Home Equity Loan

Use home equity for the finances you need*

  • Borrow up to 90% of your home’s value
  • Terms up to 10 years
  • Fixed rates

*Home Equity Loan: Loans subject to credit approval. See current rates and terms. Home equity financing will require a minimum of a 10% down payment. For example a $100,000 loan approved at 90% of value would require a down payment of $10,000. The minimum payment for a $90,000 loan with a 6.99% APR and 10-year term is $1044.51.  This payment example does not include taxes and insurance.  Your actual payment may be higher.  The monthly obligation will be determined by the total loan amount at the time of closing and the term and interest rate of the loan.  See our Loan Calculators for specific examples. You may prepay you loan at any time without penalty.  In the case of Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), Equity Loan, or a no-fee first mortgage loan, we may require repayment of the hard costs if the loan is paid off within the first two years.

*HELOC: University Credit Union HELOC's have a 10 year draw period followed by a 10 year repayment period. Minimum line of credit is $5,000 with a $100 minimum advance. Fees will be incurred if HELOC is closed within 24 months of its origination date.  You may prepay you loan at any time without penalty.  In the case of Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), Equity Loan, or a no-fee first mortgage loan, we may require repayment of the hard costs if the loan is paid off within the first two years.

*Short-term Mortgages: Loans subject to credit approval. See current rates and terms. No-Fee First Home Mortgage financing will require a minimum of a 20% down payment. For example a $100,000 loan approved at 80% of value would require a down payment of $20,000. The minimum payment for a $80,000 loan with a 4.74% APR and 12-year term is $729.52.  This payment example does not include taxes and insurance.  Your actual payment may be higher.  The monthly obligation will be determined by the total loan amount at the time of closing and the term and interest rate of the loan.  See our Loan Calculators for specific examples.  Closing costs waived include origination, processing, underwriting, tax service, appraisal, credit report, and title fees.
