Sometimes you need a little extra cash to reach your goals and dreams. Maybe you’re just shy of the amount you require to take your dream vacation, or perhaps you’re short on the necessary funds to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity. Whatever the situation, there’s a good chance you can get the money you need by taking advantage of an asset you already own: your home.

A home equity loan will allow you to borrow money against the equity you have in your home. Essentially, the equity is the value of your home minus any liens attached to it. Your home is the collateral for the loan, and the money you borrow is yours to use however you need. You can use a home equity loan to fund your major financial goals, set up a safety net for the future or pay off debt like medical bills and loans from college.

Use Your Home’s Equity To:

  • Make home improvements: If you’re taking on a remodeling project, a home equity loan is a smart way to get the funds you need and invest them right back into your property.
  • Book a dream vacation: Vacations and other large, one-time expenses can be tough to cover with savings alone. With a home equity loan, you can stick to a fixed amount while treating yourself to a dream getaway.
  • Pay college tuition: Sometimes student loans aren’t enough or aren’t an option at all. A home equity loan will let you borrow the money you need for a fixed rate.
  • Pay off debt with your HELOC funds: A HELOC, or home equity line of credit, will let you use your home as collateral with competitive interest rates. This line of credit offers a perfect opportunity for you to pay off outstanding debts.
  • Prepare for retirement: When you bought your home, you made an investment in your future. A home equity loan will let you do it again.
  • Help a family member: You can’t always prepare for everything. If a family member is struggling with an unexpected expense, a home equity loan can give you the opportunity to lend them a hand.
  • Have emergency funds on hand: A home equity loan can give you a financial cushion to fall back on when things get tough.
  • Pursue a new investment opportunity: With the right investments, you can keep growing your net worth.
