Home Equity Loans

We can help you tap the equity in your home in two convenient ways.  A Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC) is the modern financial tool to help you best utilize the equity in your home. It is a line of credit you can use any time you need it, during your draw period, simply by writing a check or transferring funds.

A Second mortgage works like most consumer loans.  You borrow a set amount and pay it back over a specific period of time.  The interest rate is typically fixed for a period of 3 to 5 years and can be amortized up to 20 years.  Having a one- time advance can help you plan your future by knowing when your loan will be paid in full.

Use the money from your home equity for a home improvement, addition, college education, new car, vacation – almost anything! You can even use your low-interest home equity loan or line of credit to consolidate other loans or pay off higher-interest credit card debt.
