Now that the stress of the holiday season is behind us, it’s maybe the perfect time to consolidate any high interest credit card debt using the equity in your home.
A home equity line of credit (HELOC), from West Suburban Bank, can be used to consolidate all your bills into one payment. Chances are you will get a much lower APR, which will help you save money that can be used to pay off your debt sooner. The best part is a HELOC is a revolving line of credit. You can continue to borrow against it for any of your lending needs as you pay it down.
If you had a $25,000 Home Equity Line of Credit and you used $10,000 to consolidate high interest credit card debt, your loan balance would be $10,000 and you would still have available $15,000. As you make payments and pay down the balance, the principle amount paid off becomes available to be used again*. Let’s say, you paid $5,000 down within 6 months. Your available credit on the HELOC would be $20,000, which you could use for any purposes such as home improvement projects, tuition costs, or virtually anything else.

* During the “Draw Period”, minimum payments are accrued finance charges, any past due amounts, and other charges (if applicable). During the Draw Period, only making minimum payment will not reduce your outstanding obligation. An increase in rates will increase your monthly payment. After the Draw Period, all outstanding balance enters a “Repayment Period.” During this period, you will no longer be able to obtain credit advances and must repay the outstanding balance over a specified period of months.
