What is a mortgage?
A mortgage is an agreement between you and a lender that gives the lender the right to take your property if you fail to repay the money you’ve borrowed plus interest. Mortgage loans are used to buy a home or to borrow money against the value of a home you already own.

Home Equity Loans

How Our Home Equity Line of Credit Works
A home equity line of credit is a variable rate line of credit that uses your primary residence or rental property as collateral, or security for the debt. This
variable rate features interest and principal payments that can change over time. While rates may change daily, you’ll have a specific rate cap, which
limits how much your rate can change over the life of your line of credit.
Understanding Timing: Borrowing vs. Repaying
A home equity line of credit includes a draw period of up to 5 years during which you can borrow as much or as little as you need (within your credit limit), whenever you need it. The minimum payment required is an interest only for that 5 years period.
When your draw period ends, you enter the repayment period. This period can last up to 10 years during which you are expected to repay your outstanding balance. You’ll no longer be able to borrow funds during this time.

Mortgages and Home Equity Line-of-Credit Loans
The biggest difference between a mortgage and a home equity line of credit is:
- A Mortgage has only one purpose; buying a house.
- A Home Equity Loan is a loan you can use for many purposes using the equity in your home.
What is a Home Equity Line of Credit? (HELOC)
If you are in the market for credit, a home equity plan is one of several options that might be right for you. Before making a decision, however, you should weigh carefully the costs of a home equity line of credit against the benets Shop for the credit terms that best meet your borrowing needs without posing undue financial risks. And remember, failure to repay the amounts you’ve borrowed, plus interest, could mean the loss of your home.
A home equity line of credit is a form of revolving credit in which your home serves as collateral. Many homeowners use home equity credit lines only for major items, such as education, home improvements, or medical bills, and choose not to use them for day-to-day expenses.
With a home equity line, you will be approved for a specific amount of credit. Many lenders set the credit limit on a home equity line by taking a percentage (say, 75%) of the home’s appraised value and subtracting from that the balance owed on the existing mortgage.
Appraised Value of Home $100,000
Percentage x 75%
Percentage of Appraised Value = $ 75,000
Less Balance Owed on Mortgage – $ 40,000
Potential Line of Credit $ 35,000
In determining your actual credit limit, the lender will also consider your ability to repay the loan (principal and interest) by looking at your income, debts, and other nancial obligations as well as your credit history.
What is a debt-to-income ratio? Why is the 43% debt-to-income ratio important?
To calculate your debt-to-income ratio, you add up all your monthly debt payments and divide them by your gross monthly income. Your gross monthly income is generally the amount of money you have earned before your taxes and other deductions are taken out. For example; Your debt-to-Income ratio is
all your monthly debt payments divided by your gross monthly income. This number is one way lenders measure your ability to manage the payments you make every month to repay the money you have borrowed.
Gross Monthly Income
Auto Loan $ 100
Other Debts $ 400
Monthly Debt Payments $2000
The Debt-to-Income Ratio is 33 percent. ($2000 is 33% of $6000.)
Evidence from studies of mortgage loans suggest that borrowers with a higher debt-to-income ratio are more likely to run into trouble making monthly payments.
