A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a revolving line of credit that is secured by your home’s equity. With a HELOC, you’re borrowing against the available equity in your home and the house is used as collateral.

Because HELOCs use your home as collateral, they usually have much better interest terms than personal loans, credit cards, and other unsecured debt.

Just like a credit card, the amount of available credit is replenished when payments are made on your outstanding balance. This means you can borrow as much or as little of your available balance as you need throughout your draw period (up to 10 years) until you reach the credit limit you established at closing.

To qualify for a HELOC, you need to have available equity in your home, meaning you must owe less on your mortgage than the value of your home. Applying for a HELOC is very similar to applying for a home loan in what documentation you’ll need to provide.
