Where to open a HELOC?
I know there are tons of discussions on BP about HELOCs, but I haven't seen much about where to open one. I have about 70-80k of equity in my property in Cleveland and am thinking of accessing that to buy a home in St Petersburg FL. I already have the property picked out that I plan to purchase. Does any have any recommendations on where to open a HELOC? Any good or bad experiences?
On a related note, do most lenders accept HELOC as down payments?
