Financing for Individuals

Home Equity Line of Credit

Financing with a home equity line of credit allows an individual to take out a loan at a relatively low interest rate. As of 2015, these rates are around 4% or even less. As it’s name suggests, a home equity line of credit depends on equity being present in the home.

Because home equity loans and lines of credit have such low interest rates, they can be suitable for larger loans and longer terms.

Home equity lines of credit are typically sourced from one’s usual bank, though not necessarily the one where one has a mortgage.

“Energy Loans” by AFC First

Energy Loans by AFC First have the main advantage of not being tied to home equity.  Instead, the loan is based on debt level and income.  These loans have higher interest rates than do the home equity based loans and therefore carry a higher interest rate.  They are most popular with smaller loans and faster payback which together limit the amount of interest paid on the loans.
