    Why Choose a Home Equity Fixed-Rate Loan?

    A Home Equity loan gives you easy access to the equity in your home to pay for home improvements, college tuition, and more.  And, rates are typically lower than credit cards or other unsecured loans. Fixed-rate loans make budgeting easy because your monthly payments remain the same over the life of the loan.

    What about Payments?

    With a Home Equity Term Loan, you pay a fixed interest rate. One of the main benefits of a fixed rate is that whether interest rates rise or fall, your monthly payments won't be affected because your rate is fixed for the life of the loan so you will have lower borrowing costs. We do have other options, check out our home equity options – including a line of credit.

Special Ways to Boost Equity with DIY Home Improvements

Home equity is the difference between your home’s market value and what you still owe on it. Home equity loans can pay for major home renovations, college tuition, and more. One way to increase home equity is through home renovations that boost your home’s resale market value. But major renovations, like kitchen or bathroom remodels, can be quite expensive and can even increase property taxes. Below, we outline some do-it-yourself home improvements you can make this fall!

Paint the walls. While a bright red wall or decorative wallpaper can be fun, current homebuyers are drawn to neutral, lighter walls. Paint your walls cream, light gray, or another neutral color that lets potential homebuyers envision their lives there. Also, consider that homebuyers prefer specific colors for specific rooms.

Redo your ceiling. Say goodbye to the popcorn ceiling. These ceilings can be redone easily, even by beginners! A simple, smooth white ceiling can brighten your home and leave room for accent walls, furniture, and more for future buyers.

Install new hardware. Whether you’re looking for ornate or minimalist hardware, new handles and faucets can make a difference in the kitchen and bathroom. While installing new cabinets can be challenging, swapping out outdated hardware is relatively simple.

Paint the cabinets. Beginners can install new cabinets, but it’s even easier to paint your current ones. With a coat of paint and new hardware, your kitchen will look brand new – all on a budget.
