Leverage the equity in your home for home improvement projects or other large expenses.
Home Equity Line of Credit
What is a HELOC and How Does it Work?
A HELOC is a revolving line of credit. It works like a credit card or overdraft line of credit. However, because HELOCs are secured by the equity in your home, they offer a lower interest rate than unsecured credit accounts. When you are approved for a Home Equity Line of Credit, you’ll receive a certain borrowing limit. You can draw funds from your HELOC, make payments, and borrow again as needed, up to the limit.
What Can a Home Equity Line of Credit Be Used For?
Common uses of a HELOC include:
- A home renovation or improvement project
- Pay off credit card debt
- College tuition or other educational expenses
- Medical expenses
- Starting a business
- …and more!
