Choosing to move to a new home or to make improvements to your current home is a big decision.
Moving to a new home
For most people, a home is the largest purchase they’ll make during their lifetime. Some of the pros of a new home is choosing a new location that better suits your family’s needs, a more desirable community, more living space, and if you purchase a home that's in move-in condition, you won't need to worry about renovations. A few cons of moving at this time, are the high upfront costs and potentially higher interest rate on your mortgage.
Improving your current home with a HELOC or Home Equity Loan
Now, let’s look at the option of improving your current home with a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). If you choose a Tyndall HELOC, you'll have a revolving line of credit and a Visa card to make purchases easy. A flexible HELOC is a loan you can access when you need to—and pay principal and interest only on the amount you use.
A Home Equity Loan may also be a good choice. This option will provide you with one lump sum. With a Tyndall Home Equity Loan, you will benefit from a high borrowing limit (up to 80% of your home’s value), competitive rate, and low monthly payments with terms up to 20 years. This option will allow you to make home improvements, consolidate debt, add a swimming pool, or cover other large purchases with a fixed rate where monthly payment won’t change.
Pros of improving your home:
- Completely customize to fit your needs. Use your funds to customize home projects to perfectly suit your family’s needs and tastes.
- No stress of relocating.Continue to enjoy the same home and neighborhood you’ve lived in for years.
- Increase the value of your home.Home improvement projects increase your home’s value, increasing your net profit when you do decide to sell.
- Save on moving costs. Why pay thousands of dollars in closing and moving costs when you can use your home's equity to improve your original investment?
