Your home could be your best asset when paying for major home improvements or any other large purchase or expense. Golden 1’s Home Equity Loan and Home Equity Line of Credit are secured by your home so you can get a better interest rate than a traditional installment or consumer loan. Plus, you can borrow up to $500,000 and the interest may be tax deductible!1
Qualified buyers can purchase a home for as little as 10% down and avoid paying costly Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) with our 80-10-10 loan. Here’s how it works:
You keep your hard earned money, and enjoy homeownership with tax advantages1.
Equity My Way Line of Credit2 allows you to withdraw cash only when you need it and gives you peace of mind knowing that cash is available if you expect ongoing expenses over a longer period of time.
A Fixed-Rate Equity Loan2 is a good option for members who need a set amount of money for a specific purpose. With this type of loan, you get a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan and the lump sum, in one disbursement.
