Home Equity Lines of Credit

The smart way to build your future.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a great way to tap into your home's equity to consolidate bills or handle big expenses like home improvements or college tuition.   

A HELOC works a lot like a credit card; you'll get pre-approved for a specific spending limit and can then use the money as you need it. You make monthly payments based on the outstanding balance and your interest rate.

You can also lock a portion of your available line into a fixed-rate sub account. You can lock in up to three fixed-rate advances.* So you use the money as you need it—use it now or save it for an expense down the road. 

How can you benefit from a SECU Home Equity Line of Credit?

  • Save money with interest rates that are lower than most credit cards
  • Deduct interest and save on income taxes (see your tax advisor)
  • Lock in a portion of your available funds at a fixed rate, up to three times.*
  • Conveniently access funds with a Home Equity Visa® card you can use anywhere Visa is accepted
  • Track and manage your account 24/7 via Online and Mobile Banking
  • Save time and enjoy the added convenience of scheduling the closing at your home or office - even on an evening or weekend

Plus, there's no application fee, no annual fee and no closing costs.**

Now that's a different direction.
