Should I Use Home Equity for a Major Purchase?

When making a major purchase, using a home equity loan or a line of credit is an alternative to financing offers that are often provided by a seller or manufacturer. In such purchases, buyers often have the option of taking either the seller-provided financing offer or a rebate on their purchase. Taking the rebate and using the equity in your home may provide a better alternative to the seller financing.
