Home equity loan/ Line of credit or Mortgage?
I am in debt and need a large amount of money to pay off high interest revolving credit. My family members will allow me to “purchase” there home (which is paid off) and use the funds to pay off my debt. My question is: is better to “buy” the property with a mortgage or purchase the home for $ 1.00 and take out a home equity loan. I am also concerned about the tax consequences for each situation. Thanks alot.
