Flexible financing options

When you have equity in your home, you have options. You can use that equity 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 Here are some other great features of our Home Equity Lines of Credit:

  • Financing options up to 90% of your home's estimate value
  • Possible tax benefits3

You'll save money with an introductory rate of 4.99% APR for the first six months, 8.00% APR variable thereafter.4

Estimate your equity

The first step is to calculate your home’s value 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) = available 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
