what is a decent interest rate on a HELOC (home equity line of credit). ? we have very good credit and our?
household income is around 130k. we have a mortgage loan of 280,000. our HELOC interest rates is the PRIME RATE plus 3/8ths.
we got this home equity line of credit with Countrywide Financial. Our mortgage is with JP Morgan Chase. I’m wondering if I could have done better on the HELOC by going straight to JP Morgan Chase for the HELOC and possibly might have avoided the $ 500 closing fee? Is this a bad deal I have with Countrywide? Do others know if Countrywide is competitive. I should have compared more before I got the loan. Does Countrywide loan to risky customers and therefore expect a higher interest rate from all its customers?
