I own my home free and clear. What loan is best for me?

I want to get a 10-15 yr $50,000 fixed rate loan to do home improvements. The current market value of my single family primary residence is $103,000. I was considering a home equity loan, but when I checked the interest rates with local banks it was 7+%. I spoke with someone about a cash- out refinance and the interest rate was lower, about 4%. The reason I thought about a home equity loan was because of the tax write-off. But with interest rates being so low right now, would it even be worth it? Thanks in advance for your help! by jal0109 from Maricopa, Arizona. Aug 25th 2011 Reply

Home equity loans and standard conventional mortgages with fixed terms earn interest in different ways. I would talk to a lender in your area and have them work up an amortization schedule both ways so you can decide the best option for you. Your lender may be able to offer you a fixed term for the money you need and couple it with a line of credit so you have to option to withdraw additional money later without having to incur additional closing cost.
