How to Determine Cost on Equity Loans

Lenders will often base the loans on the borrower’s base salary from his employment and other
incomes. The lenders will calculate at times „100% of guaranteed bonuses or 50% of regular
bonuses divided by overtime.“

Lenders will also factor in deductions from multiple incomes, and apply it to the salary from the
annual repayments „to any existing loans.“ However, if the homeowner has repaid the loan amount
within the next year, the lender often overlooks the gesture.

Most lenders will offer high „multiples“ and loans, reaching four times the base income. Few lenders
will offer as much as five times the base income, depending on the borrower’s job. Despite the offers,
homebuyers should consider their income carefully to determine if they can repay the debts.
Homebuyers would be wise to consider an increase in equity loans, since the rates of interest
constantly change over the course of a year. By law, the lenders must adhere to the rates of interest
set by the federal government.

If you take out an equity loan, you must remember that the loan is intended to payoff your first
mortgage and then start repayment on the pending loan. Lenders require borrowers in most instances
to pay „5 to 10%“ upfront deposits, as a source of guarantee. The larger amount of deposit will
decrease your interest rates and mortgage payments in most instances.

On the other hand, if you do not have money for a deposit, you may want to consider the 100%
equity loans, since these loans will incorporate the deposit and additional fees and cost into the
monthly installments. The downside is that the interest is higher, and often so are the mortgage
repayments. If you are a risk factor, then the lender may require you to sign a „guarantor to satisfy
the lenders concerns.“
