HELOC stands for Home Equity Line of Credit. This is a rather new concept in the last 30 years where you’re able to collateralize your home equity into a line of credit. Very similar to a credit card. This means you can pay back your line of credit and re-use it for future use. HELOC approval process can be slightly different than applying for a traditional 30 year mortgage…

Now just a friendly reminder that a mortgage is simply a financial document (instrument) that ties a Promissory note to a Security (real property). So technically, a HELOC uses a mortgage too!

Now the HELOC application process can vary depending on the bank because a HELOC is a Non-QM loan. (Non Qualifying Mortgage) loan. While the traditional 30 year mortgage is heavily regulated by the government, a HELOC has less regulation that banks need to follow. Which means that banks can customize their offers and options as far as what to include in the HELOC. So not ALL HELOCs are created equal and banks may look at different factors. So just because you get denied with one bank doesn’t mean that it’s foiled your chances to get a HELOC else where…

Most banks will require a minimum credit score of 680-700… There are, of course, exceptions to this rule.

You also have to remember that banks have LTV (Loan To Value) requirements. Meaning, they won’t issue HELOCs if you have TOO much debt. If you’re planning on using a HELOC for our strategy but don’t have enough equity, you can always use an alternative such as a PLOC, BLOC, or even credit cards.

    I have a credit score of 757, have a current mortgage (always pay on time), and a credit usage of under 2%. I just applied for a HELOC in hopes of securing 70K line based on 95k of my home’s equity. None of the 2 companies I applied online witg with even asked me for my w2’s or assets outside of my current home. I was declined for both of them:( what could I have done differently or any ideas on why I was immediately denied? Thanks.

    Can I hire someone to help me get approved for a HELOC? I mean, have them fill out the application correctly, find the loopholes, etc. I don’t have good credit and need to pay things off to improve it. Similar to hiring an attorney for a case.

    They said i lacked experience yet i can do this in my sleep. My credit is good, i have assets, my rental is free and clear so i have collateral. If i pay bank makes money if i dont they get a nice rental at a discount. I thought banks were a little more intelligent

    I don’t show much income (between 25-35k) but I have a new home paid off worth close to 400k. I was curious if they are more flexible if your home is paid off and your only looking to take out 100k (25% of home value)

    I love the HELOC, it is the best thing ever if used correctly. Just like a plane or a car is. They are scary and terrible if you drive or fly irresponsibly. If you use a HELOC irresponsible–BAD idea. Use it correctly, it is a massive benefit. The key is responsibility–be responsible.

    I watched your video about paying off your mortgage quickly using a HELOC. I'm just about to watch this video so excuse me if I'm uninformed about it. I just had a question about the other video and couldn't find it again. What if I have a 3.1% 15 year fixed mortgage. Is my interest rate too low to use the HELOC method to shorten or completely pay off my mortgage super early?
