While credit cards and small loans gave you the luxury of buying the things you needed when you needed them, over the years the monthly bills have swelled to monstrous proportions. To make matters worse, little of the monthly payments you make are being applied to the actual costs of the items you purchased--not that you can remember what those items were. Maybe you should look into getting a Phoenix home equity loan.
Following years of drilling the importance of attending college into your child's head, he or she is now ready to move on to an institute of higher learning--and you're looking at an average of $25,000 a year in tuition for a private four-year school. A home equity loan could make it affordable.
After waiting 30 years for burnt orange Formica and lime green appliances to come back into style, you've finally thrown in the towel and decided it's time to remodel the kitchen. A Phoenix home equity loan could make it happen.
In today's unstable economy, pulling together the money for any one of the aforementioned endeavors could leave even the most well off Phoenix residents emptying their savings accounts and searching beneath their couch cushions for loose change. But there's no need to close your account or dismantle your furniture just yet. If you're a Valley homeowner, the solution to these financial dilemmas--and countless others--could be right under your nose. In fact, there's a good chance you're sitting in it right now.
With a home equity loan, you can put the money you've already paid into your house to work for you. Consolidate your high-interest credit cards into one monthly payment; send your child off to college without having to auction off everything you own; or put an end to the neighbors' "Brady Bunch" jokes by bringing your kitchen--or any other room in the house, for that matter--into the 21st century. And do it at an interest rate that's often tax deductible and lower than most credit cards, lines of credit or conventional bank loans.
In Phoenix and the surrounding area, obtaining a home equity loan might be easier than you think. Once you determine how much equity you have in your home, essentially all you need in proof of home ownership, your mortgage paperwork and proof of employment. Because home equity loans are secured to your house, getting approved--even if you have bad credit--might not be as challenging as you'd think.
