Given that the average credit card interest rate is 15 percent, and the average home gains as much as $15,000 a year in equity annually, quite often it makes sense to take some of the equity from your home and pay down some of your high-interest debts, it often makes sense to do so. Right now, mortgage interest rates around around 4 percent, which will represent a significant saving on most other types of debt. Instead of having write separate checks for the mortgage, each credit card, a car loan and a student loan, a debtor can instead write a single check to pay everything and do so at a much lower interest rate. Also, unlike all those other debts, mortgage interest is far more likely to be tax deductible.
