Velocity Bank! Does it ACTUALLY help you pay off your mortgage faster using a HELOC? Can you use a HELOC to pay off your mortgage? In this video, we’re going to explain the Velocity Banking Strategy Step by Step. We’ll illustrate how does the Velocity Banking concept work, how it ACTUALLY saves you money and time, and at the end of the video, I’ll leave you with a FREE Velocity Banking Calculator to download: FREE VELOCITY BANKING HELOC CALCULATOR: http://chopmymortgage.com
So how does the Velocity Banking Strategy actually works? Here in the Kwak Brothers, we call it the Accelerated Banking Strategy. To start off, this strategy does rely on having a line of credit – like a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) This strategy WILL work with a 1st lien HELOC, 2nd lien HELOC, Personal Line of Credit (PLOC), and even some cases – credit cards. A HELOC has features that mortgages don’t and the BIG feature is the “Open-Ended” feature. So here’s the “traditional” version of the velocity banking strategy: (2nd Lien HELOC Version) You take a chunk of a HELOC and do a principal payment against the mortgage. Essentially, you did a balance transfer from the mortgage to the HELOC. From there, you’re going to put ALL of your income and savings into the HELOC. Remember, you can ALWAYS draw the money back out from the HELOC anytime you want. Think of the HELOC as your new savings account. This effect allows for the average daily balance to go down – thus you pay less interest. With the money you DIDN’T pay for interest – now goes to principal which pays down the HELOC faster than the mortgage. The next version of the Velocity Banking Strategy is using a 1st lien HELOC instead. With this version of the Velocity Banking strategy, you’re completely replacing your mortgage with a 1st lien HELOC. Once you replace your mortgage with a HELOC, you do a similar pattern with the 2nd lien HELOC Velocity Banking. You’ll dump all of your income into the HELOC to lower the average daily balance. Here’s a bit of a bonus tip that I DON’T regularly share on YouTube… I only share this with my students and coaching clients… You can also use a credit card to hold all expenses and operating expenses for 30 days while your income stays parked in the HELOC. This allows for the HELOC balance to stay low for a long time which means you’ll end up paying less interest. After the 30 day period, you’ll use the HELOC to completely pay off the credit card so that you don’t end up paying any interest on the credit.
