Differences Between a HELOC and Home Equity Loan

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is an open line of credit, available for use at any time, present or future. The many benefits of a HELOC include:

  • The option to receive cash up front, with the flexibility to use your line of credit at any time for any expense
  • Flexible payment options
  • Interest paid may be tax deductible*
  • The interest rate is lower than credit cards

A Home Equity Loan, also known as a closed-end second mortgage, is a solution to get cash for a one-time need and specific loan amount, e.g., remodeling your kitchen and paying off the loan in a five-year period. The many benefits of a home equity loan include:

  • Provides cash for a one-time need
  • Fixed monthly payments
  • Interest paid may be tax deductible*
  • The interest rate is lower than credit cards

*Consult a tax advisor regarding the deductibility of interest
