HELOC question

I'm looking to get a home equity line of credit for approximately $15,000 for some needed renovations and then paying it off after selling the home. I plan to have the home on the market in 9-10 months. Is it possible to get a heloc without paying closing costs or a prepayment penalty?

You may want to check with a local bank or credit union.  Since they can do your loan as a portfolio loan (they hold it), they have easier guidelines and less  paperwork.

It will be hard to find a no closing cost Heloc that does not charge a fee if the line is closed before 36 months. That charge is typically around $800.
