If you want to tap into your home equity for flexible financing, you can apply for a home equity loan (HELOAN) or a home equity line of credit (HELOC).
What is a HELOC?
As the name implies, a home equity line of credit gives you access to your funds via a line of credit, much like a credit card.
Credit card limits are typically pretty low, however. With a HELOC, you can have a significantly higher limit. Interest rates may rise and fall.
- Borrow as much or as little as you need up to your limit with a HELOC.
- Like a regular line of credit, the funds available refill once you pay down the balance.
What is a HELOAN?
This product, like a HELOC, allows you to borrow against your home equity. The difference is that instead of a line of credit, your funds are disbursed in a lump sum. The interest rate is typically fixed.
- Receive a larger amount of money all at once, ideal for big home repairs or other hefty expenses.

Our HELOC and HELOAN Features and Qualification
We offer a standalone mortgage that allows you to keep your current primary mortgage uninterrupted while still taking equity out of your home with the second one.
- $100,000 minimum initial draw
- The HELOC features an adjustable rate
- The HELOAN features a fixed rate
With a minimum credit score of 700, you can have any current primary mortgage + the new HELOC amounts up to 97.5% of the property value.
Even with a minimum credit score of 680, you can go to 95% of the property value.
If the HELOC amount is under $250,000, then a full appraisal is needed.
If the amount is over $250,000, then the combined mortgages cannot be more than 90% of the home’s value, but you can get just an exterior appraisal, which is simpler.
