Home Equity Loan Broker in Ontario
You worked hard for your home, now let your home work for you.
You could be sitting on a gold-mine. As you pay off a mortgage, the market value of a home is accrued over time.
When we talk about equity, we mean the amount of ownership built in a home. This comes from the value of a home minus the total of the mortgage. You can draw out money from your home in various forms to pay off bills, conduct renovations or even go on a vacation.
One such solution is a home equity loan. As the name suggests, this is where a property owner can draw money from the equity built up in their home. The amount that you can take out is based on the value of your home.

Types of home equity loans
A Fixed-Term Loan is a one-time lump-sum loan that you pay back on a monthly basis. The payments stay the same month to month, so you can easily budget without expecting any surprises.
Homeowners can also take out a line of credit commonly referred to as a HELOC, a ‘Home Equity Line of Credit’. This is available provided you have at least 20% equity in your home and a good credit rating. This provides you with access to funds as you need them on a competitive interest rate.
