A home equity line of credit (HELOC) can be useful when you are looking a lump sum to renovate your home, make a big purchase, or consolidate debt. A HELOC is a type of revolving credit secured by your home equity. This open-ended loan may be be charged up or paid down during the set term of the loan. The loan interest generally changes every month

In a HELOC, your lender approves you for a particular credit amount - the highest sum you can borrow at any one time under the plan. In deciding your credit limit, your pay-rate, debts, credit history and other monetary circumstances will be considered. You will be required to schedule an appraisal on your home to determine your home's up-to-date market value. Your credit limit will be set considering all of the above, as well as a percentage of your property's appraised market value, which is then subtracted from the balance owed on your existing mortgage loan.
