How to Use a Flexibility Line of Credit for Home Improvement Expenses

In life’s unpredictable journey, there are moments that catch us off guard, especially when it comes to the sanctuary we call home. A leaky roof during a storm, a sudden electrical issue, or a plumbing emergency – these unforeseen events can turn our haven into a source of stress. That’s where our Line of Credit can assist, helping to provide you with an additional option for support.

What is a Line of Credit and How Does it Work?

A Line of Credit is a financing option that provides you with a predetermined credit limit that you can access as needed. It works similarly to a credit card, but instead of charging purchases to a physical card, you can draw amounts up to your approved credit limit.

After you apply and get approved for a Line of Credit with Flexibility, you can decide when and how much you want to borrow from your approved Line of Credit to cover home repair expenses. You can make draws up to your credit limit and making periodic payments towards your Line of Credit allows you to have an option to draw funds from in times of need.

What is the Difference Between a Line of Credit and a Home Equity Loan?

Lines of credit and home equity loans function differently from one another:

Line of Credit:

It is a revolving credit line with a predetermined credit limit. You can borrow and repay multiple times within the limit, and you only pay interest on the amount you borrow. As you repay, the credit becomes available again.

Home Equity Loan:

It is often a lump-sum loan where you receive the entire loan amount upfront. You make fixed monthly payments with interest over a specified term. Unlike a Line of Credit, in many cases you cannot borrow additional funds once the loan is disbursed.
