Open the Door to More Possibility.

Have a large purchase, remodel, or home improvement project coming up?

You can use the equity you have in your home to help pay for these expenses. Our Home Equity options are great for planned and unplanned expenses, and you don’t have to use the money on your home. Costs of some large one-time expenses can be difficult to cover using savings alone.

 

Popular ways to use your home’s equity:

  • Home Repairs or Improvements
  • Debt Consolidation
  • Education Costs
  • Emergency Expenses
  • Vacations
  • Weddings and more

  • Fixed interest rate.1
  • Low closing costs.2
  • 6 year and 12 year terms available.
  • Borrow up to 80% of your home’s current value minus any existing first mortgage balance.

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)3

  • Revolving source of funds, much like a credit card, that you can access as you choose.

  • Low closing costs.2
  • Borrow up to 80% of your home’s current value minus any existing first mortgage balance.

What's the Difference Between a HELOC and Home Equity Loan?

HELOCs are revolving credit (like a credit card) that come with variable interest rates and have variable minimum payment amounts. A HELOC may be a better option if you want some flexibility. You get to choose how much or how little of your credit line you use, and only pay interest on the money you borrow.

Home Equity Loans come with fixed payments and a fixed interest rate for the term of the loan. A Home Equity Loan could be a better option if you need funds in a lump sum for a large project. It could also be beneficial for securing a lower fixed rate that could potentially save you money in the long run.
