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.
Use Home Equity to Lower Your Down Payment
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:
- Obtain a Home Loan for 80% of the purchase price
- Add a Home Equity Line of Credit or Loan at 10% of the purchase price
- Make a down payment of 10%
You keep your hard earned money, and enjoy homeownership with tax advantages2.
