Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOC)
Turn equity into ongoing financing for just about anything.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) Loans – Is a loan, using your home as collateral, that lets you borrow up to a certain amount, rather than a set dollar amount.
A HELOC acts like a credit card: You are allowed to borrow up to your credit limit during the draw period. During that time you can withdraw money as you need it. As you pay off the principal, your credit revolves and you can use it again. This gives you more flexibility than a fixed-rate home equity loan. HELOCs have a variable interest rate that fluctuates over the life of the loan. Payments will vary depending on the interest rate, the term remaining, and how much credit you have used.
Convert the equity in your home into cash you can use for:
- Debt consolidation
- Home remodel projects
- Education expenses
- Major life events
- And much more
