How much can I borrow from my home equity?
With interest rates at historical lows, it may make sense to consolidate some of your credit card and other personal debt into a new consolidated loan, typically a home-equity loan. Consolidation loans can significantly reduce your required monthly payment because they are generally amortized over 10 or 15 years. Use this debt consolidation calculator to determine how quickly you could get out of debt and how much interest you might save.

Frequently Asked Questions
A Home Equity loan lets you borrow amounts based on the amount of equity you have in your home. This type of loan provides a lump sum of money up-front and the loan balance is paid back monthly, with a fixed payment amount and a fixed interest rate. A home equity loan is good for people who have an immediate and specific purpose for the funds, such as home improvements or a big-ticket purchase.
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is an open-ended line of credit. A credit limit is set based on the amount of equity you have in your home and can be used whenever you need it. Unlike a home equity loan, once the balance of a HELOC is paid down, the line remains open. Your monthly payment will vary based on your outstanding balance and the variable interest rate. A HELOC is best suited for people who want access to funds in the case of an emergency, have children starting college, or perhaps plan to make a series of purchases or payments over time.
To consider a value higher than the purchase price for purposes of taking equity from the home, the property must be owned for at least 1 year from the settlement date.
You can save thousands of dollars by choosing a 15 year term over a 30 year term. Your monthly payment will be higher. You need to determine what you can comfortably pay.
