What is a Fixed Rate Equity Loan?
A Fixed Rate Equity Loan is a loan borrowers take out independent of their first mortgage. It is a second lien on your home, with its own interest rate and terms. Unlike a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), Fixed Rate Equity Loans are paid in one disbursement. These loans are also sometimes referred to as Second Mortgages. You can take out a Fixed Rate Equity Loan to consolidate high-interest debt, pay for college tuition, fund a wedding, make home renovations, or any other needs!

A HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit) is also a second lien you take out on your home, but it has a revolving line of credit. They work like credit cards, with the ability to borrow money at different points in time and only pay interest on what you use.
Fixed Rate Equity Loans are different from HELOC’s because, instead of pulling a certain amount from your equity, you receive a lump-sum all at once. This means, if you were to take $150,000 out of the equity of your home, you would receive one payment of $150,000 and begin to pay interest on the full amount immediately.
Both HELOCs and Fixed Rate Equity Loans offer borrowers competitive interest rates that are considerably lower than those for credit cards. That’s why many people opt to use these mortgages to consolidate their debt or make big purchases with lower interest rates!
