Home equity is the difference between the appraised value of your home and the amount you still owe on your mortgage loan. You can borrow that equity to pay for things like college tuition, a kitchen remodel, or even an unexpected emergency.
If you’re a homeowner, you’re in luck—you can tap into your home’s equity to get that extra money for whatever you need.
We offer both fixed-rate loans and home equity lines of credit with:
- Flexible terms
- 100% loan to value
- Quick closings
- No closing costs*
Fixed-Rate Home Equity Loan
A home equity loan allows you to borrow a lump sum amount based on the value of the equity in your home. You will make fixed payments over the term of the loan.
- Rates as low as 2.75% APR**
- May be tax deductible (consult your tax advisor)
- Good for large, expensive projects where a lump sum is necessary
- Fixed interest rate for the term of the loan.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
This option works more like a credit card. A home equity line of credit allows you to borrow money whenever you need it during the term instead of taking out a larger sum all at once. You can draw as little or as much as you’d like from your line of credit and make payments on the amount you’ve drawn. This could be good to have for emergencies since you don’t need to use it if you don’t want to.
- Good for emergencies
- Works like a credit card
- Low variable rates
- Fast, reliable service
