About Fixed Rate 2nd Home Equity Loans
Are you building a house with credit cards? There are better ways to invest in home improvements.
It may seem only natural to whip out the plastic when paying for home repairs or small improvement projects. Unfortunately, credit card interest rates are typically high, and maxing out credit lines can be bad for your credit score. Make new home improvements, debt consolidation, pay off adjustable rate rising HELOCs.
A closed end FIXED rate 2nd lien mortgage can be a good alternative. Right now, interest rates are still historically low and may even be tax deductible (check with your tax pro).
