Home Equity Loans

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is useful for borrowers who are looking for ongoing access to a line of credit. Some of the advantages of a HELOC are that you only pay for the advances that are drawn against the line of credit. This solution is great for people who are looking to make various home improvements, are starting a remodeling project, or are looking for help to pay for college, a wedding, or education costs.

  • Variable rate
  • Minimum loan amount $5,000
  • Borrow up to 85% of the equity you have in your home

Home Equity Closed End Loan is a great solution for borrowers who are looking to make a large one-time purchase. Fixed monthly payments for a set term allow you to keep your finances on track. A closed end loan is great for things like a one-time remodel, roof repair, new pool, or a debt consolidation.

How is a home equity loan different than a personal loan?

Home equity loans are different because we use your home as collateral for the loan. For this reason, we are able to do home equity loans only for properties located in the State of Michigan. With a home equity loan, you may be able to write off the interest of this loan but, as always, please seek the advice of your tax advisor.
