Is Debt Consolidation with a Home Equity Loan the best Method to Become Debt Free?
By Mary Stasiewicz

Some may argue that the easiest way to put your home in jeopardy is to try to consolidate credit card debt by taking a home equity loan to pay off your credit card debt. While financial institutions will advertise the advantages of paying off high interest credit card debt with a home equity loan they may not inform you of all of the ramifications of using your home as collateral.

They will also advise you that there may be a tax advantage to this type of loan and that paying off the credit card debt will improve your credit score but it is a good idea to consult a tax advisor about these issues when considering a home equity loan. Although your credit score will improve if you pay off your credit card debt, it is not necessarily a sufficient reason to take the risk.

It is not always a good idea to tie your debt in with your home. It may get you thought the immediate financial need but if you run into problems down the road you will be wise to have the security of your home intact. If job security is an issue, and you do not need to have reserves in the bank, you may want to hold off on using your home equity.
