Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

We can help you make your house your own.

A home-equity line of credit (HELOC) is a variable-rate loan that works similar to a credit card where you are pre-approved for a certain spending limit and can withdraw money when you need it to complete special projects or large purchases. Monthly payments vary based on the amount of money borrowed and the current interest rate. Like fixed-rate loans, the HELOC has a set term. When the end of the term is reached, the outstanding loan amount must be repaid in full.

Benefits for our Members

Home-equity loans provide an easy source of cash. The interest rate on a home-equity loan  although higher than that of a first mortgage  is much lower than on credit cards and other consumer loans. As such, the number-one reason consumers borrow against the value of their homes via a fixed-rate home equity loan is to pay off credit card balances (according to bankrate.com). Interest paid on a home-equity loan is also tax deductible, as we noted earlier. So, by consolidating debt with the home-equity loan, consumers get a single payment, a lower interest rate and tax benefits.
