Do you want to take advantage of the equity that you’ve built in your home? Maybe you’ve been in your home for years, maybe the property value has increased, or maybe you made a down payment when you purchased. Home Equity Loans are simply secured by the equity in your home.

Use the following formula to determine the equity available in your home:

Home Equity = Your Home’s Appraised Value MINUS Your Mortgage Balance MINUS Any Home Improvement Loans That Use Your Home As Collateral

Home Equity loans can be used for just about anything!

  • Remodel your home
  • Build a swimming pool
  • Pay for a wedding
  • Consolidate debt
  • Pay for tuition
    …just to name a few!
