Home Equity

If you are looking for ways to finance a major purchase, home improvement, medical expense, wedding or college education, a home equity loan could be your solution. We offer two types of second mortgages – Home Equity and Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). Both are secured by your property.

With rates as low as 5.25% APR1 and closing cost credits of up to $5002, either can be a smart financial resource for any project or purpose. Our mortgage consultants are here to help you navigate your options. We also have a helpful lending guide and checklist for new borrowers.

Home Equity Line of Credit (Special Rate for New Accounts - 2.99% APR for 12 Months*)

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is worth considering when you don’t need the entire amount of money all at once.

You can establish a line of credit up to 90% of your home’s current value, less any outstanding balances, and use that line to withdraw funds as you need them (simply transfer the funds into your savings or checking through online banking). The advantage to a HELOC is that you only pay interest on the amount you are using, not the entire line of credit. This loan is perfect for paying for periodic expenses like medical costs, home improvements or college education.
