Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

Sometimes referred to as a HELOC, a Home Equity Line of Credit lets you borrow against the equity you've built in your home to finance your dreams or needs. Customers can access their HELOC by using checks, asking for an advance in person, on the phone, or by using On-Line Banking.

Your credit line (or limit) is set when the loan is made, but you can draw against the line as you need it rather than receiving the entire loan as a lump sum. Whatever you borrow reduces your available credit line until you pay it down. Then you can borrow from it again.

Home Equity Lines of Credit have variable interest rates. The terms of repayment are spelled out in your agreement.

Home Equity Loan

A home equity loan is secured by the equity in your home. The loan is disbursed in a lump sum with a fixed rate. You then make monthly repayments over the term of the agreement.
