A Better Way to Borrow

Use your home’s equity for unexpected repairs, improvements or for the projects you’ve been picturing for years.


Home Equity Borrowing Options

Home Equity Loans

A Home Equity Loan (HELOAN) is great for when you have a home improvement project in mind and have a good idea of what it will cost. You then borrow a set amount of money at a fixed rate and term.

Use your Home Equity Loan for things like refinancing, remodeling, or paying for some other large expense.

Home Equity Line of Credit

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a great option when you need more flexibility. You’ll have access to a pool of money and then you only borrow what you need, when you need it.

A HELOC does have a credit limit and a specified borrowing period, typically 10 years. During that time, you can tap into your line of credit to withdraw money (up to your credit limit) as you need it. Use the funds only when you need to, and you can continue to use the funds as you repay them. Better yet, you only pay interest on the money you use, which is a nice feature of a HELOC.

Which home equity product is right for you?

A HELOC gives you the flexibility of a financial backstop that’s there when you need it. If your roof needs repair or a tuition bill comes due, drawing on a Home Equity Line of Credit can be a convenient solution.

On the flip side, with a HELOAN, you get a lump sum of cash at loan closing and know how much your monthly payments will be and how long it will take to pay off the loan.
