Home Equity Line of Credit
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a revolving credit line that can provide a source of continuing credit for homeowners who have built up equity in their homes. Essentially, a home equity line of credit affords the capability to withdraw funds as you need them using your house as collateral, and then make payments back.
A HELOC allows you to borrow against the available equity, and the loan is secured by a mortgage against the borrower’s primary residence. Customers may easily access their approved line for any purpose they choose. Whether for personal or business, the borrower can request an automatic deposit to their pre-authorized checking account.
Reasons and Potential Uses for a HELOC
Homeowners apply for a HELOC for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to:
- Education – Do you and your partner have extensive student loans? Are you sending two children to private school? Offered an educational opportunity with an out-of-reach cost? A HELOC might make it easier to manage those overheads.
- Family, Care, and Support – Do you have an ailing parent, sick child, or newborn you would like to spend more time with? Is your family dreaming of adoption? HELOCs might provide financial relief so you can focus on the things that matter.
- Home Renovation Projects – Ready for a home makeover? Finally time to take the plunge and install a pool? Need a little extra space for your growing family? A HELOC could present you the opportunity to improve your home.
- Debt Consolidation – Drowning in credit card debt with sizeable interest rates? HELOCs typically offer better interest rates and deliver the capability to make one payment instead of many.
Dream vacations, costly kitchen remodels, expensive education, or unexpected life events don’t have to hold you back from financial security. A HELOC could equip you with the support and tools you need to accomplish your goals.
Home Equity Line of Credit Rates and Details
Home equity line of credit rates are generally based on a variable interest rate, as opposed to a fixed interest rate. Over time, the interest rate you pay will change based on several factors.
Before borrowing, talk with your lender about rates and how the value of the index rises and falls.

What Are the Home Equity Line of Credit Requirements?
Having available equity in your home is the primary home equity line of credit requirement. The balance that you owe on your home must be less than the value of the house.
