Home Equity Line-of-Credit
A home equity line of credit is a line of revolving credit, similar to a credit card.
It allows you to use as much (or as little) of the credit line as you like, up to an approved dollar amount.
You have 10 years to access the credit line.
Once this period has ended, you must stop borrowing and repay the loan within 15 years.
