The loan amount is based onrepparttar amount of equity inrepparttar 150294 home, butrepparttar 150295 funds aren’t dispersed all at once. Instead,repparttar 150296 borrower is given a checkbook, a special credit card, or both and can use them to draw upon funds at his or her leisure. Payments only apply when money is actually borrowed, andrepparttar 150297 repayment plans can be arranged with both fixed and adjustable interest rates, depending onrepparttar 150298 lender. This is ideal financing for someone who has purchased a fixer-upper home that needs a variety of changes, repairs, or modifications.
