Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

An Equity Express line of credit is an open-end home equity loan. As you pay down the balance owed, the remainder of the credit line becomes available to use again. You can have cash available whenever you need it without completing a loan application each time. The interest rate is subject to change quarterly and is based on the prime rate plus or minus a margin.

  • Use as much or as little of your credit line as you need, whenever you need it. You’ll only pay interest on the outstanding balance. 
  • Use HELOC funds now for planned expenses, or later for unexpected expenses.
  • Quick and flexible access to your funds via eBanking, the mobile app, or at any branch. You decide when and how much to transfer to your checking account.

Second Mortgage Loan

A second mortgage is a closed end home equity loan. You will receive a check for the lump sum you borrow. The interest rate is fixed for three or more years.
