Debt Consolidation & Your Credit Score

Taking on debt is something almost everybody needs to do in their life to pay for major expenses like university or vehicles. Of course, homes are almost always the most expensive things people buy.

With the average home price in Ontario now approaching $1 million, everyone needs to take out a years-long mortgage and incur debt. And with major grocery chains raising prices while making record profits, ordinary people need to be extra resourceful just to afford basic essentials.

Meanwhile, the job market faces uncertainty, inflation is rising, and interest rates are beginning to climb. Don’t feel bad or guilty for having debts, as if you’ve done something wrong! You shouldn’t feel overwhelmed or pressured either, no matter your current credit score.

You should feel relieved to know that homeowners always have ways to tap into the equity they’ve built and improve their long-term finances.

Debt Consolidation Loans

Coming up with the money every month to pay off a loan is the main challenge, but sometimes it isn’t easy to track the various payments required. Staying ahead of monthly payments is hard, and if you’re struggling, feel comforted to know you’re not the only one.

One missed payment, and suddenly you face late fees, interest charges, and other harsh and needless penalties that begin to snowball quickly. Reorganizing and refinancing current high-interest debts to make them more manageable is what debt consolidation is all about.

Tap Into Your Equity

Homeowners put a lot of work into paying off their mortgages. It only makes sense that they should be able to leverage their hard-earned equity in times of financial stress.

Our experienced team members will outline all your credit options to find what works best. The difference between healthy and unhealthy debt is immense. We try to make every household debt-free by utilizing your healthy debt to its fullest in our objective, personalized financial services.

Home Equity Loans Versus Home Equity Lines of Credit

The two most common ways to access your home’s equity now are home equity loans and home equity lines of credit, commonly known as HELOCs.

Home equity loans let borrowers access a lump sum of money, whose rates are determined by the difference between their home’s current market value and how much remains on their mortgage. A HELOC is similar in that it also uses your home as collateral, except the borrower gets access to a line of credit and, therefore, only pays back interest on what they borrow when they borrow it.

There are no universal solutions. Which of these two options is more suitable depends on your unique circumstances. Contact Burke Financial today, and we’ll be happy to walk you through your options!
