Borrowing Options – Which one is right for you?
Use the power of your home’s equity. Here’s how to choose the best option for your needs.
The equity in your home – which is roughly the amount it’s worth minus the amount you owe on it – can serve as a powerful financial tool. You can often borrow more at a lower interest rate than with other types of loans.
Home Equity Line of Credit
With our variable or fixed-rate Home Equity Line of Credit, you can choose between taking a large sum all at once or accessing the money as you need it. This makes it a good choice for remodeling your home, paying for college tuition, and serving as a source for emergency funds.
Home Equity Loan
This type of loan lets you borrow a specific amount and provides the stability of a fixed rate, fixed term with regular monthly payments. This is a good choice for consolidating your debts, purchasing big ticket items, or taking that long awaited dream vacation.
Benefits of Home Equity Financing
Whichever loan type you choose, both let you enjoy:
- Lower rates than with almost any other type of loan.
- The interest you pay is usually tax deductible (please consult with your tax advisor).
- You can take up to 20 years to repay which helps keep the payments affordable.
- There are no annual fees.
- You can borrow up to 80% of your home’s value.
- Our friendly, professional staff will guide you through the application process and answer any questions you may have.
- All decisions are made right here – at our office in Cedar Mill. No hoops to jump through, no hassles.
So kick back, relax and let the value of your home do the heavy lifting. To get your Home Equity Loan or Line of Credit, download our application stop by our office, give us a call at 503.643.1335.
