We love HELOCs and here's why:
A home equity line of credit (HELOC) is a line of credit tied to the equity you've earned in your home. As the equity in your home grows, so does the amount you can borrow. HELOCs offer distinct advantages over a personal loan or a credit card including lower interest rates, the ability to cover larger dollar expenses, and low monthly payments during your draw period which gives you great spending potential.
