With a Home Equity Loan, you establish an open line of credit that allows you to withdraw funds as needed. Home Equity credit is ideal for major expenses. Popular uses include college education, vehicles, decks, pools, bill consolidation, and home improvements that increase the value of your home.
A HELP Loan is secured by either a 1st or 2nd mortgage on your primary residence. The minimum line of credit is $5,000 and the maximum is $100,000. Borrow up to 100% of the loan to value on your property. Minimum fees required for loan processing.* The interest rate may be adjusted twice a year based on changes in the prime rate. Minimum monthly payments are based on the highest outstanding loan balance and interest may be 100% tax deductible. Please see your tax advisor for further information.
*Some restrictions may apply.
