Should You Use Home Equity or Savings to Pay for a Remodeling Project?

When you’re planning a remodeling project or home renovation, it’s a good idea to start by determining how you’ll pay for it. Usually that comes down to taking out a loan or using your savings.

Some people may have enough cash saved to consider paying for their remodeling project or home renovation out of pocket. But just because you have enough savings to pay for your home remodeling project doesn’t necessarily mean you should rule out either a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit (HELOC). Tapping into home equity can be a smart move, under certain circumstances. Your own individual financial situation will determine what payment plan you should choose. So check out this episode of Big Money Real Estate for my tips on when to tap into home equity and whether to choose a home equity loan or HELOC to pay for a home remodeling project.
