Q on Equity line
I apologize if this is not the correct group for posting this message.
I think a few readers here may have faced this situation.
We have a rental property ( townhome) that is fully paid up.
It has been continually rented for many years.
I would like to get an equity line- just in case the situation arises
where we need cash.
I called Schwab and they indicated that they do not have equity lines
on "rental property".
Can anyone please let me know which banks / institutions offer such
lines of equity on "rental properties"?
and if so are there any pointers ie do's and dont's.
The property is in the SF, Bay Area, CA.
Thanks in advance,

inexpensive. They're going to evaluate it as a business/commercial
loan, not personal in all likelihood unless you have a developed
relationship in a (relatively) small, personalized institution. If
it's one of the big boy's branch offices and all you have had is a
checking account w/ routine activity you're probably SOL in the
