Home Equity

  • 5.49% (line of credit)
  • 7.08% (loan)

Here's a look at the state of home equity rates from Bankrate.com's weekly national survey of large banks and thrifts conducted Dec. 1, 2010.

In contrast to the relatively large hikes in 15- and 30-year mortgage rates, loans based on home equity rose only modestly this week.

The Bankrate national survey found that home equity loans rose 3 basis points, to 7.08 percent. A basis point is one-hundredth of 1 percentage point.

Meanwhile, the home equity lines of credit, or HELOCs, were even more stable, climbing just 1 basis point, to 5.49 percent.
