FAQs about Home Equity Line of Credits

Accordion Section

The amount you can borrow is based on the amount of equity in your home. You can borrow up to 70% of that equity. To work out your home equity:
  • Find out the current market value of your home. For example: $350,000
  • Subtract your current mortgage balance. For example: $200,000
  • You have equity of $150,000
  • 70% of $150,000 = $105,000
You can use your HELOC for just about anything! Common uses include:
  • Home improvements, remodeling, and repairs
  • Vacations, weddings, and other family events
  • Medical, dental, and vision expenses
  • Unexpected expenses and emergency funds
  • Debt consolidation of high-interest credit cards and loans

Note that the interest you pay on your HELOC may be tax-deductible when the funds are used for substantial home improvements. That's why it's a good idea to draw on separate amounts of funds for each purpose – and keep records. Check with your tax advisor for details.

A HELOC is more like a credit card in that you get a credit limit, and you can use as much or as little of the funds as you want at any time. You can choose how much to repay each month. When you pay your balance down, you can use the funds repeatedly until the end of your 10-year draw period.

At the end of your HELOC draw period, you get a 15-year repayment period.

In contrast, a home equity loan is more like a personal loan. You get a lump sum payment and then make equal monthly payments through your loan term until the loan is paid off in full.

  • Both options can offer more competitive rates than unsecured loans and credit cards because your home serves as collateral in case you don't repay the money
  • Both options offer loan amounts of up to 80% of your home equity
HELOCs do generally require closing costs. Luckily, we are offering to pay up to $1,000 of your closing costs for you! You must simply keep your credit line open for at least 48 months.
