If you are a homeowner, you may be able to use the available equity in your home to qualify for a Golden 1 home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC). Because equity loans and HELOCs are secured by your home, you’re more likely to get a lower interest rate and better payment terms than you would with a traditional installment or consumer loan. Plus, you may be able to deduct the interest you pay on your home equity loan or HELOC!1
A Fixed-Rate Equity Loan2 may be the best option for you if you need a set amount of cash for a specific purpose, and you want the stability of a low, fixed interest rate over the life of your loan. Upon qualification, you’ll receive your loan amount in one lump-sum disbursement.
Equity My Way Line of Credit2 is a form of revolving credit that’s secured by your home. Because you can withdraw cash as you need it, and payments are based on your outstanding balance, this may be the best option for you if you expect to incur new or ongoing expenses over a longer period.
