Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
We know your cash on hand does not always match the needs and goals of your household.
Costs associated with home improvements, family vacations, new vehicles or starting your own business can mount quickly.
Adding a credit card is not always the best solution for what life can throw at us. But a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) very well could be the ideal choice for you as a homeowner.
A HELOC, is a form of revolving credit in which your home serves as the collateral to secure the loan. It gives you the flexibility to draw money for whatever your needs or goals might be. Interest rates are often more favorable than what you might encounter with other types of debt like credit cards. Interest is often tax-deductible.
HOW DOES IT WORK?By borrowing against the equity available in your home, you control when and how you use your money. The FAB&T HELOC is a reusable source of credit that is replenished as your repay your outstanding debt. The amount of loanable equity is determined by 85 percent of the value in your home, minus what you owe on your existing mortgage.
You can borrow as much or as little as you need from the HELOC and interest is only charged on the amount you are actually using.
