The value you’ve built into your home can help you afford that pool you’ve been dreaming about. HFCU’s Home Equity Loan can be used for just about any instance, —home remodeling, wedding funds, medical expenses, and even as tuition payment ….just to name a few.

Home Equity is the difference between the appraised value of your home and the amount still owed on your mortgage and any other property liens. For example, your house appraises for $300,000, and you have $100,000 left to pay on your mortgage. Your home equity would be $200,000.

Beneficial features with HFCU’s Home Equity Loan:

  • We pay normal closing costs* (title search, recording fee, release of lien, flood determination, and credit report).
  • Low Interest Rates. Our interest rates for a home equity loan fall far below those you’ll be offered on competitor’s personal loans, or credit cards.

Rates as low as 4.15% annual percentage rate for Texas members and 4.85% annual percentage rate for South Carolina members.

If you’ve been considering a Home Equity Loan, now is the time to lock in your low rate.
