Money to make home your happy place.

Your home provides you with a safe, comfortable place to live. It can provide you with financial benefits as well. The equity you've built up can unlock low-cost loans that may be used to cover repairs, additions, big-ticket purchases, family celebrations, college tuition - and pretty much anything else you can think of.

** APR=Annual Percentage Rate. Promotional rate on interest-only HELOCs of 3.50% APR for the first 12 months of the loan. APR for all transactions and balances will be based upon your contracted rate which will be a variable rate based upon The Wall Street Journal prime rate which was 7.00% as of 11/02/2022, but will never be more than the maximum APR (Annual Percentage Rate) of 18% or less than 4.00%. This is a variable rate loan. Your loan has a balloon payment. At the end of the loan term, any balance remaining will have to be paid. Most consumers with a balloon note refinance their loan before the final balloon payment becomes due. A minimum outstanding balance of $10,000 must be maintained for the first 18 months on interest only HELOCs and $8,200 for the first 12 months on regular HELOCs to avoid closing costs. Closing costs may range from $115-$1150. This convenient line of credit is available when you need it. Home owners insurance required. For qualified borrowers, certain restrictions apply.
