Personal Investor: 4 ways HELOCs can make life easier
Canada has a high number of people who have home equity lines of credit (HELOC). Frequently, these people only pay the interest on these loans each month, which has caused the average HELOC to grow to $70,000. For disciplined borrowers, a HELOC can be beneficial, for instance, to consolidate debt as well as set up an emergency fund.
