How does a home equity loan work?
After you are approved for and close your home equity loan, we will send you a check for the entire amount of the loan. The following month, you will start repaying the loan at a fixed interest rate and payment.
After I am approved for a home equity loan, how quickly do I get a check?
Once you close your loan, there is a three-day rescission period. Your check is sent to you by overnight mail on the fourth day.
Is it possible to pay off my home equity loan early?
Yes, you can pay off your home equity loan early with no penalties. However, if the loan is paid off within the first 24 months, you must reimburse us your closing costs, up to $300.
Do I have to pay closing costs?
A maximum of $750 in closing costs are waived at closing.
How much can I apply for with a home equity loan?
We offer home equity loans from $10,000 to $500,000, based on the available equity in your home.
How is my equity determined?
Your equity is based on your current home’s value, less the balance of any existing mortgage. The maximum loan to value (LTV) is 80%.
Should I get a HELOC or home equity loan?
Each home equity option comes with its own benefits, so the answer depends on what works better for you.
With a home equity loan, you get the entire loan amount at once. That works well if you know how much you need to spend. You’ll also pay a fixed interest rate with a home equity loan, which means you’ll know what your monthly payment will be.
With a home equity line of credit, you can use your funds as you need them. This is helpful if you don’t know exactly how much you’ll need. Because the amount you use may vary over the course of the HELOC, your monthly payment may change.
