Why Use Your Home Equity?

One of the most powerful financial tools that homeowners have is their home equity - the value of your home minus your mortgage balance.

Home equity loans and lines of credit let you tap into your equity and use the cash for just about anything, such as home improvement projects, college tuition or debt consolidation. 

With UW Credit Union, you'll benefit from:

  • Custom rate quotes - Explore home equity line of credit (HELOC) options to find the best fit for you.
  • Competitive rates - You'll usually save big when comparing home equity rates to credit cards and personal loans.
  • Zero surprise fees - No annual fee, no application fee, no prepayment penalties, and low or no closing costs.
  • Potential tax benefits - Interest is usually tax deductible when used for home improvements (consult your tax advisor).

With lower rates and more flexible terms than most other loan types, home equity is often your smartest and best choice for financing.
