Borrowing with a home equity loan is one of the most cost-effective ways to borrow, especially if you are borrowing for home improvements. That's because in some cases the interest you pay on a home equity loan used for home improvements may be tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor for details.
If you are looking to consolidate debt, a home equity loan could also help you save. Consolidating your debt under a low-rate home equity loan could reduce the total amount of interest you pay and possibly lower your monthly payments. Look how much you could save.

And while a home equity loan can help reduce your interest expense, monthly payments and tax bill (if used for qualified home improvement expenses), if you're using a home equity loan to pay off your higher-interest credit card debt it is important that you be disciplined enough not to incur new credit card debt. Limit the use of your cards and pay off balances in full each month. Otherwise, you won't decrease your overall debt.
