What is a line of credit?

A line of credit is a home loan which allows you to draw funds as you need them up to an approved credit limit. Line of credit home loans are also known as revolving line of credit or equity line of credit loans.

Why would you use a line of credit?

One of the main reasons to use a line of credit is because it is flexible, your money is at call and you only pay interest on the portion of the loan you've used.

What should I be mindful of?

Generally, a line of credit is more expensive than other home loans, so, if you feel this type of home loan is for you, you might consider having a line of credit for a proportion of your home loan rather than the whole amount.

You also need to be disciplined with a line of credit because you can use it to pay for other purchases (such as holidays, everyday living expenses etc) which means you could end up paying interest to fund your lifestyle for many years to come.
