I'm considering taking out a Home Equity Loan to do some repairs to my home. I'd love to hear pros and cons to this. What I want done will cost under $5,000. Would I be better off to charge this to a credit card, set up a payment plan with the company, or take the line of credit which is at least 10 times the amount I need, although the bank says it counts as a mortgage for tax purposes.
I appreciate any ideas or thoughts.
