Use your home’s equity to pay for home improvements, consolidate debt, cover school tuition, or medical bills. You can use the funds to help your children with a down payment to buy a home or to purchase more real estate. Even better, gain peace of mind by being prepared for unexpected expenses with this revolving line of credit with no down payment or annual fee. Our efficient loan process provides faster access to cash that you can use to fund your next project.

What is a HELOC?

 

A Home Equity Line of Credit allows you to borrow a portion of the equity in your home. A HELOC is a revolving line of credit that allows you to make multiple withdrawals up to your credit limit. Like a credit card, when balances are repaid, the amount of available credit increases.  

- A HELOC usually has a variable rate with a borrowing period that is typically 10 years. During this draw period, you can tap into your HELOC as needed and continue to use and repay the funds. You will need to make monthly interest-only payments.

- After the borrowing period ends, the repayment period begins and you can no longer draw on the HELOC. The remaining balance is repaid monthly with principal and interest like a regular loan. The repayment period is usually 20 years.  

- You may be able to convert a portion or all of the balance taken during the draw period from a variable-rate to a fixed-rate loan.

- A HELOC usually features a low introductory interest rate that can last from one to five years. After this promotional rate ends, the interest rate changes to a variable rate that fluctuates as the benchmark prime rate adjusts plus a margin set by a lender.

Existing HELOC accounts are not eligible for these introductory APRs, unless (1) the account has been paid off and closed at least 6 months prior to submitting a new application, or (2) the existing HELOC’s Draw Period is scheduled to end within the next 12 months and a new application has been submitted.
