Use the equity in your home and we’ll pay your closing costs.1
Home Equity Line of Credit
Use the equity in your home to pay for home improvement projects, college tuition or debt consolidation. A Home Equity Line of Credit allows you to borrow money for up to 10 years from the equity you have in your home any time you need it. Plus, you'll have up to 15 years to repay the balance. Your monthly payment is based only on the amount being used.2
You'll save money with an introductory rate of 2.99% APR3 for the first 12 months and then a low variable rate thereafter.
With a second mortgage, you can take advantage of the equity in your home to pay for a large, one-time expense such as a home improvement project or debt consolidation.4
The interest rate is fixed, so your monthly payment remains consistent throughout the life of the loan.
Estimate your equity
The first step is to calculate your home’s equity through a real estate site such as Zillow.com
for a free estimate. When you have your estimated value, multiply it by 90% to determine the maximum equity you can borrow. Using that maximum equity amount, subtract the outstanding balance on your current mortgage. The difference between your maximum equity value and what you owe is the amount of equity available for your loan.
(market value x .90) - (first mortgage balance) = estimated equity
What you'll need for your application:
- Current mortgage statement
- Current employment and income information (recent paystub, retirement benefit statement, most recent tax return)
- Proof of homeowner's insurance
- Other documentation may be required
