When you choose a Home Equity Loan, Home Equity Line of Credit, or a Home Improvement Loan from ECU, you will receive excellent service, low rates and a tremendous amount of flexibility.
Home Equity Loan
Use equity in your home to fund college or medical expenses, renovate your home, dream vacation, purchase a boat or RV, or consolidate high-interest debt. No matter what your borrowing needs are, your home’s equity can provide a low-interest solution.
Home Equity Loans are a great option for those who prefer a low, fixed rate and anticipated monthly payments.
A Home Equity Loan is a smart way to finance a specific purchase.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
A HELOC is best for those who prefer the flexibility of an open-ended line of credit with a variable interest rate. As you make payments, the money becomes available again for other uses. It’s a great option when you have ongoing borrowing needs.
HELOC’s allow the borrowers to access their equity (limit) at their own discretion when they need it and the amount they need. A traditional home equity loan allows an advance only once every 12 months. Minimum advance on HELOC is $4,000.
