Can I get a home equity loan with Bad Credit. i OWN My home and its fully paid for?

I went to the bank today and tried to get a home equity loan but they turned me down because I had bad credit. I have a stable job that I worked at for over 5 years, I own my home and it is fully paid for. I drive a 2006 Mustang Gt but they still turned me down because of bad credit. I wanted to get the cash to fix my home becuase it need new pipes and a heating system, so i wasnt going to go blow the money. My credit isnt super bad but its still not good, is it possible for me to get a home equity loan without good credit. i DONT want any online loan stuff or any stuff like that. I LIVE in a small town with not that many banks and i need this loan before winter. cAN I GET THIS LOAN WITH MY BAD CREDIT?

Maybe what you should seek is a line of credit on the equity in your home.

Yes, you can get a loan on basically any credit if there is sufficient equity. Local banks often turn people down or give them higher rates based on thier asset pool. Try a mortgage broker. They can get the money for you.

Yes, you can get the loan with bad credit. In spite of the danger of losing the home if you are unable to pay, many still go for this method because it is open for anybody who has a home and can obtain a big loan. The interest rates are quite economical and this can be made a tax deductible.
