Should I Get a HELOC? Thankfully, many of our clients are happy with their mortgages.  The interest rate, the terms, the peace of mind --- all are satisfactory and there's no motivation to change or refinance.  But what happens if there's a need to use the equity in the home to finance a remodeling project, a large purchase or to just have a "safety net?"  A home equity line of credit or "HELOC" can be used to meet these purposes, but should you get a HELOC and, if so, how do they work? What Is a HELOC?A home equity line of credit, or HELOC, is most often a second mortgage or junior lien, that "goes behind" your existing (first) mortgage.  Unlike a traditional "closed end" mortgage that is fully-amortized, a HELOC usually allows the borrower to draw a balance on a line or limit, then pa...

And since crawlspaces are mostly unmonitored, hazards can breed there unchecked for long periods of time. The following are some of the more common dangers discovered in crawlspaces: • mol...

Figure 1 before a 203k consultant was involvedMost 203(k) consultants are presented like a football team’s offensive coordinator – a point guard that runs plays on a basketball court and a star infielder – all in one the point is working as a team!.
