Bad Credit Home Equity Loans

Aug 17, 2007
If you are in the unfortunate situation of looking as loans for people with bad credit, take heart. You are not alone. More and more people need to take out loans for some financial need, and one possible source is a home equity loan.

People end up with a poor credit rating for a myriad of reasons. Late payments and bankruptcy are obvious factors. Not so obvious is the debt to income ratio factor. If you happen to have college loans that are around $20,000 and marry someone with the same amount of college loan debt, you both may now have poor credit. Even if you own a home and have a pristine credit history a large loan taken out for an emergency will greatly affect your credit score. If your credit score is lower than you like, the good news is that it doesn't have to stay that way forever! There are many loans for people with bad credit and a low credit credit home equity loan is one place to start.

A home's equity is the current fair market value of the home, minus any mortgage payments left to be paid. What this boils down to for a lender is what they can get for the home if they have to seize it from the owner for failure to pay. Even with a low credit score, home equity loans are available for up to 90% of the equity in the home. Most lenders are comfortable giving home equity loans for people with poor credit. Since there is collateral involved finding such a loan shouldn't be a problem. The tricky part will be finding a bad credit loan with an interest rate that you're comfortable with.

Reasons behind taking home equity loan vary greatly. Currently, homeowners are opting to take their home's equity and then reinvest it in their home through updating and remodeling. Or, maybe someone is able to pay off a sizeable amount of credit card or school loan debt with a home equity loan. Not only will it be a relief to pay off all your other creditors, your interest rate will go no where but up!

If you're looking at loans for people with bad credit and own a home, a equity loan is a good option. Interest rates will be lower than for any other loan you could get and it's relatively easy for a homeowner with any credit rating to get one of these loans. Regardless of your reasoning behind getting a equity loan, be careful as to whom you choose as your lender. Read the fine print and plan a strategy to increase your credit score with the home loan. Your financial security will increase and your credit score will thank you.
