May was the second highest increase in US history
exceeded only by April which was the highest increase in US history...

...and all just as credit card rates are rising.

I have no idea because I never invest in debt.

The problem is that Creditism has become the dominant secular religion,
where almost everyone believes the lie that credit is money,
when in reality credit is only the lack of money.

I don't know a single person who has not taken out a HELOC.  Regardless whether they used it or not, I'm sure that is considered in the consumer credit report.  You would be stupid not to take one out with the inflated home prices just to have the extra line of credit.  Maybe I'm wrong because I'm not really sure how to read their numbers, but a HELOC is revolving credit.  The hair on fire headlines make it read like everyone is maxed out on cards which is not the case.

You can and should take out a HELOC regardless of whether you need it when the home prices are this high.  What you use it for will be what makes you really smart or really dumb.

Also, do not forget that everything people take out large credit lines for has gone up in price tremendously.  This should also inflate the credit numbers.  My point is that while it doesn't look good, it's not econonic Armageddon.

The percentage of ''smart things'' people tend to do with a HELOC is probably in the single digits.

Probably on par with a 35 year old I/O boat used in salt water but in excellent condition with no hidden rot or other issues.

The G19 consumer credit report does not include any loans secured by real-estate so HELOC's are not covered by it.  Also it only includes credit utilized (balance sheet receivables), not unused available credit.  For credit cards it also does not indicate how many accounts are paid off in full every month versus how many have a balance and accrue interest; it's just a snapshot of the total amount due.

Read the footnotes as they explain very well what is included versus not: https://www.federalreserve.gov/Releases/g19/current/

Well if you know for sure you will not have any use for a line of credit at all the in next 10 years, than I guess it's not for you.  It could end up being cheaper than another loan you might take.  If there's so much doom coming, why not have a line on the side ready to go?

Disregard my prevous posts about HELOCs pertaining to this thread anyway.  I looked real quick this morning and I didn't see the info Bubbles posted above me, so my theory is out the window.

A HELOC can be a safety net because the liquidity in your home is the consistency of brick.

Suppose you and your family are happily living out your lives, parents working, kids going to school, etc.  Disaster hits the primary breadwinner - car accident, bad medical diagnosis, whatever.  You burn through your health insurance up to the deductible and maybe end up on short or long-term disability at 66-75% of your regular salary, or even lose your job.  Maybe you decide to sell the home and downsize due to your circumstances, but you'll be able to live in it while you prep it for sale instead of being rushed into a stressful move.

If you apply for the HELOC now, while times are good, and don't tap it, it's available in an emergency while you take the time to get your life back together, with an interest rate a lot lower than you'd pay on credit cards.  It gives you a lot of flexibility that you wouldn't have otherwise.

Rising credit card debt in itself doesn't concern me. People are out buying things which is good for many businesses. Rising credit card debt with declining saving is a warning sign to me.

What I will watch now is credit defaults. If credit card defaults start to rise substantially that would be a time for me to consider moving more to cash.

The graphs don't lie.
Debt spiked when the government stimulus teat dried up.
Capitalism is a dying ideology which has been replaced by Creditism.
Creditism weakens people's character and makes them ripe for tyrrany.

Scroll down in the spreadsheet to line 35.  Granted, much of 2021 was skewed due to the stimmies, but the savings rates for 2022 are dropping pretty quickly.

What I will watch now is credit defaults. If credit card defaults start to rise substantially that would be a time for me to consider moving more to cash.

I agree though they are historically low.  They did increase a bit in FY2022 Q1.

HELOCs can be and have been canceled in mass by banks in bad economic times. when economic risk increases bank come under pressure to reduce their exposure to it. having unused credit on the books is a risk.

i do like the idea of having an unused HELOC. but please don't let a HELOC be the leg that your safety net is standing on.

This is a wise approach.
You always want to operate from a strong financial position,
and there is no stronger financial position than solvency.

I saw a graph of the savings rate and it had two spikes which corresponded to the two main stimulus payments, but just as quickly reverted to the original downward trend as if no money had been received.

I think of savings like gasoline. Is it wise to drive around on a nearly empty tank?

Thats actually not a bad analogy

enough gas "cash" to keep the car functional "cover your expenses for a set period of time"

but don't fill your trunk with gas it will leak out / inflation will drain your cash if its just sitting there.

I don't understand why you wouldn't have a HELOC if you own a house and it's free and clear with the entire mortgage paid off. The money just sits in your account costing you nothing if you don't use it. I keep one for 100k just because I can. I'm debt free.

Why? Because there is almost always one person in a family that can't leave said money alone and just sees ''more shit'' or a vacation sitting there untouched.

People tend to get a HELOC because they intend to use it for something.

I have savings, why do I need a HELOC if I have money elsewhere?

And if you have your house paid off, pretty much any financial institution will give you a HELOC forever because, unless it's a shit hole, it has actual value with no one else holding paper on it.

Depleted savings and these "shark cards" as I like to call them at at THIRTY PERCENT INTEREST.  Like..okay, peoples savings are dwindled to nothing, of course they are going to activate these cards to use to offset and supplement inflation, with no savings..and will never get the cards paid off, at least not in the short term.

Sigh.  HELOC loans are absolutely not included in the G19.  Neither are mortgages or home-equity loans.
https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/g19/about.htm:
Part I. What Consumer Credit Data Are Available on the G.19 Statistical Release, "Consumer Credit," and How Are These Data Calculated?

The G.19 Statistical Release, "Consumer Credit," reports outstanding credit extended to individuals for household, family, and other personal expenditures, excluding loans secured by real estate. Total consumer credit comprises two major types: revolving and nonrevolving. Revolving credit plans may be unsecured or secured by collateral and allow a consumer to borrow up to a prearranged limit and repay the debt in one or more installments. Credit card loans comprise most of revolving consumer credit measured in the G.19, but other types, such as prearranged overdraft plans, are also included. Nonrevolving credit is closed-end credit extended to consumers that is repaid on a prearranged repayment schedule and may be secured or unsecured. To borrow additional funds, the consumer must enter into an additional contract with the lender. Consumer motor vehicle and education loans comprise the majority of nonrevolving credit, but other loan types, such as boat loans, recreational vehicle loans, and personal loans, are also included.

The G.19 also reports selected terms of credit, including interest rates on new car loans, personal loans, and credit card plans at commercial banks. Historically, the G.19 also included series that measure the terms of credit for motor vehicle loans at finance companies. In the first quarter of 2011, publication of these series was temporarily suspended because of the deterioration of their statistical foundation. The statistical foundation is in the process of being improved, and publication will resume as soon as possible.


Heck go to the link and read through everything; it's long and will likely tell you way more than you wanted to know about the report.  It's all about credit cards, auto loans, education loans, etc.  Not one word about real-estate loans, other than they are not included in the report data.
