If you need financing to make repairs or upgrades to your home or to use on other expenses, one flexible option worth considering is a home equity loan.

With this lending product, you can get the funding you need in a form which works for you.

What are Home Equity Loans?

A home equity loan is classified as a second mortgage. When you take out a home equity loan, you are borrowing against your home equity, which acts as collateral.

Home equity loans coming two varieties.

Lump sum home equity loans:

When you opt for this type of home equity loan, you receive the full amount that you are borrowing all at once. The loan is due back over the term you agree on. Every month, you make a payment in a fixed amount.

Home equity lines of credit (HELOCs):

This option works much like any other line of credit. Based on your qualifications, you will be approved up to a certain limit. You get to choose how much to borrow, and you only pay interest on that.

Each type of home equity loan has advantages and disadvantages. You can learn more about these during your consultation so that you can choose the type of home equity loan which is right for you.

Benefits of a Home Equity Loan in Ohio

Here are a few of the reasons why first time and repeat homebuyers choose FHA loans:

You have control over how you use the funds you receive. Many borrowers use home equity loans to finance upgrades or repairs to their homes. You can use a home equity loan for anything you want, however, even if it has nothing to do with your home.

Home equity loans are flexible, and you get to pick how you want your funds disbursed.

Interest rates on home equity loans tend to be affordable, especially in comparison to credit card interest rates.

If you have built up substantial equity, you may be able to qualify to borrow a hefty sum.

Note that the closing costs of a home equity loan to me to be accounted for. You will need to figure out whether you can afford them, and whether the benefits of the loan outweigh its costs.

Do You Qualify for an Ohio Home Equity
Loan?

To be approved for a home equity loan, you will need to meet these requirements:

Your credit score should be around 620 at a minimum. The higher your score is, the more affordable your loan will be.

Your debt-to-income ratio is expected to be 43% at the maximum in most cases, though there may be some flexibility. The lower your debt-to-income ratio is, the more bargaining power you will have.

Lenders will consider your employment history.

How much equity you own your home is another major factor for approval. At a minimum, you should own 15-20% equity. The more equity you have, the more money you can be approved to borrow.

Where do I begin!?! Jarrod Singleton is amazing & services his clients with the upmost professionalism. He helped me refinance my mortgage, and truly helped make a situation I saw as daunting, but instead made it extremely easy, and beyond beneficial to me. The level of service, check ins, management of the documents and process was by far the best. I would recommend him to ANYONE needing mortgage, refinance, and so on to! I have called him since to advise on my future mortgage scenarios and he walks me through possibilities, and mapping out a plan in place with whatever it may be I have questions about. This goes beyond a transactional service, instead a relationship I have been able to trust for my future decisions as well.
