What is a Home Equity Loan?

Equity is the difference between the value of your home and the money you still owe on your mortgage. Sometimes referred to as a second mortgage, a home equity loan allows you to borrow against the equity you have built up in your property. With a home equity loan, your home is used as collateral for your debt consolidation loan. This type of debt consolidation allows you to benefit from mortgage interest rates that are typically lower than rates for other types of debt.

Another benefit of a home equity loan is that in most cases, interest paid is fully tax deductible.
