If it seems like every day brings a new credit card bill, it might be time to consider consolidating your debts with a low-interest home equity loan. With a home equity loan, you can often lower your monthly payments and spend less time paying bills. You could even improve your credit rating with a better payment record.
A home equity loan, or second mortgage, is secured by the value of your home, so the interest rate is usually much lower than a credit card. The interest is also tax deductible. You can take advantage of lower monthly payments to pay off your debt more quickly or to save money.
Home equity loans are available as fixed or adjustable-rate mortgages. Borrowers pay an origination fee, which can be rolled into the loan, plus an appraisal fee and title insurance.
