In respect to this, can you use your Heloc to buy another home?
HELOC: Most homeowners don't use them for this A home equity line of credit (HELOC) works great for home improvement projects or to consolidate debt. But most homeowners never use them for this: to make a down payment on another home purchase.
Beside above, how do you use equity to buy another house? You can tap into your existing home equity by taking out a cash-out refinance loan. When you do this, you extract enough cash to pay off your existing mortgage and get the cash you need to buy the new home. With a cash-out refinance, your total loan amount typically cannot exceed 80 percent of your home's value.
Just so, can you use Heloc to pay down mortgage?
You can use a HELOC for just about anything, including paying off all or part of your remaining mortgage balance. Once you get approved for a HELOC, you could pay off your mortgage and then make payments to your HELOC rather than your mortgage.
What happens if you don't use a Heloc?
If you don't, the lender will foreclose. Even if you have a HELOC that only charges interest on the outstanding debt during the first 10 years, the loan will go into repayment mode after that, requiring you to pay both principal and interest.
