Loans - Home Equity

Home Equity

A Home Equity loan lets you use the equity that you have in your home to borrow money. This is a great option when you know exactly how much you need to borrow.

Use the value in your home to fund home improvement projects, education or other expenses.

With a Home Equity loan, you’ll receive your funds in one lump sum which is repaid over the term of your loan. You’ll enjoy the comfort of knowing that your monthly payments will remain the same throughout the life of your loan with our non-variable rate.
