What is a Home Equity Line of Credit?

A home equity line of credit, also known as a HELOC, is a line of credit secured by your home that gives you a revolving credit line to use for large expenses. With a HELOC, your borrowing against the available equity in your home and the house is used for collateral for the line of credit. As you repay your outstanding balance, the amount of available credit is replenished – much like a credit card. This means you can continually borrower against the line of credit for the full life of the draw term.
