Home Equity

Benefit from the equity in your home

Home equity loans and home equity lines of credit (HELOC) can be used for home improvements, major purchases and debt consolidation. Since an equity loan or HELOC uses your home as collateral, the interest rate is generally lower than other types of loans—saving you money. Plus, the interest may be tax deductible*.
