Think of it as finding buried treasure that can help pay for that special home project, vacation or consolidate debt. You've worked hard, now let us help guide you to realize the full potential your dreams.

Home Equity Line of Credit

You're now a homeowner and looking to upgrade that kitchen, pay down high interest debt, or need cash now for that unexpected expense. Unlike high-interest credit cards or payday loans, a Home Equity Line of Credit (also called a HELOC) is a smart way to borrow money by using the equity from your home.  

No matter what your situation is, we'll always work with you to make that HELOC dream a reality.

The  key difference between Home Equity Loans and Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)  is that Home Equity Loans can be offered as single lump sum at a fixed rate. Whereas a HELOC, can be drawn upon as a line of credit at a variable rate.
A home equity loan is a type of loan that allows you to use the equity in your home as collateral to borrow money. A single lump sum, usually at a fixed rate and monthly payment, making your repayment schedule predictable over the life of the loan. 

You can determine how much equity you have in your house by subtracting the amount you owe on your house from the appraised value.
