Now is a Good Time to Borrow Money

• Current news headlines are focusing on the subprime crisis and the record amount of foreclosures.

• Many individuals think that now is a bad time to borrow money for either home improvements or first time home purchases.

• The worse thing consumers could do is wait until prices and interest rates go up and they can’t afford to remodel or purchase a home.

• As title sponsor of the Utah Valley Home & Remodeling Expo we hope to provide the community of expo goers with fast, affordable, and convenient loan solutions.

• We will have Home Loan and Consumer Loan Specialists on site both days to pre-approve, discuss options, and help consumers know what their loan options are.

Can I get approved for a Home Equity Loan?

Due to the tightening of the mortgage regulations, many consumers don’t think they can get approved for a loan, but they can. Why?

• The tighter regulations have been in response to high risk loans such as no proof of income and 100 percent financing.

• Applying for a home equity loan is easy and often the process takes less than a week.

• A home equity loan lets homeowners borrow money by leveraging the equity in their homes Investments
What can a Home Equity Loan be used for?

The loan is simply allowing you to draw the “equity” from your home in the form of a loan. How you use the money is entirely up to you. Some examples of what people commonly use their equity for:

• Home Remodeling

• Purchases of Cars or Recreational Property

• A Child’s College Tuition

• Debt Consolidation

• Medical Emergencies

• Cosmetic Surgery

• Investments
