‘Tis the season for presents, decorations, food, and a whole lot of spending. If you find yourself needing extra funds, consider a home equity loan.

A home equity loan is a specific loan that allows you to borrow against the value of your home. Since the loan is secured by the home, you can generally qualify more easily, borrow larger amounts, and get a low interest rate.

Here are three ways you can use your home equity loan this holiday season.

Home Renovations

Staying at home more often this year? Use your home equity loan to revamp your bathroom or buy new furniture to lounge more comfortably.

When you’re deciding on big improvements, keep in mind what will hold value throughout the years and be worth the cost. If you think the renovations will get in the way of your holiday celebrations, set the majority of the loan funds to the side and do smaller projects to spruce your home up for the time being.

Consolidate Debt

Struggling with debt heading into the holidays? Start your new year on the right foot and use your home equity loan to consolidate high-interest debt or pay off any credit cards.


Plan that awesome family vacation you’ve been dreaming of with your home equity loan funds. You’ll be paid in a lump sum, so you can buy everything you need upfront, or you can save the money to spend while on your trip. Apply for the loan ahead of time so you can prepare accordingly and set the date for later in 2022.

Combine all three of these ideas, pick just one, or do something completely different with your home equity loan funds. Be sure to explore your options to know what is right for you.
