Re: $7000 question?? confusing...

HELOC = large amounts of liquid cash. Costs almost nothing to access it. Reasonable interest rates. I don't have one, but I may get one just for the liquidity. It's easier (and usually cheaper!) to borrow from a HELOC (or a margin loan, in my case) for short-term liquidity than to sell assets to generate cash.

Re: $7000 question?? confusing...


i agree with you about finding anything that can fit this "no risk/no effort" deal but i believe with the cc deal, it is as low as a risk/effort as i can get. (i guess, i am trying to convince myself that) and it works even nicer if you don't debt.

of course, just mine 2 cents theory..
