Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC)

Financing your home needs – inside as well as out.

The appearance of a home plays an important role in our lives. It’s where we want to feel most comfortable and secure. To do so, we constantly look at ways to improve it such as attractive landscaping, more lighting, better roofing, room additions, new furniture, modern electronics or a remodeled kitchen. While you might not mind spending more to beautify your home, you might prefer spending less money in the process. Please note that we do not provide stand alone HELOC’s, first position must be obtained.

Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC): A HELOC is a revolving line of credit that allows you to borrow at any time for as much as you need simply by writing a check or transferring the funds into your checking account up to an approved amount. As you pay off the principal, you can use the credit again (like a credit card). An initial advance of $25,000 is required and minimum payment requirements for the first ten years are interest-only.

To discuss which option is best suited for your needs, please call (800) 917-1595 to speak to one of our trained specialists.
