Use the equity you've built in your home for major purchases, repairs and renovations.
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a revolving line of credit2 secured by your home, allowing you to access the available equity you have in your home. The amount you borrow is based on the difference between the debt secured by your home and its market value.
With an equity line, you can borrow as much or as little as you need, whenever you need it, up to a credit limit established at closing. As you repay your outstanding balance, the amount of available credit is replenished, which means you can borrow against it again, if needed.
As a homeowner, you can tap into the equity you’ve built with a revolving line of credit to finance home renovations. We provide easy access to your account online, through convenience checks and transfers, and automatic payments can be deducted from your checking account.
If you are working to pay off multiple debts, using the equity in your home could be a good option to help you consolidate your payments. Especially if your other debts – like student loans and credit cards – have a higher interest rate. Using a Home Equity Line of Credit to consolidate your debt could help you save on the amount of interest you pay and help you simplify your payments into one.
If you have built up equity in your home, you can use it to help you with life’s big purchases, like new cars, vacations, or an unexpected emergency. With a Home Equity Line of Credit, you can use the equity you’ve built in your home to help you.
