Determine the HELOC amount you may qualify to receive.
The line of credit is based on a percentage of the value of your home. The more your home is worth, the larger the line of credit potentially would be (depending on, among other things, other debt you may have). Thus, any line of credit you receive will take into account any outstanding mortgages you might have as well as other debt. This includes first mortgages, second mortgages and any other debt you have secured by your home.
