Home Equity Loans
A Home Equity Loan can be the answer for a variety of financial needs.
Home equity loans are used for a variety of purposes from home improvements, tuition, new vehicles, even vacations. Many members find Home Equity Loans beneficial in paying off debt and consolidating high interest credit cards to one lower payment.
We offer two types of Home Equity Loans, both are easy to apply for and allow you the flexibility to use the money for virtually any purpose. Whether you are looking to finance a home improvement project, pay for your child’s education, buy a new car, or consolidate credit card debt, a home equity can help make dreams come true – plus, there are NO prepayment penalties (provided that you do not close out your account within one year of start date). In most cases, the interest is tax deductible too! (Consult a tax professional for details).
A Fixed-Rate Home Equity Loan
With a Fixed-Rate Home Equity Loan, you can borrow up to 90% (up to $250,000) of your home’s equity and have a choice of repayment terms up to 180 months. Your rate is determined by the Prime Lending Rate at its index plus a margin, credit history and the number of years the loan is financed. Home equity loan can be used as a main mortgage; however, you can’t purchase a home using a home equity loan, you can only use a home equity loan to refinance. To make this even more affordable, we’ll waive up to $500 in closing costs when you borrow $10,000 or more!
A Variable Rate Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
Rates are determined by your credit history and the Loan to Value (LTV) ratio. We’ve simplified the process to use your HELOC. To take an advance, you’ll simply use the checkbook provided so that you can pay for purchases on the spot when you need to. That’s how simple it is to take an advance on the loan!
