Post Home Equity Loans - A Jackpot or Pending Disaster?
by: Jim Wilson

Equity loans were developed to assist homeowners to increase the equity on their home in order to make cash, or else create another loan on the house. Home prices escalate each year, making the house increase worth each day that it still stands. A House's equity then is the entire value of the property, minus the mortgage the homeowner is paying on the house.

If you establish an equity loan, you must take into consideration that the loan is envisioned to end your first mortgage and then commence regular payments on the pending loan. Lenders call for borrowers to pay a minimum of 5 percent upfront deposits, as a guarantee. The larger mortgage of deposit will cut back your interest rates and mortgage payments in most instances.

Equity loans then are borrowed money and the homeowner specifies collateral, which usually is the house. There are advantages of signing up for equity loans, particularly if the borrower is in debt and needs cash to pay off his house. The collateral,though, is the garnishing product if the borrower cannot repay his mortgage. Stated a different way, if the borrower fails to make repayment on the equity loan, then the bank may well take back the home.

As a result, the plan for homeowners is to borrow money by taking out an equity loan to minimize the monthly mortgages. Some homeowners may pay $500-$600 per month on their mortgage; and if they stumble on the correct lender, they will apply for an equity loan to repay $180 per month. The reduction is wonderful, but what the homeowner is doing is taking out a 30-year term loan, paying less than $200; as a result the homeowner is in fact paying double for the same house.

Mortgages come in quite a few styles; so if you are considering refinancing your home, it pays to shop around for rock bottom rates and greatest deals. If you are choosing an equity loan, you might want to query about overpay and underpay loans, where you might get your hands on lump sums of money back on your mortgage. Additionally, you will really want to print out contracts and compare them page by page to ascertain what benefits you will gain by choosing one legal agreement over the other.
