Home Equity Lending Solutions
Putting your home equity to work
Your home can be your best ally. That’s because the equity in your home can open doors to pay for home improvements, consolidate your debt, pay for student tuition and cover large expenses. Your home’s equity is the difference between the amount your home is worth, and the amount you still owe on it. A home equity loan (HE Loan) or line of credit (HELOC) allows you to borrow against that available equity.
How it works
You can potentially borrow1 up to 80% of your home’s value, minus the amount still owed on your home. For example, if your home is appraised at $200,000 and you owe $90,000, here is how much you can qualify to borrow:
- $200,000 x 80% = $160,000
- $160,000 - $90,000 = $70,000
$70,000 is therefore the maximum home equity loan or line of credit you may borrow from us.
Loans vs. lines of credit
