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 Loan
Also referred to as a Second Mortgage, a Home Equity Loan (HE) is a fixed-term loan where you borrow cash upfront and pay it back on a regular schedule with a fixed interest rate, much like a standard fixed mortgage.

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.
