What does HELOC stand for?
HELOC is short for Home Equity Line of Credit. What is a home equity line of credit? A home equity line of credit, or HELOC, is a mortgage that gives you access to cash based on the value of your home. You can draw from a home equity line of credit and repay all or some of it monthly, somewhat like a credit card. With a HELOC, you borrow against your equity, which is the home’s value minus the amount you owe on the primary mortgage. You can also get a HELOC if you own your home outright, in which case the HELOC is the primary mortgage rather than a second one. When you’re shopping around for a loan, borrowing from the equity in your home will often get you the best rate.
How a HELOC works
Much like a credit card that allows you to borrow against your spending limit as often as needed, a HELOC gives you the flexibility to borrow against your home equity, repay and repeat.
How much can I borrow?
The maximum amount of your home equity line of credit will vary based on the value of your home, what percentage of that value the lender will allow you to borrow against and how much you still owe on your mortgage.
How you pay back a HELOC
A HELOC has two phases of payment:
Draw period: During the draw period, you can borrow from the credit line by check, or transfer. Monthly minimum payments often are interest-only during the draw period, but you can pay principal if you wish. The length of the draw period is 5 years.
Repayment period: During the repayment period, you can no longer borrow against the credit line. Instead, you pay back the loan in monthly installments that include principal and interest. The length of the repayment period is 15 years.
