Home Equity Loan

A home equity loan may be the perfect solution if consolidating debt, starting a home renovation, or making a significant purchase is on your New Year's resolution list.

What is a Home Equity Fixed-Rate Loan?

A home equity installment loan is a type of loan that allows you to borrow a lump sum of money using your home's equity as collateral.  Home equity loans typically have fixed interest rates, meaning that your monthly payments will remain the same over the life of the loan, up to 30 years.

The amount you can borrow with a home equity loan is generally limited to a percentage of your home's equity, usually up to 80%.  Home equity loans are used for a variety of reasons, including debt consolidation to simplify monthly payments, home improvements, education expenses, and emergency expenses.

Fixed terms

A home equity loan is worth considering if you have a large one-time expense, or if you want to consolidate debt and focus on paying it off. It offers fixed rates and terms with a steady repayment schedule for the life of the loan.


Lower rates

Home equity loans typically have lower rates than other types of loans because the loan is secured by your home's equity making it a cost-effective way to borrow and pay off other high-interest debt.
