Acronym of the day! What is a HELOC?

Blog by Diane Cardoso | May 14th, 2020

What is a HELOC? Don't you just love Acronyms?  In it's simplest form, a HELOC works somewhat like a credit card.  You can borrow money up to a certain credit limit set by your lender and then pay back the borrowed amounts along with the interest.  This option can offer more flexibility - you can even withdraw and make payments on a daily or weeky basis, if necessary. 
A HELOC's credit limit depends upon a number of factors, including your credit and unpaid debts, but it's determined largely by the market value of your home and the amount you owe on your mortgage.
