How Does A Home Equity Loan Work ?


Apartment Listing  

For those of you who are in need of financing for short term purposes where you need money for your children’s college fees or to pay for medical emergencies, a home equity loan or HEL might be the best possible option for you.

Not only does a HEL provide means for short term financing, but it also ensures that you put up collateral that is your equity on the house that you own.To know more about how much you can request in a HEL, you need to calculate how much you are worth or how much is your equity on the present house. The equity that is calculated this way would indicate how much you can borrow on your house. The equity is calculated by subtracting the money that is owed by you on the mortgage from the current value of the house. Note that the equity is arrived at after calculating the current price of the house and not the purchase price. In this way, the HEL is an accurate indicator of how much you are worth as opposed to your gross worth.

You need to know the repayment options for the HEL as well. This includes calculating the rate of interest and the tenor of the loan that takes into account the differential payments that you need to make and the calculation of the HEL is done accordingly. Finally, the risk that is associated with a HEL is relatively small though in case of non-payment, there is every chance that your house might be taken away from you.
