Home Equity Loans can be taken out for almost any reason, from simple home improvement projects and remodeling, to helping pay for college expenses or consolidating debt.

A Home Equity Loan is a fixed rate second mortgage you borrow against the equity in your home; you'll receive the full loan amount at funding. It may be suitable if you know the exact amount you need and want a fixed payment for a fixed term. A Home Equity Line of Credit HELOC may be better if you want funds available for ongoing or unexpected expenses.

The rate you may qualify for is based on factors including your credit rating and the combined loan-to-value (CLTV) of your property. A minimum credit qualifying score is required. Rates listed are effective as of 07/21/2024 and subject to change without notice. Equity loan products are simple interest. This means the amount of interest estimated on the loan is based on the assumption that monthly payments will be made on the precise due date. Any early payments will reduce the final amount due, while any late payments will increase the final amount due. The final amount due may be substantially higher than the amount reflected on the application and must be paid in full on the maturity date of the loan. An approved application is required for a rate to be locked. All loans subject to approval.
