Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
A HELOC allows you to utilize your home's equity as a revolving line of credit. A HELOC offers flexibility to borrow as you need for any reason, up to a set maximum credit limit. This is a great option if you are unsure of the total amount needed and it leaves the door open to access more funds over a period of time.
As you pay down the balance of your line of credit, your funds become available to use again. Borrow the funds you need and repay the funds you use. Funds are replenished as you pay down your balance. You'll only pay interest on the amount you use, plus, you'll be borrowing at a lower interest rate than most personal loans or credit cards.
HELOC Loans can help with...
- Debt consolidation
- Home improvements
- Or for almost any reason you need cash
