Montana Home Equity Loans
Homeowners in “Big Sky” country, Montana can tackle a variety of projects by tapping into their home’s equity to finance home improvements, repairs, debt consolidation and other large, ongoing expenses. Montana lenders are offering competitive rates and terms for home equity loans and home equity lines of credit. Confused which product is the best fit? For one time large expenses such as a new roof, an updated kitchen or debt consolidation; a home equity loan is a good fit. Montana borrowers can take advantage of the home equity loan’s fixed rate and traditional repayment schedule. Ongoing expenses such as medical bills or college tuition may be better suited using a home equity line of credit (HELOC). A home equity line of credit (HELOC) is offered at a variable rate and the borrower only repays what is drawn against the line.
Before applying for a home equity line of credit (HELOC) or a home equity loan, Montana borrowers from cities such as Billings (59101) to Helena (59601) should check their credit report. The credit report is a compilation of financial activity over several years. The credit bureau arrives at a credit score based on that activity; which ultimately impacts the borrower’s interest rate for the second mortgage product. The better (or higher) the score; the lower the rate the borrower will receive. Montana borrowers should retrieve a copy of the credit report to ensure all information is correctly reported and make changes to any inaccuracies.
