What is a Home Equity Loan?

A Home Equity loan uses the equity in your home to get funds for home renovations, home improvements, college tuition, or whatever life throws at you.

What is the Difference Between a Closed End Home Equity and Home Equity Line of Credit?

A Closed End Home Equity loan is a fixed-rate loan with a set payback term.  The entire loan is disbursed at the time of closing. A Home Equity Line of Credit is a variable rate loan and is a revolving form of credit with a limit that you can borrow up to as you need it.
