Questions about Home Equity Loans.

Main

A home equity loan lets you borrow a fixed amount, secured by the equity in your home, and receive your money in one lump sum. Typically, home equity loans have a fixed interest rate, fixed term and fixed monthly payment. Interest on a home equity loan may be tax deductible under certain circumstances. Please consult your tax advisor to see if you qualify.

Main

With a home equity line of credit (HELOC), you get the flexibility to withdraw money as you need it up to a predetermined credit limit and repay the loan over a fixed term. Typically HELOCs have a variable interest rate that can increase or decrease over time. Generally, there is a fixed "draw" period, during which you may with draw funds, repay them or a portion of them up to a credit limit, similar to a revolving credit card. During the draw period, many lenders permit you to make interest-only payments.  After the draw period ends, you can no longer request funds and are required to repay the outstanding balance over the remaining term of the loan. By contrast, a home equity loan gives you all of your funds upfront in a lump sum and usually comes with a fixed interest rate and monthly payment that never change for the life of the loan. Discover offers home equity loans and mortgage refinances instead of HELOCs.

With Discover, you will not have to pay any application fees, origination fees, or appraisal fees. Since a home equity loan or mortgage refinance is a secured debt, the average interest rate is typically lower than what you'll pay on an average credit card or other form of unsecured debt.

Main

A fixed interest rate on your home equity loan means you will make stable and predictable interest payments towards your loan balance for the life of the loan. While, with a variable interest rate, your interest rate and payment can change over time due to a variety of factors.

When you apply for your loan, loan options you receive with variable interest rates often start with lower rates than options with fixed rates, making them more attractive. However, because variable interest rates can change over time, your original variable rate may be pushed higher during your repayment period.

Main

First, calculate the amount of equity you have in your home and how much you can borrow using our Loan Amount Calculator.

Next, use our Monthly Payment Calculator to see what your monthly payment could be. It’s also a good idea to use our Debt Consolidation Calculator to see how much you could save each month by consolidating debts with your loan.

Now that you know how much you may be able to borrow and how your loan will affect your financial situation, you can submit your home equity loan application with more confidence in getting approved.

Mortgage providers will base the home equity loan options you receive on your available equity, income, debt, and credit history. Compare the loan amounts, rates, terms, and fees of these options to make an informed decision about the best one for you.

Discover Home Loans features zero costs at closing, zero application fees, and zero origination fees.
