Bank of America Home Equity

Bank of America Home Equity offers you a feasible option to use the appraised value of your home in obtaining finance for education expenses, bills, refinancing or doing home renovation or repair. It is kind of second mortgage which can be availed either through a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit commonly referred to as HELOC. The upper limit of the loan amount is based on a certain percentage (usually 80%) of the accumulated equity of your home in both the cases. However, they differ in the mode of payment and in the rate of interest.

Home Equity Loan: A home equity loan functions very much like a second mortgage with the facility to get the money in a single lump sum amount. The repayment is extended over a period of time with a fixed interest rate and a fixed monthly payment. You can use a home equity loan to pay off your existing mortgage or accomplish tasks that require a huge sum of money, such as home repair, renovation or bill payment. With a Bank of America home equity loan, you can avail benefits that are not available with most other mortgages, such as tax deduction, one-time cash pay out and fixed interest rates

You can take out funds as much as your maximum limits permit and when you repay the outstanding balance, the money is available again for use. A home equity line of credit is a good option for consolidation of loans with higher rates and also to pay expenses for projects aimed at increasing the value of your home. While shopping for the home equity line of credit from Bank of America, give special attention to its features and insist the lender to include your preference. The features that vary are annual fee, cancellation fee, margin which is used to determine the HELOC rate, prime rate, the amount you must withdraw each time you borrow, Teaser rate, automatic payment discounts and up-front fees.
