Home Equity Line of Credit
A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) can provide you with a certain amount of money, usually between 80-90% of the value of your home equity. The HELOC works somewhat like a credit card, and is made available to you for a limited time period (typically 5 or 10 years).
During what is called a “draw period,” you can withdraw funds from the line of credit whenever you need them. As you pay off the principal, your credit revolves, and you can use the line again and again for the duration of the draw period.
A HELOC from Bellco FCU offers a variety of benefits:
- Secured by the equity in your home
- Adjustable interest rate (with a cap)
- Withdraw the funds you need when you need them
- Monthly payments vary based on the amount borrowed and the current interest rate
- No restrictions on use of funds
- Useful for periodic expenses, such as emergency funds, debt consolidation, tuition, and home improvements
- Local, Pennsylvania decision-making and processing
