If you need cash to use around the house, but don’t have a very big savings account, don’t turn to credit cards, when you may be sitting on top of lots of cash…literally! The $2,500 you want to remodel your kitchen or build a deck may be sitting right underneath you! In South Florida, real estate values have risen so dramatically, almost everyone who has lived in their home for more than 2 years has built up equity in their home. That equity may be better to borrow from than your credit card company for two reasons.
1. You’ll probably get a lower rate and better terms than charging it on a credit card.
2. You get to write off the interest on your taxes.
A Home Equity Line of Credit, or Home Equity Loan, may even help you get out of debt altogether, by consolidating higher interest debts like school loans, cars and credit cards.
