Home Equity Loans

What is a Home Equity Loan?


A home equity loan is a type of loan in which the borrower uses the equity of his or her home as collateral. The loan amount is based on the value of your property as determined by an appraisal of the property, ordered by TrueCore.  Home equity loans are often used to finance major expenses such as home repairs, medical bills, or college education.
