Leverage Equity to Eliminate High Interest Debt
In a society so dependent upon revolving credit, it’s not surprising that a large percentage of Americans fall into credit card debt. There are certainly no positives involved in racking up thousands in interest while attempting to pay off that debt, especially when minimum interest rates barely scratch the surface of the loan. But if you’re like the 41.2% of American households that hold credit card debt (at an average interest rate of 15%), you’ll be happy to hear some good news: With the power of your home, you can pay off those credit cards and dump those sky-high interest rates and huge monthly expenses—all while consolidating all your balances into one affordable monthly payment.
Your home’s equity is key. That’s the amount your home is worth over the current balance of your home loan. When you tap into your home’s equity with a strategic refinance, you can pay off debts faster and pay less interest in the process. It’s a win-win situation for homeowners and can provide the stability that your family needs.
Imagine a life free of high-interest debt. Make it a reality by tapping into your home’s equity and strategizing your refinance today.
