Frequently Asked Questions
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is an open-ended line of credit. A credit limit is set based on the amount of equity you have in your home and can be used whenever you need it. Unlike a home equity loan, once the balance of a HELOC is paid down, the line remains open. Your monthly payment will vary based on your outstanding balance and the variable interest rate. A HELOC is best suited for people who want access to funds in the case of an emergency, have children starting college, or perhaps plan to make a series of purchases or payments over time.
