Whether you want cash to cover expenses, or just want the security of knowing that you have access to funds should the need occur, a home equity line of credit (HELOC) is a revolving loan that allows you to tap into the value of your home whenever you need it.
The process of obtaining the line of credit is similar to obtaining a mortgage or home equity loan, although settlement costs are usually lower for a HELOC. Once the line of credit has been opened, you can borrow what you need, up to a predetermined maximum, by check or credit card. As you repay the loan, the funds are restored. The line of credit stays open for a predetermined period—usually a minimum of 10 years.
Interest rates on a HELOC are usually adjustable, and tied to the prime rate. Some offer guaranteed introductory rates for a short period of time, and some are convertible to fixed-rate loans when you draw on them. Unlike standard Adjustable Rate Mortgages, HELOCs have no adjustment caps.

What Our Customers are Saying
Thanks, Robin for all your help with the quick closing on our VA loan. Needless to say, when we applied at the end of the month, we were extremely concerned that we would not be approved with everything ready to go to make our closing on the 12th. Given all the details, it was nothing short of amazing that you were able to work everything out and get us to settlement in less than 3 weeks. We really appreciate your hand work on our behalf. Thanks again.~ T. & H.S.
