Frequently asked questions…

What is equity?  Equity is the difference between what your house is worth and what you owe.  For example, if your house is worth $100,000, and you owe $70,000, you have $30,000 in equity. 

How much can I borrow? The bank will order an appraisal to determine the value of the property that is being mortgaged.  The maximum LTV is 90% of the appraised value, less any balance owed on an existing mortgage, if applicable.

How is my payment calculated?  HELOC’s have a 20-year term.  This first 10 years is considered the “draw” period.  During this time, you will be billed for interest only (also known as a finance charge).  You can choose to make principal payments to reduce your balance, but will only be billed for interest during your draw period.  At the end of the draw period a monthly principal and interest payment of 1.50% of the current balance will be required.
