Home Equity Loans allow you to borrow against the equity in your home. Because your home is such a valuable asset, you can often qualify more easily for a Home Equity Loan and benefit from a lower interest rate than financing with a Personal Loan or a credit card.
There are two options for Home Equity Loans. Our experienced mortgage lending team is here to advise and guide you on the best financing option for your situation.
Home Equity Line of Credit
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) allows you to borrow up to a certain limit, which you access when needed, giving you more flexibility. If you end up needing less money than expected, you can borrow less and only pay interest on that lesser amount rather than the full amount you qualified for.

How do I calculate my equity?
Your equity is the difference between what your home is worth and how much you owe on your home. For example, if your home is worth $400,000 and you owe $250,000, your equity is $150,000.
How much can I borrow?
How much you can borrow depends on factors such as how much equity you have, how much other debt you have, your income and employment situation, and your credit rating.
