Mortgage Rates Surge to New Long-Term Lows After Fed
Wed, 20 Mar 2019 22:00:51 GMT - Mortgage rates broke a week-long streak of silence today following a policy announcement from the Federal Reserve. Even before today's Fed announcement, we knew we'd likely be seeing a move in rates. We just didn't know in which direction, or at what pace. As it happens, we were treated to the best case scenario on both accounts (i.e. rates moved lower at a fast pace). As we discussed yesterday, it was the Fed's balance sheet that got most of the attention from financial markets. This refers to the Fed's loan portfolio consisting of Treasuries and mortgage-backed-bonds (both forms of loans that entitle the Fed to collect interest and principal payments). As those payments came in, the Fed had previously been putting the money back into new loans (buying new bonds to replace the old ones). They
Rates Unchanged for 4th Straight Day. That Should Change Tomorrow
Tue, 19 Mar 2019 20:17:05 GMT - Mortgage rates were flat for the 4th day in a row today in a sign that investors have largely taken their seats for tomorrow's big show. The Fed will release its new policy statement at 2pm tomorrow, and while they're not expected to hike rates this time around, there are other important considerations that could have a big impact on rates. One of the considerations is the fact that March is one of the months where the Fed updates its economic projections.

Home Equity Loan

Home Equity Loan

What is a 'Home-Equity Loan'

A consumer loan secured by a second mortgage, allowing home owners to borrow against their equity in the home. The loan is based on the difference between the homeowner's equity and the home's Current market value.  The mortgage also provides collateral for an asset-backed security issued by the lender and sometimes tax deductible interest payments for the borrower. 

Also known as "equity loan" or "second mortgage".

BREAKING DOWN 'Home-Equity Loan'

A home-equity loan is basically a line of credit secured by your home. When the line of credit is drawn down, the financial institution providing it places a second mortgage loan on your home until the loan is paid off, after which the you can use the loan to finance other purchases. However, if the loan is not paid off, your home could be sold to pay off the remaining debt. Interest rates on such loans are usually adjustable rather than fixed and lower than standard second mortgages or credit cards.

 

Home Equity Loan or Line or Credit?

Should you get a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit, known as a HELOC? With a home equity loan, you get a lump sum. A HELOC provides you a revolving credit line, much like a credit card.
