A home equity loan could help you consolidate and possibly reduce interest payments on credit cards, auto loans and other debts. Compare these scenarios to see the potential impact of consolidating debt.

 

 

SCENARIO 1

 

$10K of credit card debt

x

Interest rate of 14.9% 

$5,640 in interest over 5 years

 

 

 

SCENARIO 2

 

$10K Home Equity Loan

Interest rate of 5.75%

$1,530 in interest over 5 years.

 

In this example, that’s $4,110 in savings on interest.

 

 

On top of significant savings on interest, you may also be able to claim a tax deduction for the interest you pay on a home equity loan. Consult a tax advisor.
