Understanding Your Loan Options
You need to borrow money to fix a leaky roof, but you're not sure of the best option. We would love to connect with you about all of your loan options, including using the equity in your home to borrow just what you need at a rate you can afford.
Home Equity Lines of Credit
Typically used for home improvements, medical bills, or debt consolidation, a home equity line of credit is when you borrow money against the equity in your home. You pay interest only on the amount you borrow and you can access the funds in an emergency.
Home Equity Loans
With this type of loan, you're also borrowing against the equity in your home but you receive the funds as one lump sum with typically a fixed interest rate. Common uses include home improvements and debt consolidation. And right now, get 4.49% APR1 for 15 years.
Personal loans are helpful if you don't have a lot of equity in your home. Your payments will stay the same for the duration of the loan, allowing you to easily budget your monthly payments. Typical uses are credit card consolidation or vehicle repairs. Our current rate for a 5-Year personal loan is 7.55% APR2.
Personal Access Lines
Similar to a personal loan, but you can access the money as you need it. You'll pay interest only on the money you borrow which means your payments will vary. Typical uses include emergencies and debt consolidation.
