Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit

Put the equity in your home to work to tackle that home improvement project, pay for college tuition, consolidate existing debt, and more.

Understanding the difference between a Home Equity Line of Credit and a Home Equity Loan will put you in a position of being able to choose which one is right for you.

Home Equity Line of Credit

Borrow smaller amounts whenever
you need. 

Home Equity Loan

Borrow a lump sum and pay it back
over a number of years.

Home Equity Line of Credit

A Home Equity Line of Credit1 allows you to borrow funds on an as-needed basis. As a revolving line of credit, when the outstanding balance is repaid the available credit is replenished.

A Home Equity Line of Credit is secured by your home and offers you. . .
  • Flexibility – draw money, pay it back, and draw it again, on your own schedule, when you need it, at any time during the initial 10-year draw period
  • Convenience – transfer funds online or over the phone, or simply use one of the checks that you will receive when your Home Equity Line of Credit is opened
  • Simplicity – the initial 10-year draw period is followed by a 15-year repayment period
