Equity Loans

Northwest Federal offers two basic types of equity loans to help you make the most of the equity in your home—fixed-rate Equity Loan and Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). An equity loan uses your home as collateral, so interest rates are generally lower than other types of loans, and the interest may be tax deductible (consult your tax advisor for details). Compare the features to see which option is right for you.
