finances and manage it better.

What is Home Equity

Your home’s equity is the principal of your home mortgage that has been paid in addition to the value of your home as it appreciates. In order to find out how much your home’s equity is, all you need to do is to take the amount of your home’s valuation and deduct the mortgage you owe from that valuation.

How Home Equity Helps Consolidate Debts

If you have a heavy load of debts like car loans, credit card debt, and others, a home equity loan can help you take control of your finances. The problem with these types of debts is that they are unsecured and carry high rates of interest. What that means is that you spend a lot of money every single month just to pay the interest on those debts and not on the principal. Consolidating debt using the home’s equity will allow you to pay less interest and more principal to pay off the debts quicker.

Home Equity Debt Consolidation Options

Should you decide that you would like to use your home’s equity for debt consolidation, there are several options available.

  • HELOC or Home Equity Line of Credit - With a home equity line of credit, you are advanced some money up to the credit limit you have. You can get that money as you need it and have access to it using a debit card, credit card or a checkbook. Usually, the interest rate is adjustable and you only pay interest on the money that you have withdrawn. Home equity line of credit is usually more useful for purposes that require payments over some period of time like college tuition fees or making home improvements.
  • HEL or Home equity loan - A home equity loan is considered by many as a better option for consolidating debt. This type of equity loan involves taking a second mortgage on your home’s equity. You borrow lump sum at a fixed rate of interest and you pay monthly installments on the home equity loan. This type of equity loan id best if you have a situation where money is needed all in one go like when consolidating debts.

How Home Equity is Used For Debt Consolidation

Lenders make use of a formula to find out how much of the equity on your home is available for use as home equity loan. The formula is the valuation of your home less the mortgage that you owe equals your home’s equity. After you have determined that you home’s equity is enough to be used to consolidate your debts, then you can use the home equity loan to pay off all your creditors. It will allow you to save a significant amount of money in interest payments and all your debts will be wrapped up into a single manageable payment.
