Home Equity Loans – 5 Useful Application Tips

Obtaining a home equity loan does not have to be a major ordeal. Unlike your first mortgage, you are already in the home, and usually time is not such a major factor. You can close the loan at your own leisure, and take your time researching the different options available to you. Below you will find five tips that will help you make the process as painless as possible. Remember that your best defense is a good offense, so understand the process and everything that is involved. Don’t let your lender pressure you into something that you don’t understand.

1. Get pre-approved! This is something that I would recommend for a first or second mortgage. The process will vary depending on your lender, but you can choose to get pre-approved or pre-qualified. The pre-qualification process allows both you and the lender to review your current financial situation. The lender will then determine how much you can probably borrow. There is no obligation and you are not locked into anything. Pre-approval goes a step further and is a more formal process. You will actually fill out an application, and a credit check will be run. The lender will then issue you a letter outlining the amount that you can borrow. You can then use this to expedite your loan, once you are ready to close.

2. Get your home appraised. When obtaining a home equity loan, the critical part of the puzzle is how much your home is worth. Don’t be fooled into thinking that an appraisal is not necessary. Home values can fluctuate depending on the economy and your own city demographics. Any improvements that you have added to the home since its purchase can also increase this value. So find out at the very beginning how much your home is actually worth. This will help give you a ballpark figure of how much you can actually borrow.

3. Prepare yourself emotionally. A home equity loan seems like a simple way to get needed funds. But, it is important to remember that you have something major on the line with this type of loan. Your home! If you fail to repay your home equity loan, they could take your home. So, it is important that you discuss the process with everyone involved so they understand what this loan entails. Set up a budget for a few months prior to the closing, and set aside the extra monthly payment. You will also want to consider any life-changing events that may happen during the life of your loan. Are you planning on having a child? Changing jobs? Etc. All of these factors can alter your ability to repay your loan.

4. Do your homework. Knowledge is power. Make sure that you have all of the facts when it comes to choosing a lender and a mortgage program. If possible get information from several lenders, so that you can make an educated decision as to which one is the best for your particular situation.

5. Get your break from Uncle Sam! In most cases a home equity loan is tax deductible. So, make sure to keep all paperwork associated with your loan, including closing cost allocations. You may be able to deduct both interest and principal in some cases. Consult with your tax professional to find out how a home equity loan will affect your tax situation.

With a little bit of time and effort, you should have no trouble finding the right home equity product for your specific needs. By planning ahead and researching your options, you can rest assured that you made the best possible choice for you and your family.

Homeowners have an advantage when bad credit prevents them from obtaining new credit accounts. You can use the equity in your home to secure a loan up to 125% of your home’s appraised value. Bad credit will not exclude you from apply for and being approved for a home equity loan. Lenders are currently offering loan products for all types of credit situations. If you have bad credit and own your home, a home equity loan can be designed to fit your individual needs. You can begin rebuilding your credit and get the extra cash you need to pay off high interest credit cards, past due accounts, and any other expenses you may have.

A home equity loan, even if you have bad credit, can be the solution the stress and pressure that comes from past due bills and endless calls from creditors.

Online Trading – The Stock Market is Booming But Be Warned

This article was printed in Alan Hull’s weekly newsletter ‘ActVest’ for Active Investors in March 2005 (available from www.alanhull.com) and is reprinted here with Alan’s permission.

I had the pleasure of being invited on a friend’s yacht to sail in a race on Sydney Harbour yesterday. On board, as one of our motley crew, I met a top ranking corporate executive from one of Australia’s largest banks, who we’ll call ‘Phil’ here for the purpose of this article. After the race ended and after being told of my trading experience, he told me he has a large stock portfolio, many of which are speculative resources stocks. He said that he’s excited by all the money he’s making and wondering how long this has been going on?

As would be expected, ‘Phil’ also asked me for some ��•hot tips” for more stocks to buy. He was surprised with my reply when I told him Daryl Guppy’s standard response of ��•Tips are for waiters” and that I thought he was asking the wrong questions. (Daryl Guppy is a well known Stock Trader and International bestselling author – see www.guppytraders.com)

Rather, I explained he should be asking: * How much longer will this last? * When it finishes how will I know & what will I do? * How do I find out about Technical Analysis and Money & Risk Management? * What’s a Trading Plan and how do I put one together and follow it? * How and when do I add to the stocks I already own? * How should I structure my portfolio regarding individual stock risk, sector risk and total portfolio risk? * What’s my exit strategy for each stock I own? * What’s my exit strategy for my whole portfolio? * How do I keep accurate records and monitor my performance? * What am I going to do to learn more about myself and my own psychological weaknesses (many of which I may not even realise I have) that can make all the difference as to whether I win or lose long term?

‘Phil’ was genuinely surprised that I had taken the wind out of his sails – luckily it was after our sailing race together, but hopefully before he loses his own financial race.

In January at http://www.prweb.com/releases/2005/1/prweb193459.htm I issued a worldwide press release to caution unprepared novice investors and traders of the potential pitfalls ahead in the market. My wife Angela and I lost our waterfront home on Sydney Harbour in the ‘Tech wreck’ of 2000, so we speak from hard personal experience.

As complete novices in the market in 1999, we doubled on paper a large stock portfolio in only six months.

Then in less than a year we suffered catastrophic losses in the tech stock crash of 2000 and beyond: * We were set back more than 15 years financially and emotionally * We were forced to sell our waterfront home – the very same house we had set as a goal soon after arriving in Australia as new and penniless immigrants in 1979. We began renting what I called a ‘dog box’ – as the housing market then rocketed. * Angela was working as a retail assistant

I have a First Class Honors Degree in Civil Engineering that didn’t help. In fact I have since come to understand that it actually helped to work against me. With our experience of riding some of the largest waves (up and down) in the market and having lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process, we know more than most stock traders in the world of the pitfalls that await unsuspecting novice traders and investors. We have since greatly appreciated being exposed to the successful methods taught by expert traders Alan Hull, Daryl Guppy, Jim Berg, Dr Van Tharp and others to trade profitably and with better risk control.

The forum for serious investors www.stockmeetingplace.com is the only chatroom where you will find Daryl Guppy. We recently received the following response from a fellow Australian trader Nathan Unger on that site (see below): ��•…thank you for sharing. Your comments on this subject are very insightful, and rightfully so considering your near trading death experience, per se. Failure is always such a difficult moniker to be branded with, for it involves us having to acknowledge that we were wrong. Of course, acknowledging our mistakes means that we must swallow our pride – an admittedly difficult feat for many traders. Grappling with our own motives amidst the psychological matrix that is the stock market is, to say the least, a bewildering struggle. In an almost paradoxical fashion the stock market can create whelps out of us through both our losses as well as our victories. We are unnerved when we lose and must somehow muster the courage to tentatively re-enter the markets. Yet, potentially even more dangerous are the unbridled successes that often distort a trader’s perception about their ability to regulate further success – successes that work to chide the future admission of failure. Who would have thought that winning could actually become a setup for losing – a conundrum of the worst kind? I know of no other occupation that has the ability to masquerade as both friend and foe and then make you think that you can tell the difference. Your experience is, I believe, a treasure worth perhaps more than the sum of your losses. It reminds me of how the most seaworthy vessels have typically been known to be the ones that have weathered the most devastating storms. Yours is a stellar effort, my friend. I will most certainly be purchasing your book.

Thanks also to Daryl and Alan for their assistance and encouragement in helping to mould John’s encounter into the best trading tool of all – practical experience…”

During 2001, not long after losing our home, we made contact with Daryl and I take this opportunity here to acknowledge and thank him once again for his wisdom and support since that time and also to Alan Hull and Dr Van Tharp since then.

Daryl subsequently invited me to write a short article for his regular weekly newsletter (Tutorials in Applied Technical Analysis) which became the first of many articles as my wife Angela and I began our search for education.

He made a strong point that by concentrating on the research needed to write the articles we would pick up good habits and through sharing with others, we ourselves would be more inclined to stick with the discipline involved in the subject being covered.

We have recently collated the articles I have written for his newsletter and they are now available as ‘The Atkinson – Guppy Articles – Stock & Share Market Educational Options for Investing Online & Online Trading – Opportunity for a Home Based Business’.

Most of these articles deal with concepts and trading skills which are still relevant to readers today and include the following: * CONDITIONAL STOP LOSS ORDERS: A real life comparison between using two brokers for monitoring stop loss orders – the true cost of slippage * DIRECTORS DEALINGS: A snapshot study of the Australian share market to determine, if by monitoring the purchases and sales of company directors with their own shares, whether it is possible to obtain an insight into the future direction of the share price and hitch a ride in the right direction – or jump ship with them. * EXPECTANCY – the net profit or loss that you can expect over a large number of single unit trades. A series of articles with thanks to the work of Dr Van Tharp, author of ‘Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom’ * TAKE-OVERS: A brief overview of some of the strategies traders apply to take-overs. * AVALANCHE SELLING and KANGAROO TAILS: A series of articles on the recent phenomenon in the Australian share market caused by computerised automated conditional stop loss brokers savagely cascading sell orders into the market, with prices often rebounding several percent within minutes.

Angela and I also recently launched our new web site www.sharetradingeducation.com which is designed to be a handy and dynamic reference site for online traders and investors around the world to keep coming back to as a marked ‘favorite’.

It features Jim Berg’s Home Study Course of his own profitable Trading Strategies with Metastock; as well as our own Home Study Courses based on the work of Jim Berg, Daryl Guppy, Alan Hull , Simon Sherwood and our own experience.

In addition, it also contains a growing and helpful list of links to Valued Partners’ sites including brokers, traders’ forums, newsletters, books, data, software, Self Managed Superfunds & more to come.

All visitors are invited to register to gain access to free downloads, upcoming Seminars & more for investing and trading online.

Through my writing articles and through our site, my wife, Angela and I now aim to provide a ‘Road Map of Discovery to the Stock Market’ to help new and existing online investors and traders find the trading education information they need to initially survive the pitfalls ahead, then thrive in the market.

We wish you every success in 2005 and beyond and trust that if you haven’t done so already, you will be seeking out the answers to the questions I offered to my sailing team member ‘Phil’.

Auto Loans – Are You Over Paying?

Auto Loans

Loans for buying vehicles are auto loans. There are two parties in auto loans – lender and borrower. Lender and borrower enter agreement whereby the lender agrees to give certain sum of money to the borrower for buying a vehicle. The borrower has to return the money with interest after an agreed period.

If you do not have enough money to buy a vehicle, auto loans help you buy vehicle without having to pay money from your pocket. It is a form of credit by a lending party or a bank.

You will need to repay auto loans on completion of the agreed term. Repayment amount includes your principal amount and interest, which is the charge of borrower for lending you money. This charge is same as the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). You benefit from low Annual Percentage Rate, as your repayment amount is lower.

Another important consideration while applying for auto loans is to calculate the money you want to borrow. You may need money for down payment only or for down payments and few additional installments too. Plan your needs with financial planner and then apply for the auto loan you need.

Higher auto loans mean more liability for you to pay back with more interest. If you default beyond the payment date, you pay extra interest, which reflects negatively on your credit ratings. Again, interest rates are higher if you have a bad credit history.

You should be above eighteen years with minimum monthly income of US$2,000 to qualify for auto loans. Additionally, you need to have an acceptable proof of your residence and employment.

You can also apply for auto loans on the Internet. Online application helps you receive loan sanction within few minutes and you need not step out to get the loan processed. It is better to apply for multiple quotes online to get a comparative picture of different auto loans, interest rates, repayment periods, etc. Later, you can compare the quotes received and then apply for the best auto loan available

Reverse Mortgages – a Reversal of the Mortgage Process

Mortgages have assumed a number of characters from the time of their inception. The traditional mortgages used to be of the repayment type. Every month the mortgagor used to pay a certain amount towards both principal and interest. Sensing the hardships that people have to face in making these payments, mortgage providers came up with interest only mortgages. But the present day customer is more pampered. He needs a mortgage where he enjoys the cash, but is not required to pay a penny towards the repayment.

A reverse mortgage is a perfect solution to such requirements. It allows a homeowner to plough the equity in his home to get cash. While the borrower enjoys cash on the mortgage, he is rid of any monthly payments.

The amount of loan received on the reverse mortgage will depend on the age of the borrower and the value of the home. The borrower has no obligation to repay the loan as long as he continues to reside in the house or as long as he survives.

To understand the reverse mortgage, it will be beneficial to compare it with forward mortgages. The forward mortgages are the traditional mortgages. These require a monthly payment either towards both principal and interest, or only towards the interest. This way the forward mortgage is repaid at the end of the repayment period.

However, reverse mortgage works opposite to the forward mortgage (hence the name). The lender advances money to the customer, for which he receives no payment. This means that the debt goes on increasing. Simultaneously the equity in home decreases. This is a rising debt and falling equity scenario. The amount of debt can never increase the value of the home. Thus, the mortgage provider, at the time of repayment, can only lay claim on the home.

Reverse mortgage is only available to people who are 62 years or more of age. The home to be mortgaged must be owned by the borrower, either individually or as a joint holder. He must have lived in the home for the majority of the years and this must be the primary residence of the customers.

Reverse mortgage is a good source of income for the elderly people. The borrower must decide the manner in which the amount received through the reverse mortgage is to be disbursed. The government does not tax the amount received on the mortgage, and the borrower is free to use the money in the way he likes. Customers who want a regular income can draw a regular monthly payment. Some customers want a credit line opened in their name so that they can draw cash as and when they want. For others the availability of a lump-sum amount is more important, since they can apply it for purposes that are more constructive. Even a combination of these options may be used to draw the money on mortgage.

The reverse mortgages are also distinct from the other mortgages on the ground that there is no limitation on the amount of income a person must have in order to be eligible for a reverse mortgage. The mortgage is secured on the home of the borrower. This shields the lender against any defaults on the mortgage. Therefore, credit history of the borrower is not much of a problem.

Keeping the home as collateral does not mean losing the right to stay in the home. The borrower can continue living in the home as long as they wish. The mortgage provider holds the right to the property, or the first mortgage. When the mortgage is repaid, the mortgage provider has to part with the rights to the home.

The mortgage will have to be repaid on the death of the last of the co-owners, if the borrower moves house permanently, or if the house is sold. Repayment of the mortgage also becomes due when the borrower fails to pay the property taxes, maintain the home, or pay the insurance of the home. Bankruptcy, letting your home, adding a new owner to the homes title, and being indicted in a fraud or misrepresentation are sufficient grounds on which the mortgage provider may demand repayment. If in case the borrower is not able to repay the mortgage, then the house will be confiscated.

Reverse mortgage leaves little equity in the home to be used by the heirs, unless the home equity is growing at an increasing rate. This will even impede the borrower from getting a secured loan or mortgage. Thus, even though a reverse mortgage is better because there is no obligation to make monthly payments, they must be taken with caution. Planning the repayment of the mortgage in advance, will let you enjoy the mortgage, while saving your house from repossession.

Interest-Only Home Equity Line of Credit

For the homeowner in search of a home equity line of credit the availability of interest-only home equity credit lines has drawn the interest of many who seek to benefit from the value of their homes. The name itself sounds too good to be true. A look at the details could cause the homeowner to think twice before seeking an interest-only home equity line of credit. Or those same details might spur the homeowner to contemplate yet another home equity line of credit.

Banks tend to offer the homeowner more than one-way to obtain an interest only home equity line of credit. One bank for example has advertised the existence of one plan whereby the homeowner gives payments that cover the Prime plus 5% for five years. Then in the next ten years, the homeowner pays a floating interest rate, a rate that is determined by the Prime rate.

Yet that same bank also offers an alternate way for obtaining an interest only home equity line of credit. Under this alternate procedure the homeowner pays 5.75% APR for one year. Then after that first year the homeowner faces an increase of •�¼ % each year until the rate is 6.75% APR. In the sixth year of this particular line of credit the homeowner pays 6.65% every month until the credit line has been paid off.

The homeowner should also consider some of the other approaches to the offering of a home equity line of credit. For example, some banks will offer a draw period at the start of the period of the credit line. During this draw period, the homeowner can withdraw funds for making advances, for repaying advances or for advancing the line of credit. The draw period is followed by a period of repayment.

Each type of home equity line of credit offers the homeowner a way to reap added benefits from the existing credit line. For example, the homeowner could choose to increase the insurance deductibles, knowing that a line of credit had been made available. The higher deductibles would guarantee a decrease in the premium payments on the insurance policy.

A home equity line of credit could also be used to buy discount credit cards at a store of the homeowner’s choosing. In addition, the possession of a home equity line of credit gives the homeowner the ability to make purchases with a Rewards credit card and to then pay the card payment with the check obtained through the credit line.

Once the homeowner has negotiated all of the intricacies of a home equity line of credit then that homeowner is ready to use multiple economic tactics in order to make more money from what he has available. He will be ready to prove the old saying: You have to have money to make money.

Home Equity Loans – A Big Benefit Or A Big Mistake?

When the bills are piling up and there doesn’t seem to be any way out, a home equity loan can seem like the answer to your prayers. Home equity loans can also be a great way to jumpstart a business or investment portfolio. However it’s important to realise that in some circumstances, a home equity loan may in fact make your life a whole lot worse.

A home equity loan is like a second mortgage on your home. If your home is currently worth $130,000, and you have a mortgage against it for $70,000, then you have $60,000 of equity available. Some home equity loans may allow you to borrow up to 80% of your home’s value, others may go higher in special circumstances. In this example, you would be able to borrow another $34,000 as a home equity loan and still have only borrowed 80%.

Before making the decision to borrow more, though, it’s important to sit down and really think about what you’re doing. Firstly, and most importantly, why do you want the money? This is a really crucial part of your decision making. Many people use a home equity loan to fund necessary repairs to their home, or make improvements and so improve their home’s value. In that situation, a home equity loan is a great idea, as the extra borrowings will most likely be offset by the increase in your home’s value – as long as you can afford the extra repayments.

Borrowing to fund a business may also be a good use of home equity loan funds. It’s important, though, not to put your money into a business without any track record, because you may well be throwing it away. Also, never use a home equity loan to try and resurrect a business that’s losing money rapidly. You’ll just end up with a bigger mortgage payment headache and nothing else. But if you have a business that is thriving and desperately needs some funds to expand, a home equity loan may well be the solution if banks aren’t interested in giving you standard business finance.

Investing is another possible use of your home equity loan funds. Again, it’s important to think carefully about what you plan to invest in. You could use the home equity loan as a deposit on an investment property. Or you could use it to be good quality shares. You may well regret it, though, if you buy the latest hot tip speculative share! Choose carefully and wisely, and a home equity loan can be a great way to start your investment portfolio.

Debt consolidation is another popular reason for taking out a home equity loan, and can be beneficial, but only if done wisely. There’s no point increasing the debt on your home to clear your credit card debt, only to turn around and spend, spend, spend until all your cards are at their limits again. You need to close all of the cards as soon as they’re paid off, or only keep one with a small limit for necessary purchases.

There are other reasons for a home equity loan which can make it a useful source of funds, but in these situations it’s really important to be sure that you have no other options, and you can afford the repayments. These may include educational expenses, unexpected medical expenses or a family emergency.

There’s also one reason that is very rarely a good reason to put your family home in further debt – big ticket items. Maybe it will feel really good to have that long vacation, or buy that expensive television and furniture, but ask yourself if it’s really necessary or important. If spending the money on unnecessary things means that somewhere down the track you lose your home, you’ll have paid for those things with a lot more than money.

If you think carefully about a home equity loan, and assess your reasons for borrowing more against the family home logically rather than emotionally, then you will be able to make a sensible choice. A final thought – always assess your ability to repay the loan based on reality and perhaps even ��•worst case scenario” values, rather than optimistic estimates of overtime at work or a promotion. That way you’ll be able to make the payments and enjoy your family home for many more years to come.

Home Equity Line of Credit, Godsend Solution For Your Monetary Needs

 Owning a house is the Greatest American Dream. Additionally, having a house to save you from monetary needs adds up to the benefits of owning the greatest American dream. You have tightened your belt during the time you are saving for your house. Now, that you have enough equity in that property, you may loosen up a bit by making use of your equity through Home Equity Line of Credit.

Home Equity Line of Credit or HELOC, can help you in myriad of financial necessities. It can help you have a fund when you need it and for whatever purpose you may need it. Although, you should be careful because putting your house as collateral may cause you to loose your house if you fail to pay your debt. This should make you think many times before you embark on taking money through home equity line of credit.

However, if your purpose of taking out money by means of home equity line of credit is to pay for medical bills or children’s college education, these expenses are inevitable. Thus, taking out money by means of home equity line of credit can be your best bet.

Additionally, if you want to consolidate your debt, HELOC or home equity line of credit may also be beneficial. This is because compared to credit cards and other unsecured credit facilities, the interest rate in a home equity line of credit is somewhat smaller. Another benefit of this means of taking out money is that consumer credits interests are tax deductible.

However, having said the benefits you may have from acquiring a credit through home equity line of credit, you may also need to look at the possible consequences if you fail to pay your debt. The most important consideration is the possibility of loosing your house to pay off the debt.

It is thus recommendable that while you are considering the flexibility of a credit line, if you need a lump sum fund, you may consider taking out a Home Equity Loan instead. This is because in a home equity loan, you pay the interest and part of the principal debt regularly.

This is in contrast to the variable interest rate that applies in a home equity line of credit. Additionally, in a home equity credit line, your payments balloons at the end when you need to pay the principal amount of debt.

The flexibility of the home equity line of credit extends up to paying only the interests and paying the entire principal loan at the end of the term. This makes it quite hard, and if you are not ready for such balloon payment, the risk of loosing your house is intrinsic in this case.

This is the reason why financial experts recommend that before you sign any contract that puts your house as collateral, you may need to scrutinize yourself a bit.


  • Will you need the money lump sum? Ask about Home Equity Loan.

• Do you need fund periodically? Ask about Home Equity Line of Credit.


Consider also asking for payments terms, interest rates and what conditions will make the lender consider you in default. These questions once answered may help you realize if putting your house as collateral is the best solution to your monetary needs.

There are other credit facilities, for this reason, you may need to do your research first before deciding. Various debt management websites can help you understand the eccentricities of financial management that will help you avoid loosing your most precious asset.
