Home Equity Loan for down payment

1 Reply

I am considering to invest in a commerical property with great cashflow but do not have enough for down payment (100k). Even with the home equity loan payments at current interest rate, the cashflow is still positive. Is this a wise decision or are there any better alternatives?
