Home Equity Financing Options

Two Ways to Borrow* 

Home Equity Line of Credit

A Home Equity Line of Credit makes a maximum loan amount available to you so you may access the funds when you need it, much like a credit card, but without the card. 

  • Interest-only minimum monthly payments
  • Lines from $10,000 to $250,000
  • Borrow up to 85% of your home’s equity
  • Five-year draw period to access credit
  • Easy access by phone, Internet or with checks

    Fixed-Rate Home Equity Loan

    A Fixed-Rate Home Equity Loan provides you with a maximum loan amount that you pay fixed monthly payments over a set period of time.  It's ideal if you need to borrow for a one-time purchase like a home improvement project.

    • No annual fee
    • Borrow from $10,000 to $250,000
    • Borrow up to 180 months
    • Borrow up to 85% of your home’s equity

    Both the Home Equity Line of Credit and the Fixed-Rate Home Equity loan provide savings that add up.

    • No pre-payment penalties
    • No application fees
    • Tax breaks (for more information, consult your tax advisor)
