Borrow Using the Equity in My Home

As a valued Citadel customer, we make it easy to get the cash you need. Home equity loans allow you to borrow against the equity in your home. Essentially, your home’s equity is its market value minus your mortgage balance. From making home improvements to consolidating credit cards, a home equity loan can help.

Unsure about what the difference between a home equity loan and home equity line of credit is? With a Home Equity Loan, you receive the money in a lump sum with a fixed interest rate. With a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), you have the ability to draw the money multiple times as you need money up until the maximum amount with a variable rate.
