Replace Your Mortgage with a heloc

HELOC interest will generally higher than your mortgage. Would you refinance your current loan with a higher interest loan?

Someone asked the same question before. Rather than taking out HELCO at higher interest and paying off the mortgage, and then paying off the HELOC in 5/7 years, why dont you pay off your mortgage in 5/7 years? You would pay less interest for 5/7 years on your original loan rather than HELCO. And there are other costs associated with HELOC.

HELOC should be used if you are going to earn more return on your loan than you are paying in the interest.

Hope that makes sense. 

I did that and it works great for me. There is a strategy, requiring self discipline, you need to use to make it work but it works great.

PM me and we can jump on a call  where I would be happy to share the logic.
