Use Your Home Equity

Take care of your project using your home's equity. Receive a line of credit that is affordable and flexible to finance what you need.

Use the equity in your home to secure a competitive-rate loan to pay for anything you need: remodel your house, consolidate debt or take a dream vacation. We have many options to make payments more affordable.

Plus, enjoy the convenience of locking in all or part of the balance on your line of credit into a fixed rate, fixed term loan. Have access to five rate locks for the 15-year term of your line.

Our Home Equity Options Are

  • Affordable—Rate is typically lower.
  • Flexible—Choose a fixed rate term up to 15 years or a line of credit to use again and again.
  • Get more—Borrow up to 100% of your home's equity.
  • Save—Interest is usually tax deductible (see tax advisor).
  • Safeguard—Help protect your family's best interest in the event of an unforeseen circumstance. We offer Payment Protection†† for your home equity loan in the event of death, disability or the inability to work due to illness, injury or the need to take Family Medical Leave to tend to the needs of a relative. Sign up when you apply for your loan or contact us to help you decide what is best for your situation.
