Home equity rates for Aug. 21, 2014

 

I'm Greg McBride, chief analyst with Bankrate.com, and here is your weekly look at home equity rates.

Home equity rates jumped, reverting to levels seen earlier in the year. The average home equity line of credit is 4.94 percent, the highest since March, and the fixed-rate home equity loan climbed back to a two-month high of 6.22 percent.
