Many people who took out Home Equity Lines Of Credit 2 years ago have seen their rates rise dramatically. Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs) are directly tied to the prime rate. In 2004 the prime rate was as low as 6%, thus so was the rates on HELOCs. In 2006 that rate had gone up to 8.25%. Many have seen their monthly payments increase substantially because of this. Homeowners are refinancing out of their HELOCs and combining it with their first mortgage into a more stable fixed rate.
Many customers choose to take an ARM because their credit was poor, or they didn't have any money for a down payment, or some other reason that prevented them from getting the best fixed rates. If you are one of these people and you have been working on your credit for the past two or three years, and your home has been gaining equity you have many more options available to you now.
