If you’re a homeowner, you can borrow against the equity you’ve built up in your home for a variety of financing needs. AmeriCU offers both Home Equity Lines of Credit and Home Equity Installment Loans at low rates and low or no closing costs. Plus, the interest you pay on Home Equity financing may be tax-deductible. (Check with your tax advisor.)
Lines of Credit
With a Home Equity Line of Credit, you can simply write a check or transfer funds from your line of credit into your checking account as needed up to your approved credit limit. As you repay your credit line, the funds become available to borrow again with no need to reapply. This is a popular choice for people who want flexibility to pay everyday expenditures.
Those members interested in financing larger expenses such as major home improvement, a new vehicle, high-interest debt consolidation, educational expenses, etc. may consider a Home Equity Loan. The repayment term and payment amounts are fixed for the life of the loan, a good option for those who prefer fixed payments for budgeting purposes.
