Make Your Home Work For You​

When you’re planning a home remodel, a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) or Home Equity Loan is a great choice. Use your home's equity— the difference between what you owe on your current mortgage loan and the home’s current market value —to borrow for multiple purposes including:

  • Home improvements
  • Home repair projects
  • Education expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • Debt consolidation

HELOC vs. Home Equity Loan

Choose a HELOC as a flexible source to finance home repairs and upgrades. This is a line of credit that allows you the ability to draw money whenever you need and comes with a variable interest rate. You only pay interest on the amount you draw. 

Choose a Home Equity Loan for home repairs and much more. This option gives you a lump sum of cash which is repaid over a fixed period with a fixed interest rate and fixed monthly payments over the life of the loan.

HELOC and Home Equity Loan FAQs

  • HELOCs operate on a monthly billing cycle, similar to a credit card. The minimum payment is calculated at the beginning of each cycle, and that payment is due before the next cycle begins.

    For example, let's say your due date is the first of the month, and we are in the month of March. The payment amount is calculated at the end of the business day on March 1, and that payment must be paid in full before the end of business day on April 1. At the end of the day on April 1, a new payment amount is calculated and that payment must be paid in full before the end of business day on May 1, and so on.

    If a payment is not made on time, any unpaid amounts from the previous cycle are added to the current cycle's minimum payment amount. There are multiple ways to find out your payment amount and due date. You will receive a billing notice every month stating the minimum payment amount and when it is due. This will be mailed to you unless you are enrolled in eDocuments. The amount due and next due date can also be verified by viewing your account online through Digital Banking or by contacting us.
  • You may request an increase to your HELOC in one of the following ways:
  • When applying for a home equity loan, please provide the following:
    • Proof of income (pay stubs for the last 30 days, 2 years W2 or 1040s)
    • Proof of Homeowner's Insurance (policy declaration page)
    • If you have a first mortgage, your most recent statement
    • A copy of your tax bill Additional information may be required.
  • A home equity loan and a HELOC offer different ways to access funds using the equity in your home:

    Home Equity Loan:

    • Provides a lump sum amount upfront.
    • Repaid over a fixed term with equal monthly payments.
    • Fixed interest rate for the loan duration.
    HELOC:
    • Offers a line of credit for a set time frame, often up to 10 years (draw period).
    • Operates like a credit card, allowing you to borrow as needed during the draw period.
    • Repayment period follows the draw period. This can last up to 15 years.
    • As you repay the principal, your credit becomes available again.
    • Variable interest rate tied to The Wall Street Journal Prime Rate.
    • Payments will vary depending on the interest rate and how much credit is used.

    HELOCs provide flexibility and the ability to access funds when needed, while home equity loans offer a fixed lump sum with consistent monthly payments. The choice depends on your financial goals and preferences.
