Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

Home Equity Lines of Credit, also known as HELOCs, are loans that are secured by your primary residence, and they offer a revolving line of credit to meet your borrowing needs. For example, if you’re planning on a home renovation, you can borrow new funds for each step of your project, rather than as a single lump sum. Schedule an appointment with a loan officer today to get started.

Benefits of a Home Equity Line of Credit

Lower Interest Rates
HELOCs tend to offer lower interest rates when compared to credit cards, making them useful for ongoing projects.

Tax Deductions
The IRS allows interest payments on HELOCs to be tax-deductible if you use the money for home improvements (consult a tax advisor regarding the deductibility of interest).

Borrow What You Need
Unlike home equity loans and personal loans that disburse in a lump sum, you can use HELOC funds as you go.

Flexible Repayment
HELOCs often provide flexibility in terms of how you pay them off.
